Sound Travels gets back on track with a recap of the weekend addition to go with a new direction for the week; Malian Groove. Though I cannot compete with the Super Bowl, I hope some of you like the back cataloging of episodes, and want no one to miss the Sunday set, which was a high energy affair all about the electro-swing renaissance. Monday however is a contrast to that as I get going with some classic Malian grooves from artists like Ali Farka Toure and new music from Mdungu, Amadou & Mariam and King Kora to go with new remixes of Vieux Farka Toure's excellent new album.
