Live At The Pito Bar

CD

A really amazing little record, with a sound that's unlike anything else we can think of! The session was done as a field recording in an outdoor bar in Ghana – as an effort to focus on the balafon talents of Bernard Woma – but the overall presentation of the music is a fair bit different than some of the other balafon albums we've heard! First of all, the xylophone-like instrument isn't played just with mallets on the keys by Woma, but also at the same time by another player – who uses sticks on both the frame and the keys in a highly percussive manner. Added to this is a third musician on additional percussion – making for a highly rhythmic sound that echoes out with the strong vibrations of the main notes on balafon! The sound is almost Congotronic in nature – a bit distorted, but highly energetic – and the crowd noises of the field recording only add to the intensity of the music. Titles include "Kelewele", "Fufu", "100 Cedis", "Gori Foto", and "Tiebou Dienne".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.
