‘In The Heart Of The Moon:

‘In the Heart of the Moon’ is an inspired collaboration from two of Malian music’s most important artists, guitarist Ali Farka Touré and kora player Toumani Diabaté. Although they originally planned to duet on just one track, their creativity could not be contained, and a complete album’s worth of new material was recorded. There were no rehearsals, and performances were improvised from repertoire familiar to both men. With an electric atmosphere that was almost palpable, the album was recorded in three 2 hour sessions over consecutive days with a mobile studio at the Hotel Mandé, on the banks of the Niger River in Bamako, Mali.

Ali Farka Touré, known internationally as the king of the desert blues, developed his unique guitar style from the Songhai and Peul traditions of his home in Northern Mali. Toumani Diabaté, acknowledged as the finest kora player in the world, is a master of the centuries old Mandinka griot traditions. Together they make a sublime pairing. The recordings also feature subtle contributions from Ry Cooder on kawai piano & ripley guitar, Sekou Kanté and Cachaíto López on bass, Joachim Cooder and Olalekan Babalola on percussion.
