Boubacar Traoré (Kar Kar) is one of the most accomplished and talented guitarists around and entirely sef taught. He is Malian and mainly plays what westerners call ‘desert blues’. There is an exquisite, french produced, documentary about his life called Je chanterai pour toi (“I’ll Sing For You”) that is well worth your time. The following song is from the film, in a scene within which Kar Kar and his long time friend Ali Farka Toure improvised right in the moment.
