Ocora (France), 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Classic material from the catalog of the legendary Ocora label – the French imprint responsible for some of the greatest field recordings on this planet! This set features 1977 recordings of the Gbaya – an ethnic group in the Central African Republic, featured here in both group and solo formats – almost all of which strongly feature fantastic work on thumb piano! The instrument is often used as the melodic core of the tunes – spare, but haunting – then augmented by percussion on some tracks, and usually given some sort of vocals, but only in a way that seems to be led by the ringing tones of the small instrument. Some of these tracks are quite long, and all are extremely beautiful – with titles that include "Daite", "Piere", "Naa Kore", "Naa Bua", "Fara Ko Kumanda", and "Naa Yanga". CD
