5.00 32

One of the best combinations of African and European modes we've heard in awhile – thanks to some great overall production and execution! Belgian singer Stef Lamil Carlens works here with Burkina Faso musicians Awa Deme and Mamadou Diabate Kibie – in this very cool blend of rootsy, bluesy sounds and more contemporary songwriting – a wicked blend that shouldn't sound nearly as great as it does! The album's a great antidote to all the cultural pilfering that's gone on over the years by Anglo musicians on the African scene – and really does feel like a true collaboration in the way that Stef's lyrics are blended with the balafon, percussion, and added vocals from Ada Deme. Titles include "Taare", "Sababu", "Tasuma/Ji", "A Sera A Waara", "Sia Slide", and "Ala Lon Man Di".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Sublime Frequencies, 1970s. New Copy
A very hip collection of Algerian work from the 70s – work that predates some of the more familiar rai from the 80s, served up with a much rougher style overall! The instrumentation here is all tied strongly to the rhythms – horn parts and guitar lines that romp just as much as the ... CD
