You're probably not the only person who sees it that way, but it seems like a fairly weak analogy to me.  "Not usually" being a fan of a particular genre of music is not the same as "normally" disliking an entire race of people.
 
Agreed.  One can absolutely not be a fan of the genre World Music (as broad as that may be) without having h8red and bigotry in their heart.  I don't care for Celtic music but I'm pretty sure that doesn't mean I have a problem with the Irish.  You gotta be looking to be offended to think otherwise.
'I Mada' translated is, 'A Termite'.
Can you hear the little bugger here?
Interesting this was played immediately after Wild Horses by the Stones...certainly has some same characteristics.

Visited Essouira (Morocco) a couple of years ago while working overseas.  Their Gnaoua music festival features a LOT of this mesmerizing music.

Try it outside on a cool, quiet evening.
Wow, loving this guitar work ... must investigate more. Thanks RP

I don't think you are entirely alone, but I do hope that you are in a "minority" in your rush to judgement.
A narrow perspective vis-a-vis musical preferences is not equivalent to racism; although I think it may indicate a lack of imagination.

IMHO

Pretty good tune, BTW.

I was introduced to Habib Koite 2 years ago, travelling through Eastern Morocco and was hooked. Desert Blues at it's finest.
What? No lyrics? Great sound. Thanks for playing.
lovely vibe! thanks RP!

more like this please??   {#Hearteyes}
Wow, I love this,
can anyone provide lyrics?
wonderful.

Very nice tune this early morning. 
Very enjoyable.  Just had me noticeably chill out - toward the end of a tumultuous day.  Never heard of you, but "Thanks Habib & Bamada!"

Fucking annoying.
Instantly more peaceful, thanks....
WONDERFUL SONG FROM A GORGEOUS ALBUM!
Yet another colorful patch in this rich and varied quilt of Radio Paradise. This beautiful and different song is why I listen.

Nice transition from this to the Moody Blues' "Visions of Paradise."
Wow, apparently I'm way in the minority here, but I do not like this, Sam I Am. 
Wonderful!

I took that when Habib Koité performed at Berea College last year.

You and most of the rest of us Trudeau!  Fantastic new stuff plus all the classics—great station, ain't it?!  {#Clap}

Hmm feels like it penetrating my soul, I feel strange... get it out of me! I dont wanna be a nicer person...{#Sad}
Heh, just listening to Baro on the way in to work this morning.

Seen 'em live - killer show. The guy on percussion (shoot, forget his name) is utterly amazing.

This was my first album, I've since added Baro and Afriki. All three are stellar efforts.
Just fantastic!{#Dancingbanana} I love me some Habib Koite'!{#Clap}

Just saw these guys Friday night.
Holy mackerel, if you ever get the chance, DON'T pass it up.
They are utterly amazing live!

I was first introduced to these guys when my mother-in-law brought me one of their CD's from France...if I had been listening to RP at the time, I already would have recognized them...

I was also introduced to HK&B on RP, (but I only got my mitts on this album).

Well worth it!  Preciously the type of music I love to hear on RP.

Beautiful string interplay.
:meditate: nice song!!
Music like this is one of the reasons why I listen to RP. :good-vibes:
Nice tune :music:
Excellent, most excellent! There are some guitar chord changes in there which are so subtle as to be almost invisible, yet they are crucial and beautiful.
