LittleBigPlanet musician ‘disappointed’

The musician whose song is being removed from the Sony game LittleBigPlanet amidst concerns that it may offend Muslims, claims that the music is not blasphemous and is disappointed that it is being removed.

Toumani Diabate, a Grammy winning musician from Mali, is himself a Muslim and states that it is quite normal and common for the people of Mali to mix music and religion.

The track in question, which contains two phrases from the Koran, is entitled Tapha Niang and was recorded in 2004 before being released on the album Boulevard de l’Independance in 2006.
