Happy New Year and best wishes for 2018. And thanks to all of you for your encouragement and feedback.
This first post of the year is a short one featuring a favorite recording from Mali. I, unfortunately, despite my best efforts, don't know anything about Gaoussou Kone. A few hours of googling didn't turn up anything and friends in Mali couldn't help either.
I have two cassettes from Gaoussou and they are both terrific. Can any of the Malian music experts out there compensate for my ignorance?
