DJ Tom Schnabel Pays Tribute to Two Late African Artists

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.
