This is a very short post. There is more than enough information about Ali 'Farka' Touré on the web (here or here or here), and there will be plenty of other occasions to write about this interesting artist from Niafunké, Mali.
This is the second of two wonderful cassettes released in 1988 and produced by Mahmoudou Maïga in Bamako. The first I posted earlier. Like the first volume, the second volume features Ali on electric guitar.
