Clash Mandingue – Manding Dance Music Of The 60s

CD (Item 474274) Oriki (France), 1960s — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock


4.90 32

A killer blend of Latin and African rhythms – topped by Kante Manfila's amazing work on guitar, which is produced with a range of weird and wonderful sounds! There's a quality to this music that's beyond easy description – a 60s blend of African roots and outside influences – most strongly an influx of Afro-Cuban rhythms, but also a touch of Anglo rocking on the guitar sound and production, and on the cool use of organ on a number of the best tracks. The rhythms are often quite tight – dancing lightly on some pachanga-oriented numbers, hitting a bit harder on some boogaloo tracks – and then really letting loose on some of the really fierce cuts. Sorry Bamba delivers flute or trumpet lines on some tracks – and his flute is especially nice, with a really sharp-edged, eerie sort of quality. Collection features work recorded together by the pair or under Kante's name – plus a few solo tracks by Sorry – and the CD version features 23 tracks that include "Mobakan", "Air Afrique", "Super Bara Serah", "Keleya", "Serre", "Bravo Mimos", "N'Diarabi Bedonna", "Tira Kaba", "Djantou Madjila", "Ladji", "Diyabanale", "Mosso Gnouma", "Djeli Mango", "N'Na", "Mamou", "Kelai Magni", and "Djantou Madjila".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
