The inspiration for Ludovico Einaudis I Giorni was a 12th-century folk song from Mali about a hippopotamus who was cherished by the residents of a nearby village but killed by a hunter. The song, writes Einaudi in his succinct liner note, is sung as a lament for the death of a king or a great person or for the loss of a loved one. The result is a tender and introspective set of 14 piano pieces. This work was written after Einaudi heard the kora playing of Toumani Diabate whilst travelling in Mali.
