Reviews about Djeli Moussa Diawara - Yasimika (Abidjan 1982) (2):
jorik
This has gotten so much play since I found it about 15 years ago. It's great to see it back in print, but it takes away some of the feeling that I've got such a rare and hard-to-find gem in my collection. Either way, I'll probably buy both new versions to see how such a masterful recording could possibly be re-mastered.If you haven't got this, I suggest buying it. I haven't heard any recording of kora music that tops this one.
Jorad
did you end up getting it? Is it worth tracking down when you have the 1988 LP?
