(Aug 16, 2014): Habib Koité & Bamada – Batoumambe

From the 2001 album, Baro.  Music from Mali.  The better known tune off the LP was “Cigarette Abana (Baro Version)”, and update of the 1995 version off the first album.  Batoumambe, I think, has a better flow.  Both Koité and band member Kélétigui Diabaté playing balafon, appeared on Bonnie Raitt’s 2002 LP, Silver Lining.
