Lobi Traoré: Segou [Cobalt, 1996]
Like his benefactor and cameo sideman Ali Farka Touré, Traoré is a Malian John Lee Hooker fan. Only he's faster and tighter. And he works with three drummers all the time. And he lets in several second guitarists, none of them Ry Cooder. And although I don't find them in the credits, I swear there are birds backing him on one cut. Supposedly he has something to do with the blues. I hear Wassoulou circle games myself.
