African Music top 10 CDs for 2009

The latest Africa Focus bulletin, countains a list of the top 10 African music CDs, according to Afropop. For those of you who have not seen them yet, but are interested, I thought I’d share them with you.
I have not listened to all of them but the ones I have – The Very Best’s «The Warm Heart of Africa», Bela Fleck’s «Throw Down Your Heart», and Kaleed’s «Liberté» are wonderful…
If you click here you can go to the Africa Focus website with the full list (plus last year’s top 10 and more suggestion) and links to Amazon, where you can buy them – doing it this way you contribute to Africa Focus receiving a referal fee from Amazon. But if you don’t want to buy them, you can just listen to them on Spotify (they’re all there except Tinariwen’s and Justin Adams and Juldeh Camara’s)
This is the list, enjoy:

Bela Fleck, Throw Down Your Heart

Justin Adams and Juldeh Camara, Tell No Lies

Khaled, Liberté

K’naan, Troubadour

Mohammed Ilyas, Taarab

Oumou Sangaré, Seya

Staff Benda Bilili, Très Fort, Très Fort

Tinariwen, Imid’wan

Vieux Farka Touré, Fondo

Warm Heart of Africa, The Very Best
