Toumani Diabate, Mali’s most famous and revered kora player, writes about his vision and thinking behind the Symmetric Orchestra and his thinking behind each song. What struck me first, however, was the album cover. It appears so modern, completely unexpected from a group playing Malian music and African traditions. Diabate explains his reasoning for the naming of the Symmetric Orchestra as the balance between traditionalism and modernism. However, this album proves there may be more to that name, as it bridges the gap between Eastern and Western music. Prominently featured on the album is a horn section, full of saxophones, trumpets, and trombones. The energetic album closer Single brings acoustic guitar, electric bass and drum set as well, and it feels more like a big band jazz-funk song than a modern African composition.

Great album with highly arranged. With time you get to like all the songs.
