Souley Kanté — Bi Magni

These are jams by which to live. Especially tracks 1, 4, and 5.

PS—While you’re checking these songs out go ahead and buy yourself that Souley Kanté ringtone you’ve always wanted, now only 250 CFA francs. So what if these interpretations don’t sound exactly like the original? You will surely receive due props from those in the know.

I also bought a whole bunch of tapes in Mali about a year ago and Souley Kante was one of a couple that really stand out. What a voice! Didn’t you post another Souley Kante tape some time ago or did I dream that? I went looking in your archives but couldn’t find anything!?
