Antunes, Scadurra & Diabaté

A Curva Da Cintura ****
Import CD (Mais Um Discos 008CD (OS6)), Released 2012;
Editor's Pick:
Rio’s Back2Black African heritage music festival brought Malian kora player Toumani Diabaté together with Brazilian rock heroes Arnaldo Antunes and Edgard Scandurra in 2010: their collaborative album of thoughtful fusion arrives just in time for the first B2B festival in London.
Diabaté’s son Sidiki takes on kora duties on the livelier tracks; his ability to keep up with Scandurra’s electric guitar boosts opener Cê Não Vai Me Acompanhar and the hectic, Arabic/flamenco-tinged Cara.
Ir, Mão’s incantatory blast of raw blues and the curveball version of Serge Gainsbourg’s Elisa (renamed Meu Cabelo) add different textures.
Most affecting, though, is the version of Diabaté’s Kaira, a song infused with huge importance by his father (a Malian music legend): this incarnation has touching lyrics about the power of music to effect change and gorgeous backing vocals from Diabaté’s sister-in-law Safiatou. Psych-blues-rock closer Bamako’s Blues, meanwhile, blows the roof off. metro.co.uk (metro.uk.com, 2012-06-29)
