I want to tell you about two new albums by two late-African artists that came across my desk recently.
The first one is by the Malian musician Zani Diabaté and Les Heritiers. The CD is called "Tientalaw."
This was the last recording Diabaté made, in fact he died just a couple of weeks after this recording.
"Tientalaw" contains all the great grooves that made Diabaté famous.
The other album focuses on a really important artist from Guinea. His name is Sory Kandia Kouyaté.
His two-CD set is "La Voix De La Révolution."
Kouyaté died at the age of 44 in 1977.
Sory Kandia Kouyaté's voice is everything and few other singers can match him.
