info 

Mamadou Kelly comes from Goundam and Niafunke in the heartland of Mali's Niger River Delta. Having played alongside its masters, Kelly and his group Ban kai Na bring a new sophistication to the desert blues genre. With his 2013 album Adibar (CLECD 7), Kelly stepped onto the international stage to present his own repertoire as soloist and band leader. He received accolades when he toured North America, performing at major festival and concert halls while recording this album. Kelly’s smooth vocals and deceptively effortless guitar playing quickly charm his audiences. Steeped in rich historical background, his lyrical style combined with Ban Kai Na’s virtuosic delivery makes it all sound so easy. Yet at the time of these recordings they had all just witnessed severe political unrest and social violence in Mali. It was a real presence during the sessions. You can hear it, the real source of the blues.
