A few weeks ago, I was featuring the work of Nate Padavick. Well, Salli is the second co-founder of the great "They Draw and Cook" blog which, again, was a big inspiration for this blog. They just revamped the site, very nice it is.

They come from Mali

the musician : Amadou & Mariam
the tune : La Réalité
the artist : Nate Padavick

Purists will certainly say this is no jazz and I'd have to agree but I am no purist and I love discovering new artists.

By the way, Nate is the co-founder of the great "They Draw and Cook" blog which was a big inspiration for this blog. Go check it now, it is really worth it.
