Wow, you'll never get tired of this one. Even though there are no chord progressions as you would expect to find in western music the textures and arangements are just beautifual and haunting -- also, I wish I could speak his language so I could understand the lyrics. Seck's guitar blends perfectly with Cissoko's Kora and the vocals are stunning. Think of this as African acoustic folk music.
