Toumani Diabate @ Stuyvesant High (pic) ++ SHOW TODAY

I wouldn’t call their music life-changing or anything, but I love it on CD, it sounded great live, and you should definitely go check out Toumani Diabate @ Metrotech during lunch today if can. It’s not every day he and his kora make it out of Mali. In fact, as TOUMANI HIMSELF TOLD US at least two times during last night’s show (July 18, 2007) at (the rain location) Stuyvesant High School, we are very luckly to be in the presence of a kora master such as Toumani Diabate. Like a lot of “world music”, the show was as much a cultural experience as it was a musical experience. That’s especially true when you have entertainers as outgoing as Toumani and crew. I’ll post more about that, and more pics later, but for now here’s one of Toumani explaining to the crowd what a kora is
