The Malian father and son duo of Toumani Sidiki Diabate were named Best Group for their work highlighting the griot (story teller) tradition in the awards, announced on Thursday. The Kronos Quartet, usually associated with classical music, took the Cross-Cultural Collaboration award for an album embracing the music of countries ranging from Syria to China. Allen, 74, was nominated for his "Film of Life" album but the award was as much a recognition of his lifetime achievements, Songlines editor-in-chief Simon Broughton said.
