This compilation of tracks recorded at Ali Farka Touré’s Studio Bogolan in Bamako is a perfect who’s who of the Malian music of the last fifteen years, featuring everyone from Toumani Diabaté to Tinariwen to Rokia Traoré and Ouma Sangaré.

There are reminders of great bands such as Mandekalou, with the epic “Malissadio”; and, less successfully, visiting foreigners Damon Albarn and Björk.
