Orchestre Bembeya Jazz National – Ne Fais Pas De Sacrifice (Guinea Conakry, 1978, Areito)

For today, I wanted to share with you « Ne Fais Pas De Sacrifice », a deep breezing psychedelic Afro Funk Soul Manding Jazz track by the famous Guinean orchestra Bembeya Jazz National (formerly « Orchestre De Beyla », the area where its members come from), co-founded in the 1961 by Sekou Bembeya DiabateAboubacar Demba CamaraSékouba Bambino Diabaté amongst others.

This song is one of the hardest to find from the band, because it was only released in 1978 on the compilation presented here, recorded between Cuba & Guinea Conakry & only out localy in La havane at the time, to commemorate the historical musical friendship between those two countries – Enjoy !
