DJELI MAH DAMBA KOROBA & BABA SISSOKO ''BABA ET SA MAMAN'' (MALI,2013)
The roots of the Malian griot, an intense dialogue with his mother for a stunning effect! Baba et sa maman (Baba and his Mother) is more than just an album of traditional Malian music. It is a tribute to both history and to ones own roots: in this case, those of a great griot, master of the word, and son and grandson of those who for half a century have been at the head of a very special caste in Mali, as feared as they are venerated. It has taken several years to put together this magical collection of songs.
On the one hand, this was due to the actual geographical distance (Baba moved to Italy fi fteen years ago), while on the other hand, it was due to the intangible nature of feelings, which in large projects often follow no temporal rules or guidelines. purely radical acoustic magic, with no overdubs or studio tricks, only the sweet and austere voice of Djeli Mah Damba Koroba, accompanied by ancestral bambara chordophones and traditional percussion, all under the direction of the unique and inimitable master Baba Sissoko. A special album that, through the sounds of memory, uses a language whose perception is immediately comprehensible and familiar, regardless of the differences of place, class and culture.
