    From the sumptuous koras (the West African harp) of Toumani Diabaté and Ballaké Sissoko to the acoustic guitar legends Baaba Maal and Mansour Seck, West Africa Unwired presents some of the most beautiful classics from the acoustic West Africa repertoire. Featuring bluesy sounds from Mali, Wodaabe music from the Sahelian savannah and Manding rhythms, this album features griots, musical giants and rising stars, who reveal the vitality of these timeless and exceptional songs.

    West Africa Unwired is being produced in collaboration with, and raising funds for Amnesty International.

    **** (four stars) 'A perfect introduction to a music which effortlessly and unselfconsciously mixes the traditional with the modern.' The Independent
