✨✧ Henri GuedonCosmozouk Percussion ... LP
Epic/Superfly (France), Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The coolest grooves we've ever heard from percussionist Henri Guedon – a really wonderful blend of Latin, Caribbean, and jazz-based influences – all filtered into a very special sound! There's plenty of percussion at the core, but there's also some sweet keyboards too – used sparely, so that the album's not a funky electric one – but in just the right ways to bring in a cool sort of 70s funk touch to the whole record – almost in some of the ways you'd find with Nuyorican funk of the same time! Vocals are great, too – mostly in French – but the instrumental element is what really moves us – and it moves us plenty! Titles include "Brujeira", "Tou Patou Feme", "Guajira Contestation", "Bomba Miscien", "Vulcano", and "Marcel Song". LP, Vinyl record album
(Beautiful pressing – super heavy cover and vinyl!)

Yoro SidibeYoro Sidibe ... CD
Yaala Yaala, 2008. Used ... $4.99
Hypnotic vocals from Yoro Sidibe – a "hunter's singer" from the Wasulu region of Mali – and one who works with a very unique sort of groove! All tracks here feature Sidibe also playing the donso ngoni, a rough harp-like instrument that resonates strongly, and which is supported by some rougher scraping percussion from other players – who occasionally also sing alongside Yoro's lead. The tracks are all long, and tell epic hunting tales – although the language will be lost on most Anglo listeners like us – leaving just the cascadingly rhythmic patters of the music and vocals, which is more than enough to hold our attention!
