Toumani Diabaté - Cantelowes live at El Real Alcazar
Don MacKinnon

Cascading Kora Served Neat

Gail is the true expert here, but I thought I'd kick things off with this video that I love because it shows Toumani Diabate playing so purely, just himself, creating cascading waves and runs, tiny micro-melodies, gather like fractalled eddies, spinning and merging into larger patterns. Simple and kaleidoscopic. Spellbinding.

I also love how they show him arrive in horse drawn carriage. There's annoying jump cuts until 1:04 when it just holds the shot on Diabate.
