Driving hypnotic drums. Deep guttural chants.
I wasn’t sure what I was listening to, but I was loving every sound and rhythm emanating from my sister’s CD player as we drove to our destination.
When the chorus came on, I strained to make out the words.
“Bullet?…Bullet The Blue Sky? What is this?!“.
Knowing I was a viral U2 fan, she’d purposely popped in this CD.
With a captivating rendition of my favorite U2 tune, “Mysterious Ways” by world renown Beninese songstress, Angelique Kidjo to the percussion laden version of “Bullet The Blue Sky” by Vieux Farka Touré from Mali, every track on this album keeps you guessing how each song transforms.
