Each week, we will be sharing the top 200 albums that have shaped me so far. The album this week is Sarala by Hank Jones Meets Cheick-Tidiane Seck and the Mandinkas.

Released in 1995, this album is the perfect musical mélange of West African grooves, provided by the great Malian musician, Cheick-Tidiane Seck and American jazz pianist Hank Jones. Together their spiritual, haunting jazz fusion hits all the right spots.
