Ali Farka Touré & Toumani Diabaté: Ali & Toumani

Review from

The second and final album pairing the late Malian guitar virtuoso Ali Farka Tour‚ and kora master Toumani Diabat‚ . Recorded over three afternoons at London's Livingston Studios in 2005, with contributions from the late Orlando "Cachaito" Lopez (Buena Vista Social Club) on bass, Ali and Toumani is the follow-up to the duo's Grammy Award-winning In The Heart Of The Moon. This album was produced by Nick Gold and recorded by Jerry Boys, the same production team behind the collaboration's first effort. It is the also the last album recorded by Ali Farka Tour, who passed away on March 7, 2006.
