Djelimady Tounkara - Sigui (2001) Retail CD
Sigui is the debut solo album by the Malian guitarist Djelimady Tounkara, but from the supreme accomplishment of his performances and from his puzzlingly eclectic sound-world, you'd never guess either of these things. Some of his solos could be by the Spanish classical guitarist Segovia, while some of the vocals recall flamenco timbres with such vividness that you could almost imagine yourself in the gardens of the Alhambra. Djelimady, who cut his teeth as a member of Pioneer Jazz in the 1960s, is lead guitarist of the Super Rail Band, which performs nightly at the Buffet Hotel de la Gare in Bamakomore…. Here you get their driving rhythms and warm full sound, in a medley of songs which have been passed down the generations by the griot musicians who gave Djelimady his grounding. Interludes permeated by the ngoni lute alternate with virtuoso guitar riffs and with a marvellous bunch of singers including the leader's daughter Fatoumata. --Michael Church
