    Seems that it took me just 3 listens to love this track back in 2009. I recently re-discovered this track, so grateful to Vieux Farka Toure for bringing me back to this piece of music.

    ~Toumani Diabaté on “Elyne Road”:“This is my own composition...the melody inspired by...a recording I heard in London in the 80s..as I listened, I heard a Bambara phrase in my head that fit the melody:‘You are as beautiful as the honey that sweetens the porridge’...the tune stayed in my head for a long time... I had to turn it into a kora piece...and decided to call it Elyne Road, after a street in London where I played it...one memorable night.” from: http://thetimbuktuproject.com/?p=3259

    a spiritual high...the soul of the kora is deep...every note sings the history of the land...and of the people...in one phrase i hear my name...and if you listen carefully...you may hear yours...
