Toumani Diabate Recording For World Circuit

London, UK – World Circuit announced recently that it is working with Malian kora virtuoso Toumani Diabate. Widely regarded as one of the world’s greatest kora player, Toumani has been responsible for bringing the instrument to audiences around the globe. Through his work with celebrated African artists such as Salif Keita, Ali Farka Toure and Oumou Sangare; combined with high profile collaborations like the album Kulanjan with blues legend Taj Mahal, Toumani richly deserves his status as a world class artist. Asked on his thoughts of Toumani, World Circuit’s Nick Gold recently said: “Toumani Diabate is the holder of the torch for one of the world’s most breathtakingly beautiful art forms. This is a music that has been nurtured and revered for centuries, and Toumani, a true virtuoso and master of his art, produces a music in which this noble history is both reaffirmed and enabled to connect with a contemporary audience with heart-stopping and uplifting spirituality.”
