"I have all the spirits. I work the spirits and I work with the spirits."
-Ali Farka Toure

Shabava was studio today, playing Persian/Flamenco tunes. And today is the birthday of Salif Keita, making it the perfect day to explore the abundant music of his homeland. Mali has produced an astonishing array of musicians, including Keita and the late Ali Farka Toure, whose life we also celebrated today.

See Spin the Globe's CD Reviews for reviews and info on new releases. Most of the music played on Spin the Globe is available on CD at cdRoots.com or CD Universe or via mp3 downloads at the Calabash.
