      Beautiful. I didn't realise he had died. How sad. The world will be a poorer place without his music.

      Thanks all. I'm very fond of that photo. An arbitrary fact is that is my sister walking behind the tree. It was a beautiful, yet cold, day. We couldn't hang around out of doors for more than 10 or 15 minutes at a time.

      I think Ali Farka Touré was an incredible musician and a down to earth human being. I'm looking forward to the release of the album he completed shortly before his death.

      Another Ali Farka Toure fan. Wonderful man and musician thanks for the remembrance.

      Have you heard Oliver Mtukudzi and Habib Koite. Wonderful too.

      count me in as a fan of both the picture and Ali Farka Touré - un musicien "Mali cieux" !
