In return, Keita composed "Mandjou", telling the history of the Mali people and praising Sekou Toure. This hauntingly beautiful song features Keita's typical sound of guitar, organ, and sax.
Keita's music blends together the traditional griot music of his Malian childhood with other West African influences from Guinea, the Ivory Coast, and Senegal, along with influences from Cuba, Spain, and Portugal, and an unmistakably overall Islamic sound. Keita's sound also includes traditional African instruments such as the kora, balafon, and djembe, often synthesized and sampled.
This program takes Salif back to Mali, and takes his audience to new heights by giving you a rare in-sight into the life and music of this remarkable artist.
