Description

Donso is the result of a collaboration of four talented musicians from France and Mali who have skillfully brought together a fusion of traditional Malian music and electronica.

Produced by the group's keyboardist and programmer Pierre Antoine Grison (who also releases his own music on Ed Banger Records as Krazy Baldhead) the other three musicians are Malian vocalist Gedeon Papa Diarra, Guimba Kouyate on Guitars and Djele N'Goni (a traditional Malian string instrument) and Thomas Guillaume on percussion and Donso N'Goni. Also featured on the album are other top Malian musicians including Ballake Sissoko on Kora and keyboardist Cheick Thidiane Seck.

Donso's debut album is a well-rounded journey from the deep roots of Malian music to an exciting and melodic African electro-pop. Pierre-Antoine Grison, who produced the album in Paris along with one of France's most talented sound engineers Lucas Chauviere, has created a stunning blend that mixes traditional music from Mali with a fresh and modern sound that truly belongs to the 21st century.
