Richard Foreman These guys channel the spirit of Djelimady Tounkara and the Rail Band in their prime, along with a bunch of other great Mali musicians, adding a layer of jam-band sensibility in their instrumental explorations. They hit the spot, totally. My album of the year (so far at least) for 2014.

In the Bamana language of Mali, Benyoro means meeting place, and that’s exactly what this band is. Based in New York City, Benyoro brings together Malian and American musicians versed in the music of Malian jelis (praise musicians), but who also have a desire to modernize it.
