Griot Gold

And the finest 'exotic' album of 2014, you may ask? That award easily goes to Tzenni by the amazing Mauritanian griot singer Noura Mint Seymali. That's her husband Jeiche Ould Chighaly on guitar by the way. Westernized, but not too much, which is a good thing of course. Here's a bit of proof.
