Sublime early eighties Malian abum from unsung african music heroes, Super Djata De Bamako, re-issued by Kindred Spirits! Truly gorgeous, warming intricate traditional Malian snakey lines, and rich deep percussion!

Originally released on Musique Mondiale label in Abidjan, led by the late great Zani Diabaté, Super Djata Band de Bamako stands proud as one of West Africa’s fiercest orchestras.

The record opens with a somber, heartfelt ‘Yacouba’, a tribute to a great bambara dancer from Ballet National du Mali who was murdered in Dakar in 1973. Zani’s guitar playing is hypnotic, enhanced by eerie background vocals.
