by Moussa Diakite

After an absence of 21 years Moussa has returned to his roots in Mali to record the wonderful Doncomodja, in Bamako. Along with his Australian rhythm section,  Ben Kidson and Simon Olsen they were joined by some of Moussa's contemporaries who have helped define the magical sound of Mali, including the internationally acclaimed; Djelimady TouncaraToumani Diabate and Bassekou Kouyate etc.  Mixed and mastered in Paris, France, distributed by the Planet Company - MGM, Doncomodja is a remarkable achievement.

The CD is for sale now from our website shop and can also be purchased digitally from:

Tony Hillier, The Australian - Four Stars.

"(Toumani) Diabate pushes the guitarist to solo heaven in Miniamba"; "Diakite's inspired guitar playing and (Mountaga) Diabate's soulful singing prove a winning combination in Siran Counteh.";  "All tracks on an album that exhibits admirable variety are expertly stoked by the band leader’s super-tight Sydney engine-room, who blend brilliantly with these West African all-stars."
