Nâ Hawa Doumbia – Korô Dia (Mali, 1982, AS Records)

For today, I wanted to share with you “Korô Dia“, an outstanding bewitching 10min long Afro Blues Soul Folk track with catchy guitar riffs & beautiful vocals & synths parts, taken from the 3rd album of the Malian Diva Nâ Hawa Doumbia (also spelled Nahawa Doumbia), recorded in 1982.

This album features the following musicians :

Moussa Traoré : Kamele Ngoni (kind of Malian harp) ;

N’Gou Bakayoko : acoustic guitar ;

One of my favorite album of the genre, gorgeous from start to finish, hope you’ll like it – Enjoy !

Le Kéné-Star de Sikasso – Fitiriwale (Mali, 1977, Mali Kunkan)

Le Kéné-Star de Sikasso was one of the regional Malian Orchestras (such as “L’Orchestre Kanaga de Mopti” or “L’Orchestre Sidi Yassa des Kayes“) back in the 70’s.
The group was composed, among others, by François Ballo, Mamadou Touré, Mamadou Diakité and Cheick Sadibou Diabaté, former members of “L’Orchestre Regional de Sikasso“, who released one album in 1970.
For today, I wanted to share with you “Fitiriwale“, an outstanding psychedelic afro jazz track, recorded and released in France in 1977 on the mythical “Kiosque d’Orphée” label, a song that deals with wedding, and the ingratitude of the husbands towards their former wife and the good things they did for them – Enjoy !
