Mali legendary musician Boubacar Traoré performing ''Diarabi'' (only audio). Traoré, also known as ''Kar Kar'', gained popularity with his ''Mali Twist'' in the early 1960's. He has had a very unique and exciting life story which has been picturized in the movie "Je Chanterai Pour Toi" by Jacques Sarasin. If you are interested, you can also check out a recent rendition of this song by the swedish band ''Goat'' on their album ''World Music'' which I also quite enjoy.
