Renowned for collaborations with his late mentor, Ali Farka Toure, and American blues musician Taj Mahal, Malian performer Toumani Diabate goes it alone on THE MANDE VARIATIONS, allowing full attention to fall on the gorgeous chiming sound of his kora, a harp-like West African instrument. Diabate pays tribute to his teacher on the dexterous "Ali Farka Toure," and serenely slows things down on "Elyne Road," always allowing emotion to shine even brighter than his stunning technical skill. One of Diabate's finest outings, this 2008 instrumental album is an ideal introduction to kora playing, and essential to any comprehensive collection of Malian music.Uncut (p.85) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[S]tately, intricate, meditative, rooted in a culture, but never afraid to transcend it."
