Boubacar Traoré - Diarabi

Blues in a new light

Boubacar Traore is a national treasure. Known as Kar Kar in his native country of Mali - his style is sometimes a mirror image of Delta Blues OR visa versa. His story is deep and wide. I was inspired by a book titled "Mali Blues" which is basically a biography of his life. From the Kayes region of Mali (dry and dusty roads close to the border of Senegal) to the Djobli River - Kar Kar's music spans many decades in Mali. This song Diarabi (meaning my love in Bamanakan) is a traditional song. I think Kar Kar's version is the best. If you are inspired for more - check out "Miriama" and his work with Ali Farka Toure. Love to Papa Kar Kar
