Written by Ali Farka Toure in Tamasheq (the Berber language of the Touareg, related to the Semitic languages and ancient Egyptian). Liner note: "I travel to see my love but I cannot enter her house. I sing or play so that she will hear me and will find a way to meet me. Then I must return home to wake early for work."


I heard this piece more than 15 years ago, it was playing at a local Tower Records and i immediately fell in love with it! Many years later i had the great pleasure to be a band member with a friend from Nigeria; needless to say i really fell for African styles of music!

Utterly wonderful - a real slow burner!
Listen at 5.30 when he declares - I am a Dry Cleaner - John Lee Hooker would have been proud of this!

Uncle you left me alone, you played a big part in the family, your little brother still can't accept your death because he's so shocked. We still miss you. May God grant you paradise

Mo Zing

May Allah have mercy on his soul. What a talented man he was!


You can really appreciate the collaboration between Ali Farka Touré and Ry Cooder here. I hear a great fusion between African and African-American musical traditions.
