This is a brilliant track. Any chance you could put up a song or two more by Traouré?

Also, do you know if it is Bambara/Bamanakan or another language he’s using in this song? I’ve done some research and he was born in the region where Bambara is (or was) pretty much the primary language.

Thanks for a great blog, too.

probably Bambaara, but don’t know for sure.

My god, just brilliant. I just found your blog tonight, Dec. 19, 2006 and I am so glad I did. What a treasure. Traoure is one of those artists you hear once every ten years or so. Thanks so much for posting it.
