Boubacar Traore – Boubacar Traore And His Guitar

Guitar player and singer from the West African nation of Mali. He became popular first in the 1960′s and fell out of favor in the 70′s and 80′s making something of a comeback in the 90′s when he resurfaced in France. Hard working guy who taught himself how to play guitar and never got any money for his music until much later in life. The sounds here are very mellow and beautiful. His style blends West African folk with Middle Eastern rhythms. Its the first record I listened to in 2014. Beautiful, soulful, sad, and lovely.
