River Strings: Maninka Guitar ()
cdRoots Code: st-1124

The producers say:
More than a decade and a half after his first international solo release, Djessou Mory Kanté returns with a collection of beautifully crafted instrumentals. Rooted in the Maninka traditions of Guinea and Mali, River Strings flows with rich melodic interchanges; like the Niger River which inspired these recordings. Younger brother of Les Ambassadeurs' guitarist Kanté Manfila and regular guitarist for such renowned singers as Salif Keďta and Sékouba Bambino, Djessou Mory Kanté's musicianship is gentle and understated and shows just why he is the guitarist to whom others turn.

fRoots says: 'There are no vocals, no stunt guitar treatments, nothing to buttonhole the listener apart from the sense of all-rightness generated by faultless layers of guitar playing' (fRoots)

Please note!
Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
