Format: Audio CD
Wonderfully produced album brings a blend of traditional West African and Western music that is not too "westernised". The Horn and Saxophone arrangements are brilliant and it keeps the infectious rhythms and precussive instrumentation without any loss of its West African roots. The guitar work is brilliant (KOUYATE) A brilliantly revamped version of MANDJOU. AFRICA is so infectious in its beat. FOLON really full of emotion - The icing on the cake.

I first heard the haunting title track watching a movie on the independent film channel - La Vie sur Terre.. That was my first exposure to Salif Keïta in the US, and I decided to take a chance on the CD. I enjoy every track, although it does tend to be a little heavy on the bass and brass than I would prefer.. but Salif's voice is amazing.. it took a trip to Mali for me to recognize the beauty in Malian rhythms and melodies, now I am trying to introduce everyone here the music. This has my highest recommendation for anyone who just doesn't quite feel like Backstreet pop or Ms. Aguilera does it for them.

"Soro" might have been the trendsetter, but this release is Salif's classic! I don't know what kind of juju was happening in the studio during the making of the this one, but all the elements are right on. A near perfect recording--and an absolute MUST HAVE for fans of Salif and Afro-pop in general.

Salif Keita is a god in his own country, we puny Americans really have no musicians to compare with his status, (maybe John Lennon in his heyday). Folon is a great reminder of why hes such a god. On Folon, polyrythyms swim, soar and both permeate and provide a subtle background, guitars call, then respond locking in with eachother with incredible groove savvy smoothness and Keita, now nearing his golden years sounds passionate, intense and downright amazing. Who cares if you don't speak French,the sounds will still move you. And while some may consider the weird american guitar effects and synthesizers selling out, it still sounds strangely beautiful, this is a must have for any music fan who wants their mind blown.

This is one of my favorite CDs of all time. All of the songs are incredible...particularly what must be everyone's favorite, "Africa." Salif is King! A be se ka donke kosebe (he can really sing)! Really the best of any world music/African music I have heard! Order it!

Anyone who can appreciate good music, can appreciate and enjoy Mr. Salif Keita! he is simply dynamic as a musician ...he's my favorite. Even if you can't understand a word, you will still defiantely be able to "feel" him!. That's what music is all about!
