For some reason Vox won't allow me to upload this file. So I'm just going to link to it and you can download it if you like.
Damon Albarn brought out an interesting solo album in 2002 called Mali Music, working with a number of musicians from Mali, including guitarist Afel Bocoum & kora player Toumani Diabate. It's a quirky selection of songs, where you can readily identify Damon's influence on this world music sound.
What I like most about it is the layered sound that is consistently present throughout the album. There is a lot of depth in these tracks with a lot of sounds to titillate your ears.
