The son of late Malian bluesman Ali Farka Touré has worked his next-generation guitar magic with artists from Israel's Idan Raichel to Virginia's Dave Matthews. Here, in the wake of an anti-music fundamentalist coup in his country, he roots a set in Mali's rich acoustic traditional music. Which isn't to say it sounds foreign: See "Diack So," with spike fiddling that evokes Appalachia as much as Timbuktu.
