Why you'll love it...

Ali Farka Touré was a Malian guitarist who blended the American blues with the music that birthed it: the music of West Africa. His catalog of LPs are masterclasses in guitar playing, in the diaspora of musical forms, and 1984's self-titled LP, known as The Red Album, is one of his finest. As dexterous as John Lee Hooker, singing plaintive blues songs, Ali Farka Touré ‎delivers a tour de force performance here—check his playing on "Cheri" especially—all played on an acoustic guitar. If you love African music and guitar mastery, you need to own this.
