Title: Sekou "Diamond Fingers" Diabate
Post by: Henri on September 28, 2017, 02:33:08 pm
I am doing a lot of Mandingue shows lately.  When doors open, the clubs aren't full for a while as people filter in.  So, while I hook up my video feed and get a drink from the bar, I like to put on something long.  So, I've been going with Bembeya Jazz National's Montagne, which is 18:31 long.  Listening to this track so many nights, I've come to realize it's really a masterpiece, and that Sekou "Diamond Fingers" Diabate is, hands down, the greatest guitar player out of Africa ...ever.

The greatest ever? There were so many great ones. Perhaps it's a matter of taste, but that's a bold claim.
