I can play like this. I just don't feel like it.

Tomorrow I'm flying to Mali to interview Toumani Diabate. Maybe he's looking for a few pointers.


  1. Ask him to come and play in Dublin again

  2. he's alright, but he doesn't have your technique...

    I know it's none of my business David (other than as a Word subscriber), but do you think the typical Word reader would miss an article on this chap? To badly paraphrase Mrs Merton, what aspects of your analysis of his music will be enhanced by you flying away from the London drizzle and meeting him in the luxury of sun-baked Mali?

    Yours mischievously

  4. Wow, fantastic.

    The man is a genius. I have never felt so relaxed listening to music as I have when listening to his beautiful music.

    David, you persuaded me to buy his wonderful New Ancient Strings, and your link led me to Diabate and Danny Thompson on youtube. Great job. Editing/advising such as yours is what makes the internet worthwhile. Thanks
