This is the second of three CDs intended to present the musical treasury of the Sambla-, Tusia- and Siamou-Diabates.

On this CD Daouda Diabate shows the finest pieces of the Tusia balafon-tradition. His stunning virtuosity has been a great attraction for his audience (and a nightmare for other balafonists) for decades. Some even believe that Daouda is one of the three bush-spirits who - according to an ancient legend - gave the balafon to the mankind... Sabwe Diabate plays the first accompaniment in the bass, Mamadou Diabate plays the second accompaniment and GoGardi Traore plays the dundun.
