For decades, the musical traditions of Mali have proved irresistible to English and American audiences; one of the first giants of Malian music to cross over was Ali Farka Tour. As a boy, Afel Bocoum idolized Touré, eventually becoming a member of his band and, thanks to Touré, getting his own international record deal. That deal has slowly borne fruit—Bocoum's World Circuit debut, Alkibar, was released in 1999; Lindé, is itss follow-up. To be fair, Bocoum also released two excellent albums with his band Alkibar on Belgian label Contre-Jour in 2006 and 2009 and worked with Damon Albarn on 2002's Mali Music. (Albarn and World Circuit founder Nick Gold are executive producers on Lindé.) But in tone, texture, and construction, Lindé is very much the successor to Alkibar, combining a range of Malian song traditions and instruments with Bocoum's mellow, muscular voice and blues-flecked guitar and a grab-bag of guest spots. The album is quite vibe-y throughout, giving off a relaxed, midtempo feel that also shows a slight weariness: The current political and economic state of Mali is dire, and while Lindé does not directly address his country's issues, Bocoum's insistence on optimism and unity stands as its own sort of statement. The reggae-adjacent groove of "Bombolo Liilo" is one of the best examples, as Bocoum has constructed a rather intricate composition here, with a loping trombone line by Studio One mainstay Vin Gordon that complements, rather than doubles, the guitar melody, as Madou Sidiki Diabaté's kora provides a unique, bluesy filigree. Likewise, on "Yer Gando," Bocoum's plaintive vocals are supported by violin (Joan as Police Woman’s Joan Wasser) and ngoni (Harouna Samake Kamale) that, for a moment at least, gives the song a country-and-western vibe. That easy, instinctive interplay between musicians drives the proceedings here, resulting in an album that sounds breezy and casual on the surface, but, ultimately, is a much more complex and satisfying creation. © Jason Ferguson/Qobuz

In the last decade, they have done just that thanks to artists such as Luis Fonsi, J. Balvin and Bad Bunny. Read on for 10 of the genre’s most important albums. Reggaeton won’t be going anywhere any time soon.

Picasso, when painting meets music

The modernist genius of Picasso quickly went beyond the pictorial frame to irradiate music and dance, two arts with which the Spanish painter has always had a close relationship, even influencing his composer friends met along the way.
