Review:

?Banning?s book presents a riveting, richly illustrative and insightful look into his extraordinary seven month?s journey deep into the heart of Mali?s music scene...With the explosion and popularity and appetite for world music, Banning?s book is one of a kind primer on just how deep the connection runs between West African cultural traditions and nearly all of our Western popular music. I can?t remember when a Westerner has been able to dive so deeply into another culture with such soulful results? Bonnie Raitt ?One of the best can?t -put-it-down roots music reads in recent memory? Folk Roots ?An essential and extraordinary read for anyone interested in Africa and world music? World Music
