The Librarian

Happy ears

I do love finding wonderful new (to me, anyway) recordings when I go a-browsing ... getting to be a challenging task, too, as the non-"pop/rock" sections of most music stores seem to shrinking steadily. But yesterday was a successful day and right now I am on first listen of Vieux Farka Touré's self-titled debut album. Lovely lovely stuff ... I shall be looking forward to hearing more of his music. ☺♪♫

P.S. There's an easy-to-miss sample track in the bottom left of Touré's website, should you want to have a listen.

P.P.S. And, thanks to the liner notes, I've a couple of new links for those who also like their musical horizons very broad: AfroPop Worldwide and RadioMultiKulti. Enjoy!
