les soeurs diabaté-donkili diarabi

 it is impossible for the blog to sail without  the passion
of donkili diarabi

very (I mean Very) beautiful love songs from  beloved  Sona Diabaté and  her sister Sayon
(and both sisters of the more famous petit Sekou "Bembeya" "diamond fingers" etc..  )
and their soul sister Mama
with Lenké Condé on guitar , Adama Condé  on bala  and Tchemsé Kanté on the bolon.
if  love has a voice ...
then this is it


  1. Wow!! I've been trying to find a copy of this at a sensible price for ages, but they sell for upwards of $50 on Amazon etc at the moment - I'd still like to own one but the opportunity to hear the music is a lovely prize. Thank you Nauma!

  2. Believe it or not,I've passed almost an entire summer listening just this one,my children still sing the songs by heart.It's one of THOSE records for me that brings back such good memories...
