Format: 12" Vinyl

Fifth album by Malian ngoni maestro and the followup to the acclaimed 'Ba Power' (2015) which saw a more electric approach, complete with distortion and wah wah pedal. The sound on this new album is more rootsy and reconnects to the beginnings of Bassekou's solo career and his celebrated debut album 'Segu Blue' (2007). 'Miri' ("dream" or "contemplation" in the Bamana language) sees Bassekou in a somber, contemplative mood, reflecting about life, love, friendship, family and his country in a time of crisis. As always there is the intricate sound of Bassekou's virtuoso ngoni playing - and, ever the innovator of the ngoni, one of the album's stand out tracks, "Wele ni" sees him playing slide ngoni with a bottleneck. Guests include Habib Koite, Afel Bocoum, Abdoulaye Diabate and Michael League (Snarky Puppy, Bokante) amongst others.
