From Aurgasm we can listen to Toumani Diabete’s Symmetric Orchestra.
From the liner notes:
The Symmetric Orchestra reflects the spirit of Mali’s new democracy since 1992— a spirit of equality, and creativity. There’s a public in Mali today that loves traditional music — griot music — but not the griot milieu. With the Symmetric, they feel free to enjoy this music without the obligations of tradition. And this gives us the freedom to present the tradition in new ways.
There are two beautiful songs to listen to if you follow the link:
