Mamadou Kelly - Politiki


Mamadou Kelly transforms desert blues with modern sophistication. Mamadou Kelly's third album, Politiki brings Kelly and his group BanKaiNa together with Grammy-winning steel guitarist Cindy Cashdollar, drummer Susie Ibarra, bassist Jake Silver, and guitarist Dan Littleton, into a dynamic fusion. Backing musicians for such Malian greats as Ali Farka Toure and Afel Bocoum, Kelly and BanKaiNa push traditions into new waves of sound from the Sahara.
