Bill Frisell & Djelimady Tounkara

One of the best perks that comes from talking to superb musicians about practice is when they tell me about musicians they admire. When Sona Jobarteh talked about practice, she listed these musicians:  Ballake Cissokho (Kora), Kasse Mady Diabate (Singer), Sekouba Bambino (Singer), and Djelimady Tounkara (Guitarist)

I’ve barely started checking them out and already, I’m entranced. I hope you will be, too. Here’s a tranquil little gem, Uele. It’s from a 2004 London performance. Playing are:

Djelimady Tounkara (guitar)
Bill Frisell (guitar)
Greg Leisz (steel guitar)
Jenny Scheinman (violin)
Sidiki Camara (percussion)
