"Solo instrumentals from a real griot, another kora virtuoso from the Diabate family of Mali. Djibril is nephew (and student of) Toumani Diabate. An absolute virtuoso, he takes the kora playing a step further, but on the other hand he is deeply rooted in the Malian culture. His interpretations of traditional Griot pieces, played with great dexterity, show his unique individual style, but the stories and sagas he tells with it, are centuries old and this way musically preserved. The ten songs on the CD are recorded at two of Djibril's visits to Europe." (label info)
