    The singer from Burkina Faso takes a traditional, acoustic approach to his music on Bamanankan. It's a measured disc with meditations of a number of topics from poverty to death, with plenty of stops -- political (in the personal and moral sense) and philosophical. Backed up by balafon, flute, bolon, and the sokou (a type of fiddle), Lassina Coulibaly weaves a very gentle magic. For the most part very positive and lullingly melodic, it jars at the end with the poetry, which ends up ruining the carefully created mood. Remove that, and you have something that fits perfectly into the tradition, with some excellent singing and superb instrumental work (kudos to the ensemble, Yan Kadi Faso, who do such a wonderful job), making for a warm, fulsome whole. ~ Chris Nickson
