Afternoon Afrobeat (#1): "Gomni" by Ali Farka Toure



I just wanted to take a minute to recognize probably one of the most brilliant Africa traditional artists known to man: Ali Farka Toure. This Malian sure as hell knows how to make some magic with guitar strings. 

I've got ridiculous deadlines ahead of me this week and I should probably be having a panic attack right about now, but with Ali's music and ample amounts of coffee, I feel capable of conquering the world (in a non-colonist sense, that is). 

And needless to say, his tunes are getting me stoked to return to the continent of music in only 7 days.
