UK US

More than a decade and a half after his first international solo release, Djessou Mory KantÚ returns with a collection of beautifully crafted instrumentals. Rooted in the Maninka traditions of Guinea and Mali, River Strings flows with rich melodic interchanges; like the Niger River which inspired these recordings. Younger brother of Les Ambassadeurs' guitarist KantÚ Manfila and regular guitarist for such renowned singers as Salif Ke´ta and SÚkouba Bambino, Djessou Mory KantÚ's musicianship is gentle and understated and shows just why he is the guitarist to whom others turn.

'There are no vocals, no stunt guitar treatments, nothing to buttonhole the listener apart from the sense of all-rightness generated by faultless layers of guitar playing' (fRoots)

'This is one of the most exquisite African guitar albums in a long time' ★★★★ (Evening Standard)
