Last seen pitting himself against Ali Farka Touré on the wonderful 'Ali and Toumani' record, this time Malian kora legend Diabaté has been collaborating with Brazilian songwriter and poet Antunes and rock guitarist Scandurra for a set (captured on 2012's 'A Curva Da Cintura') that's sometimes delicately bluesy, sometimes complex and intense. In support, vocalist and cuatro player Luzmira Zerpa's ensemble blend traditional Venezuelan folk and calypso with Afro-Latin percussion, flute and electric guitar.
