    Toumani & Sidiki Diabaté's "Toumani & Sidiki" Among Best Albums of 2014 So Far (LA Times)
    Youri Lenquette

    Toumani & Sidiki, the new father-and-son recording from kora master Toumani Diabaté and his son Sidiki, has been named one of the Best Albums of 2014 So Far by Los Angeles Times music critic Randall Roberts. "It’s a beguiling sound, and when two geniuses bridge generations, you can hear echoes of a continuum stretching back centuries," says Roberts in his best-of list. 

    In a full review of Toumani & Sidiki from earlier this month, Roberts calls the album "a mesmerizing listen from first to last," on which the father-and-son duo "offers breathtaking synchronized sound." Read the complete review at latimes.com.

    To pick up Toumani & Sidiki in North America, head to iTunes or the Nonesuch Store, where CD and vinyl orders include a download of the complete album at checkout; the album is also available to purchase there as MP3 and FLAC lossless files.

    Toumani and Sidiki Diabaté will tour the United States this fall; for details, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.
