    Hi everybody,

    I thought fans of African music would find this interesting. It's about Salif Keita, a cool musician from Mali. I receive interesting e-mails about all kinds of music, and I find this fitting. The new CD just debuted on the World Music chart, and BILLBOARD gave it a rave review. See the tourdates listed below.

    Known around the world as "The Golden Voice of Africa," Salif Keita is one of the premier artists to emerge from Mali over the last several decades, winning unanimous praise from fans and critics alike. Blending traditional styles of his West African homeland with influences from Cuba, Spain, Portugal and the Middle East, Salif Keita has now returned with a rare fusion of inspiring words and melodies on his entirely new acoustic CD, Moffou. Incorporating guitar, organ, and saxophone with traditional African instruments including the kora, balafon, and djembe, Keita’s new album is his most enchanting and exquisite work yet. His first recording for Decca Records/Universal Classics Group, Moffou was released on September 17, 2002.

    Salif Keita @ Royce Hall/UCLA Nov 2

    Just wanted to add that Salif Keita's tour will take him to Royce Hall in Los Angeles on the UCLA campus. Show is at 8pm and I noticed tiks are $20-35, but call 310-825-2101 or I think you can order from www.uclalive.com

    Definitely a great concert. Salif Keita's only SoCal performance.
