A Curva Da Cintura : 12/4/13

A Curva Da Cintura : 12/4/13

Toumani Diabaté invited Brazilian songwriter and poet Arnaldo Antunes and guitar-hero Edgard Scandurra to Mali to record with him following a collaboration at the 2010 edition of the Brazilian festival Back2Black in Rio de Janeiro. Arnaldo and Edgard arrived in Mali in April 2011 with a collection of songs they had written together. With the Malian musicians they combined rock ‘n’ roll, African roots and blues to create an uplifting Afro-Brazilian fusion that celebrates the spirit of collaboration and connects Mali and Brazil in a way that blurs geographical and musical boundaries.

Toumani’s sublime kora playing is the perfect contrast to Arnaldo’s sombre almost mechanical voice and adds a poignancy to ballads such as ‘Grao de chaos’, ‘Psiu’ and Toumani’s composition ‘Kaira’.
