Tamara Turner, CD Baby


Kone produces the highest quality African pop fusion, bringing together the traditional sounds of the motherland with western approaches to production and instrumentation. This multi-faceted, multi-talented man splits his time between roles as an artistic director, dancer, choreographer, acrobat, fire-eater and multi-instrumentalist, having mastered the doundoun, djembe, balafon, atougblan, castanets, ahoco, shekere, ark and flute, Drawing from an immense tradition of knowledge and wisdom, recognized internationally, Kone leads and delivers an oustanding, electrifying ensemble that is absolutely a must-hear for folk and world music fans as well as ethnomusicologists. From start to finish, this album buoys the spirit.

Excellent CD. The beats and vocals reach down into the soul. The essence of rythym is all in there. All the tracks are good, but, I have played the track, "Kietio", probably a hundred times since buying this CD recently, and am still amazed at the rythmic intricacy (yet simplicity) of it. The call and response on "Bayaga" is also beautiful and enchanting. This one stays in my player. It stirs and relaxes the soul.
