Most fans of the blues believe it was born in the Mississippi delta shortly before 1900. They are definitively wrong. The blues had its roots in other forms of older black music that are traced to the music of West Africa. In that sense, Mali music constitutes the DNA of the blues and the griots can be identified as the direct ancestors of the rural bluesmen. Baba Sissoko is from Mali and he is the last undisputed griot alive. His voice evokes the lost vibe of the deepest and wildest side of West Africa; a magic land that he has largely crossed since his childhood singing and playing with his legendary grandfather, Djeli Baba Sissoko. With the help of the soulful voices of Djeli Mah Damba Koroba and Djana Sissoko, respectively his mother and his young daughter, he recorded “Three Gees”. They are the voices of the past, the present and the future living in the twilight zone where the Malian roots blooms into a new sound of hope and happiness. Also involved are Fernando "Bugaloo" Velez (The Dap-kings, Antibalas) on percussion, and the legendary Corey Harris on slide guitar. Somebody has coined the sound Bambara Mystic Soul, we dig it and really hope you enjoy listening to this album as much as we have enjoyed making it. Recorded and mixed by Luca Sapio and mastered by the Grammy winner Brian Lucey.
