The attraction of the duet Finkel/Diabate lies within the mixture of two totally different cultures, which are connected playfully, without disrespecting traditions.
Jazzy Saxophone tunes harmonise with traditional sounds of the Sambla, an ethnic group from Burkina Faso, which Mamadou Diabate is also part of. Sigi Finkel and Mamadou Diabate form a congenial duet. They inspire and take care of each other, and make music with overwhelming delight. Art and sensuality are connected by them in a wonderful way, based on African tradition.(Herbert Uhlir, Ö1 Jazzredaktion)
