There’s no shortage of songwriters out there these days, ploughing rough paths on blacktops across America and beyond. Many position themselves as interesting, unique. Fresh and new. Mainly, the songwriter treads ground that’s been harvested for years. But from time to time, an artist emerges who shares a far away song, one who reaches beyond himself and treads a foreign place. And there finds not something new, but sameness. Connectedness. Oneness in an other. With Dugu Wolo, his first collection of original traditional-styled Malian Mande songs performed in the Bambara language, Athens, Georgia-based country folk and Americana singer/songwriter Adam Klein presents a moving record which will resonate with West African and worldwide listeners alike.
