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 !
