Reseña de álbum

Guitarist Lobi Traoré plays deep blues from his homeland in Mali, east of that other River of Song — the Niger. He is not as famous as the late Ali Farka Toure, his countryman and grand influence on much of Mali's music (and who actually produced Traoré's 1994 set, Bamako, named for the country's capitol). Traoré was the guitarist on Damon Albarn's Mali Music recording that kicked off the Honest Jons label that this recording is released on. The blurb on this boasts a BBC review that positions Traoré somewhere between Jimmy Page and John Lee Hooker. Forget it. Traoré's guitar playing is utterly electric, gritty, funky, and knotty. His style is raw but extremely sophisticated. Check out the opener, "Jugu," with its killer polyrhythms and Traoré's throaty baritone spitting out the lyrics. His fills cover the breadth and depth of the rhythm section's furious playing. The distortion has nothing to do with sound effects, man — he's playing it at ten! The following cut, "Deni Kelen Be Koko," feels a lot like something that should be on Fat Possum if they did a field recording in Mali. There is so much here that is steaming, tough, and wiry. This is the best blues record of early 2006 and it isn't even a blues record. It's hard Malian folk music gone electric, and full of the most killer singing, dancing, and yes, guitar playing out there.

At 16 he traveled to the city of Ségou, where at the age of 19 he discovered Zani Diabate & the Super Djata Band playing Bambara repertoire. It influenced Traoré to start playing his own music in the Bambara language. He started at weddings and then bars,...
