One of the things I like about writing a music blog is I only have to write about the things I love. Periodically I get asked to do reviews of music for people but I find it really hard if I’m not personally really excited about the music. In short I’m better at gushing than dispassionate appraisal. This is the latest thing to have blown me away. I don’t know anything about Abou Diarra but this combination of immaculately produced Malian music combined with blues harmonica is just perfect. I can’t really think of much else to say about it. From the uptempo stuff to the downtempo it’s an amazing album from start to finish.
