A beautiful package of work from Keletigui Et Ses Tambourinis – a group who've never been represented this well in the reissue market – finally getting their due in a well-done 2CD set! The sound of the group's a bit different than some of their contemporaries – a haunting blend of reeds mixed with guitar, and often set to rhythms that have a gently flowing, almost bubbling sort of quality – one that echoes other popular African rhythms of the period, but which often change up in really cool ways! The hors are often what make the grooves so great – soulful tenor, sharper alto sax, and some sweet flute lines that dance across the top – echoing the spirit of the guitar nicely. And the instrumentation changes a bit from track too, making for a fresh sound throughout. As with other titles in this series, the package features full notes in English and French, plus lots of wonderful photos too – and most cuts in the collection come from the years 1968 to 1972 – lots of great singles, plus most of one LP. Titles include "Toubaka", "Guajira Con Tumbao", "Ilole Gbanina", "La Bicycletta", "Donsoke", "Bebe", "M'bongi Eyi", "Kabakele", "Kesso", "Mariama", "Kadia Blues", "Djoute Wassa", and "Jrda".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
