Salimata Diabate's music contains elements of Senegalese, Guinean and even Malian tradition and that's not a coincidence; Diabate was born in Dakar, but already started to travel the world with the Ballet National de Guinée at the age of ten! 'Kolokagni' is reminiscent of the Cuban influenced music Salif Keita and Baaba Maal turned out when they were both still signed with Island Records. If you appreciated that vibe at the time, you will definitely also enjoy 'Kolokagni'. One of the best West-African albums we had the pleasure listening to recently.
