Bluesman Eric Bibb is the latest in a succession of American musicians to get his passport stamped in Mali since Ry Cooder and the late Ali Farka Toure won the Grammy for Best World Music Recording in 1994. Bibbs fine collaboration with Malian Habib Koite, Brothers in Bamako, stands up well next to Cooder and Toures Talking Timbuktu; Mali seems to be undergoing something of a musical renaissance despite the countrys grinding poverty and political unrest. Bibb and Koites effort is a mix of traditional African music, folk, gospel and blues offerings, sung in various languages, including some English. The album works well as a showcase for the talents and versatile styles of Bibb and Koite.
