Including Crucial Vinyl from Salif Keita

Don clashes cultures and mixes new and classic music from around the world, plus he features another piece of Crucial Vinyl - Soro, released by Salif Keita in 1987.

The Don clashes cultures and mixes new and classic music from the UK, USA, Jamaica and beyond. He also features another piece of Crucial Vinyl from his album collection. This week it's Soro, released by Salif Keita in 1987.

Don says, "Known as the golden voice of Africa, Salif Keita was a direct descendant of the founder of the Malian Empire, which actually decreed he couldn't become a singer due to his royal heritage. He was also born with albinism which brought its own trials and tribulations.

Pretty impressive stuff, but what I think about most when I'm listening to this record is the fact that as a child he trained his voice by shouting at lions to keep themaway from the family's livestock in his native land of Mali - astounding.".
