For his fourth outing, Mali's Bagayogo, aka Techno Issa, relies less on the dancefloor for his music, and aims more for the head. It's a definite change, but one that advances his music by leaps and bounds, adding touches of jazz to "Dunu Kan," for instance, or bringing shadows into the sound on "Namadjidja." He hasn't completely abandoned the feet as "Fimani" shows, but this is definitely a more exploratory side of the man, working alongside longtime producer Yves Wernert. There's a definite maturity about everywhere, whether it's Bagayogo's singing, now more assured and emotional than ever, or his n'goni playing, which is concise and pointed. It's more organic, the basic tracks recorded out in the open, and the songs themselves have grown, bringing in horns ("N'Tana"). But it's the spirit of jazz that floats across the album, echoing through "Dibi" and the surprisingly Western-sounding "Tcheni Tchemakan." With Mali Koura Techno Issa takes a quantum leap.

The Great History of Malian Music

Mandingo traditions or urban intersections, ancestral chants from the griots or dance bands on the day following the Independence, the family tree of Malian music possesses deep roots, leafy branches and a strong sap. Let’s take a look back at the fascinating history.

Tuareg Blues: The Rock Oasis

Since the Tuareg group Tinariwen released their first official album in 2002, entitled “The Radio Tisdas Sessions”, their electric, guitar-soaked music has become its own category of rock - one that is recognised and respected from Bamako to Los Angeles. This international success has allowed many musicians from the Sahara to get their music heard, as Western rockers continue to be drawn towards this poetic music emanating from the sand dunes and rocky expanses.

Bossa nova, the Eternal Wave

Since its creation in the late 1950s, Bossa-nova has become an indispensable part of Brazilian music. The style’s strong evocative power won over artists from all around the world and earned recognition for many first-rate musicians whose works are now seen as classics.
