"Malian superstar Boubacar Traore is the undisputed king of the African blues. Only his voice can blend the Niger and Mississippi river styles with such moving authenticity. His unique, inimitable, self-taught guitar technique owes a great deal to his kora influences, but its shades and phrasing also show influences of legendary American bluesmen such as Blind Willie McTell, Robert Johnson and Muddy Waters. Mali Denhou, Traore's first new release in six years, finds the great singer on top form, earthy and biting. The album features stellar harp playing by Frenchman Vincent Bucher."
