* new link uploaded * MYSTERE JAZZ DE TOMBOUCTOU - Mali Kunkan 1977

Astonishingly good and supremely rare ethnic Mali afrobeat-jazz wonder! Recently sold on ebay for $1130.00 and is basically one of the holy grails of ethnic African music LPs. In the same sphere of other-worldy beauty and excellence as Orchestre de Mopti and Super Temteba Jazz Band among others. Recently comped on African Pearls - Mali 70. Which has a number of really good Malian songs. Fascinating and hypnotic poly-rhythms and transmorphous cycles of bending guitar notes with stacatto horns that are equally free jazz and traditional highlife music. I share this with much gratitude, and because it is not available anywhere else: it needs to be heard. Pressed in France, recorded in Mali, from 1977, very few pressings known.

Enjoy this wonder and treasure it, and please don't share on any mass fileshare programs etc

yeah, the link seems to be to something really funky, it shapeshifts before you can hit the download button.

Just wanted to let you know that I really dig your blog. So many things to sink your ears into that it makes my head spin. It appears that the Divshare link is not working properly. When you click on the link, it goes to a Divshare page, but then it acts very wonky and never brings up the link. It would be greatly appreciated if you re-upped this as I missed it the first time around.

Best, Kevin
