9/10 Brett Staff review, 20 January 2011

As everyone else was picking away at the review pile today I've been casting suspicious glances over, trying to spy if anyone had designs on this CD which I'd assumed must have something to do with Malian genius Ali Farka Toure but it appears it was all for nothing as there doesn't seem to be any relation whatsoever as far as I can tell.. Apart from them both belonging to The Brotherhood of Bangin' Guitarists anyway. Stylistically this has a gentler, more folky feel than the more heavily blues-influenced Ali but I'm afraid I'm far too ignorant on the specifics of west African music to be much of a guide as to exactly how it fits into the tradition there and compares to whatever else might be going on at the moment. All I can say for sure is that it's very beautiful and the warmth and intimacy of the setting (each take being a duet between friends recorded at Sidi's sister's house), which seeps through every note, is sure to have a soothing, comforting effect on the heart.
