Bonjour Scott.

goddamn, I look forward to 9:00am on Fridays
  9:06am DCE:

good morning!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:06am DCE:

no, I mean, GOOD MORNING!
Avatar 9:09am hamburger:

Good Morning - I'm guessing the people who've banned the music get to listen music themselves?
Avatar 9:10am Chris from DC:

So glad to get to Friday.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:16am Scott McDowell:

Hi everyone! Nice avatars.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:17am fred:

Good morning Scott and listeners. I'm not sure what it does, but I had to put Hipnosis in my favorite list
Avatar 9:18am pierre:

@Scott : what is the date of that map .?

@ fred : it creates a list on your profile, thus keeping you from writing all you favourite tunes onto post-it :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:18am DCE:

I think eventually all the starred tunes will be loaded directly into your brain--that's the plan, right?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:20am Andrew Waterloo:

@fred adding Hipnosis to my favourites was the first order of the day.

@ DCE : with Diane Kamikaze Fun Machine yesterday, it would be great !

@ Scott : thanks for the article.

Thanks for this Scott, beautiful sounds. Mali is in my thoughts today.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:25am G:

Hey, the French government has to do *something* with that new tax money they're getting. :-)

Hopefully the US won't get dragged into that like they did in some French colonial war in Asia back in the 60s. What was the name of the country again, need more caffeine... :-)
  9:25am Mark:

Yaala yaala, y'all. These math questions aren't that hard.

Great set. Is this all music of Mali? Just beautiful!

Went to see Ali Farka Toure years ago, with a crowd of Guineans. What a hoot!

@yayson and all: Thanks for all the nice images!
  10:12am jill:

this is a great show. Thanks for focusing on this. I've been lambasting my idiot friends on facebook who think the Lance Armstrong story is so important. Check out this article on the music scene in Mali today: http://www.dw.de/malis-musicians-fight-back-against-censorship/a-16530216
  10:14am Brian in Snowland:

Hello Scott, I was hoping to hear a show like this recently and here it is.

^ I'll second that sentiment ^

I recall the Simpsons episode where Bart was calling random countries. Homer was looking over the phone bill: ".... Burkina Faso? Disputed Zone?"
Avatar 10:32am other david:

^^ what DCE said, this is great.
  10:32am john:

Avatar 10:39am Flauri:

and no more math! :)
  10:40am βrian:

I read a blog once. It was a paperback.
  10:40am AZ Dave:

At a dinner in NY in 2011 for West African leaders, there was some low-key entertainment in one corner of the room during drinks. Moving in that direction to better listen, my jaw dropped when I saw that Toumani Diabate was the kora player. He noticed, and his broad smile became even broader. There was never an acknowledgement by the hosts that one of the world's top musicians was in our midst.
Avatar 10:42am KP:

Morning, Scott.
Avatar 10:43am KP:

Morning, Scott.
Avatar 10:54am pierre:

In this context, this music got a very particular feel.
What DCE said, thanks for playing this music.
  10:58am Brian in Snowland:

@AZ Dave We went to WOMAD over here in UK one year and Toumani was giving a kora workshop like we are going to be playing in the foreseeable. The thing was he was so down to earth and friendly. Lovely man.
Avatar 11:03am βrian:

I've always thought this piece was positively hallucinogenic. I never, ever tire of it.
  11:04am Brian in Snowland:

Ballake Sissoko had a new CD out next month called 'At Peace'. New Ancient Strings has a wonderful clean atmosphere.
Avatar 11:09am jdelz:

What a great feature show. I'll definitely be revisiting this one in the archives.

Hey KP, look at me! I think the issue was too big of a file. The pic I was trying to upload was taken with my wife's fancy camera.

Good morning Friendiverse!

Friendiverse, I now have the name of my 2013 premium.
