‘Coucou’ – Djessou Mory Kanté

river stringsWe may not believe that ‘River Strings‘ (Sterns Music) is just the second international sophomore album of Djessou Mory Konté. After his 1998 released debut LP ‘Guitar Seche‘ the brother of famous Kante Manfila (Les Ambassadeur) has now released a brilliantly harmonious instrumental album, embedded in the rich Maninka music culture.
