TAJ MAHAL & TOUMANI DIABATE: KULANJAN (Hannibal)

Intriguing cross-cultural encounter between the celebrated postmodern bluesman and the ensemble of Malian kora player Diabate. While not entirely fulfilling the promise of the opening track, the mixture of rollicking 12-bar riffs and trance-inducing kora patterns is strikingly different, and often very beautiful.
