Kasse Made Diabate! From an old album of his. He just came out with a new one with some heavy hitters; Ballake Sissoko(kora instrument), Vincent Segal(cello), Lansine Kouyate(Balafon), and Badje Tounkara(N'goni). I hope they make their way to S.F.
Brandon and I got the chance to experience Ballake and Vincent a while back in Santa Cruz. They played so quietly without amplification. It made your ears more keen to listening. You just closed your eyes and took it all in.
Brandon's also been playing a whole lot of the Blues lately. I appreciate him. To such an exponential degree. For sharing his admiration of music. I don't know of anyone who inspires me more. Will post some inspirational sounds soon.
