Trio Bydoli – Lalia (Ivory Coast, 1980, Sodogil Editions)

The “Tryo Bydoli” band was a composed of 3 Abidjan (Ivory Coast) based Congolese musicians : Lea Lignanzi, Domingo Salsero and Bhy Gao.

They released 2 very good and hard to find albums in the early 80s before splitting.

“Lalia”, the song presented here, is the last song of their first album, a deep Afro Psych Funk track with catchy horns and guitar parts – Enjoy !
