Subject: RE: Obit: Ali Farka Toure, trad. African musician
I guess I'm surprised that so few people responded to this thread. Faure was an amazing musician and I wish he'd had a wider audience in the non-African world. His music was deeply rooted in the land and in an interview years ago I remember a discussion of the spirituality he expressed in it. Guest Van's remark about listening to do your ears and soul a favor was right on the mark. It's so engaging and soothing at the same time.
