I’m Listening To… Toumani Diabaté

toumaniI’m listening to The Mandé Variations by Toumani Diabaté at moment. I know ‘world music’ is a bit off-putting to a lot of people, but you ought to give this one a chance. I’m going to put you off even more by saying that TD is playing what is pretty much a huge harp. It is lovely stuff, though. Can I use the phrase ‘glittering cascades of sparkling notes’? Please? Suit yourself. Go and listen to the track ‘Elyne Road’ or download it or something. It’s really rather wonderful.
