“Don’t try to separate Cuba from Mali; after generations of cross-pollination, this musical heritage has finally flowered into this single sublime album” saysSoundRoots.org of AfroCubism, the long delayed project from producer Nick Gold. Led by World Music icons Eliades Ochoa and Toumani Diabaté, AfroCubism is a collaboration between some of Cuba and Mali’s most talented musicians, and Press and Critics from around the globe are taking note of this incredible new album. The Boston Globe says the record is “a thrilling and impeccably produced conversation between two musics that have a great deal to do with each other in the first place” and the New Jersey Star-Ledger says “The results are about as perfect a blend as one can get.”
