Go buy this new thing from the new world music arm of Drag City, Yaala Yaala Records: Pekos / Yoro Diallo. They also just released another CD of music by an artist who has been featured here at awesome tapes from africa, Daouda Dembele. (read: my Daouda Dembele post)

This is a tape from Mali that I bought from my favorite exotic music shop in Accra, Ghana. Apparently Malian expats in Ghana dig them some griot-style vocals with that sick metal scraper in every song, complete with electronic sounds. Life is good.

this might be one of your best posts. The 5th track (“Bê Manken”) has a broken link, though. Can we fix? I love the other 5 tracks.
