Ali Farka toure was one of africas most internationally renound musicians. He is known for his marrying the blues and his traditional malian style.

I first heard Ali when my mother used his music for one of her films. It was one of his later albums niafunke, focussing on a more traditional style. I loved it in the first 30 seconds and am now a big fan!

This song is a beautiful example of his fantastic style. When he plays the blues he plays with your heart.
