Mississippi to Mali (2003)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Release Date: Nov 18, 2003; Lead Performance: Corey Harris

Blues guitarist Harris has become a cultural emissary, his wandering muse a bridge that links the vernacular music of the First and Third Worlds. This riveting CD features artists from the musical capitals of its title (Ali Farka Toure, Bobby Rush, Sam Carr) in a summit meeting where the boundaries dissolve in the melting pot.
