Four years in the making, ‘Anoura / The Light’ sees the return of Malian guitar axeman Anansy Cisse providing another eagerly awaited dose of his trademark desert blues.
Drawing inspiration from the tumultuous upheaval in his homeland, Anansy offers a positive message in these songs of love, respect and hope for better times ahead.
The long-awaited follow-up to the critically acclaimed debut album ‘Mali Overdrive’ (TUGCD1079) released in 2014, Cisse’s powerful and distinctive guitar riffs give the album a drive and attitude like no other. Serves as a poignant reminder of the delicate political and social issues being faced by the people of Mali.
Featuring the late great soku (single-string fiddle) master Zoumana Tereta.
