Reviewed 2010-11-30 
Mali meets Cuba in this release that brings superstars from both countries together. Representing Team Cuba: Eliades Ochoa (from the Buena Vista Social Club), from Mali: Toumani Diabate. Plus about a half dozen others. Koras and guitars. Hip multi-cultural percussion. Delicious, jazzy, warm, great stuff. Some songs obviously more Cuban. Others equally more African. Great musical mash-up.

1. Relaxed midtempo instrumental blend of two cultures.
*2. Soaring vocals in a relaxed and sensual guajira.
*3. Mid/upbeat and delicious w/wonderful vocals & guitars.
*4. Bright and swaying upbeat wiggle. Extra goodness.
5. Midtempo, relaxed, soaring vocals and tight strings.
*6. Mid/upbeat Malian vocals w/a tight arrangment.
7. Gentle guitar solo. Sweet & much too short.
*8. Upbeat and busy w/great blend of perc & strings. Yum!
*9. Sweet & playful mid/upbeat jam w/hip perc & warm vox.
10. Soaring vocals, warm strings. Midtempo & sophisticated.
*11. Relaxed vocals, good use of chorus, sweet percussion.
12. Playful mid/upbeat w/lots of energy and a nice sense of style.
*13. Midtempo w/some extra good African vocals.
14. The classic tune gets a gentle Malian makeover.
