Cleansing the undertaking this evening, so to speak, with the amazing voice of Salif Keita (interview) The track's called Folon. (This version has subtitles translating the words too, though I would rather just listen to the voice, even without understanding what he is saying.)
Next is Cape Verde's Cesaria Evora - the Queen of mornas - singing Mar de Canal.
And last but not least, one group that I hope to see live some day - Tinariwen, playing here with Carlos Santana!
Lots of music from Africa on idamawatu's channel on youtube.
Music cleanses the understanding; inspires it, and lifts it into a realm which it would not reach if it were left to itself. ~Henry Ward Beecher
There's music in the sighing of a reed;
There's music in the gushing of a rill;
There's music in all things, if men had ears:
Their earth is but an echo of the spheres.
