Rail Band

Formed in 1970 and funded by Mali's Ministry of Information, the Rail Band was the top big band in the country for quite a long time. They were (and still are) the house band at the Buffet de La Gare in Bamako, taking traditional instruments and music and tailoring them for a modern, urban pop audience. The band became a training ground for Mali's top musicians, and many future stars passed through its ranks, such as Salif Keita and Mory Kante. It was one of the few big bands to survive the recession of the 1980s, thanks to government aid, an international reputation, and the public's regard for it as a cultural institution. Interest in the band surged after Keita and Kante's international breakthroughs, further ensuring its survival and success. ~ Steve Huey

Yeah, it's very beautiful. There is a deep sincerity here that really moves the soul. I would like to hope that maybe someday these brothers might get a chance to read some of the things that people like us are saying about them. Insha'llah.

The guitar intro on "Wale Numa Lombaliya" is absolutely stunning. Its got pure sunshine up in there. Its the authentic real deal that inspired so many American artist (David Byrne, Paul Simon, Sim Redmond Band, etc.). Much Respect!
