postcard from bamako

The OMM magazine (see post below) came with lots of meaty stuff, including a piece investigating the alleged link between Rap Music and the recent African immigrants riots in Paris. There are reviews of Damian Marley's gig in Las Vegas and 'The Cellar Door Sessions' - new Miles Davis issue CDs. There's also an article tracing back to the birth of Punk with the arrival of the Sex Pistols in 1976 (haven't read that yet!). Then there is the above, a delightful 'postcard' of Malian music. Ali Farka Toure, Tinariwen, Salif Keita, Oumou Sangare and others are mentioned - as encountered in their own backyard, literally.
