The Execrable Bede
Another amazing recording of an outstanding Malian percussion ensemble from SambaLolo Production. The only short-coming of this incredibly energizing album is the complete lack of information about the musicians and vocalists who participated in this session, or any information about the session itself, although all indications are that it was recorded in Bamako.
Favorite track: Soungouroun Kelen.
Gorgeous -- propulsive music to soothe the soul, clear the mind and heal the body, played on traditional Bobo, Mandé and Bamanan instruments, accompanied by enchanting (and often exhilarating) individual & group vocal performances The Execrable Bede
