Sensible ... CD Pharaway Sounds (Spain), 1983. New Copy (reissue)...
Out Of Stock
A wonderful conflation of grooves all taking place in a single space – some of the West African modes of the late 70s, coming into play with more contemporary soul elements – all spun out over a quartet of long tracks that are filled with unusual grooves! Instrumentation is electric throughout, but the rhythms often have a very organic core – no drum machines, just bubbling bass and riffing guitar – with plenty of boogie elements at play in the roots, and a relatively bubbly sound overall – almost like some of the Caribbean club work of the time, even though the group hail from the Ivory Coast. Titles include "Africa Mawa", "Djwa Yango", "Sensible", and "L'Amour". CD
