LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 32

Never-heard sounds from Karantamba – a rare live performance from the mid 80s, recorded in a small nightclub in Senegal – and featuring a tripped-out group led by Bai Janha – the creative force behind Guelewar and Supreme Eagles! The sound is a lot more psychedelic than most other African music of the 80s – with a strong emphasis on extended guitar parts that are dripping with really cool sounds – mixed with lots of live percussion that really preserves a rootsy, earthy quality to the music! At a time when so many others were going for world music crossover sounds, these guys really keep things real – especially in the intimate live setting of the performance. Titles include "Sama Yai", "Gore Nga", "Na Dinding Fatty", "Ndigal", "Satay Muso", and "Linga Ham". Great notes and images, too – like other high-quality releases on this label!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Massive music from Monomono – and a set of Afro Funk put together with a wonderful criss-crossing of sounds!

Ribbon, 2013. New Copy
Maybe the most mindblowing record so far from the enigmatic Omar Souleyman – a set produced by Kieran Hebden with lots of weird, sharp edges – but in a way that still keeps all the core elements of Souleyman's music intact!
