This is rapidly becoming one of my favorite CDs. I moved to Chicago a few years ago and have been delving into blues music from the electric blues of my new home down to the old style acoustic blues from the Deep South. But this CD is a revelation to me.

I knew intellectually that music does not exist in a vacuum and that the roots of the blues extend beyond this country, but it is another thing entirely to hear how well African musicians, instruments, and styles blend into it.

My personal favorite tracks are "Ni Koh Bedy" by Mali Latino (a group that I simply must track down after reading about them in the liner notes), "Camel Shuffle" by Amar Sundy, "Mali" by Kalaban Coura, "Djigi" by Issa Bagayogo, and "Groove in G" by Playing for Change. But truthfully, there is not a bad track in the bunch.

I highly recommend this collection to anyone who enjoys musical explorations, the blues, or Malian music.

The Blues did not just appear out of nowhere. Not only that it has bounced back and forth from America to Africa and back several times as styles and technology has changed. Putumayo's African Blues is a great example of that inspiration and influence that has occured since early in the last century.

I bought this on a whim (being a lover of blues) and the more I listen to it the more I'm becoming addicted to it. Very relaxing and refreshing and I love the instrumentation... a nice change from straight guitar and drums
. Highly recommended.

This CD is great for people who like Blues and latin music. I don't have 5 more words about this album.
