More than ever, he is showing himself to be the living, vital connection between Mali and the Mississippi. for this album, traore brings in musicians from the Southern States of the USA he had met on tour: Cedric Watson on violin and washboard, and Corey Harris on guitar, together with Leyla McCalla on cello and vocals. His intention was to change the coloration of his songs, while conserving their original character. this sublime meeting of western and African musicians remind us of the divine partnership of trio da kali and kronos quartet.
