"Malian guitarist Djelimady Tounkara is one of Africa's finest musicians. He was one of the founders of the legendary Super Rail Band, a group that launched the careers of such greats as Salif Keita and Mory Kante. Solon Kono, his second solo recording, features Tounkara giving free reign to his prodigious improvisational talents. He is accompanied by Samba Diabate on guitar, Mariam 'M'Bau' Tounkara, Mariam 'Djodjo' Diabate, Samba Sissoko and Mountaga Diabate on vocals. Originally released in 2005 on Marabi, Lusafrica's reissue of this, his best solo album to date, is particularly welcome."
