Idrissa Soumaoro et l’Eclipse de l’I.J.A – Djama (La Société) (Mali, 1978, Eterna)

Following to that former post, I wanted to share with you for today “Djama” (“Society“) a bewitching Afro Soul Funk blend of catchy guitars, psychedelic organ parts & celestal voices, taken from a record produced in very small quantities by a Bamako based German association which took care of blind Malian teenagers.

Only promotionally released at the time, this is the first record on which were revealed three future huge names of the Malian music : Idrissa Soumaoro, Amadou Bagayoko and Mariam Doumbia (from the very well known Malian musical couple “Amadou & Mariam“).

The song presented here was composed by Amadou Bagayoko, and has Mariam Doumbia on the vocals – Enjoy !

Firmin Viry – Ti Crie A Moin Anin (Reunion, 1970s, Disques Issa)

For today, I wanted to share with you “Ti Crie A Moin Anin“, a incredible deep Folk Jazz Maloya track, one of the major musical genre from Reunion island in the Indian Ocean (with Sega music), that blends together musical roots from France & former slave chants from several African countries such as Zimbabwe (where “Maloya” could be translated by “great sorcerer“), Mozambique (where it could be translated by “incantation“) and Madagascar (where “Maloy Aho” could be translated by “to hurl“).

Prohibited at the end of the 50s by the French administrators of the island, this genre was officially authorized once again in the late 70s, and is listed by UNESCO as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity since 2009.

The song presented here was recorded in the 70s by Firmin Viry, one of the masters of the genre, and is my favorite from him – Enjoy !
