One of the most pivotal figures in the history of Malian music is Sory Bamba. In 1979 he produced his third LP for the Paris-based Sonafric group. Long out of print, Africa Seven is pleased to be re-issuing the LP with the authorization of the newly reformed band. The re-issue benefits from extensive restoration and re-mastering to a spectral analysis level, bringing and polishing long lost and distorted sounds. The six track masterpiece opens with a blend of Afro-space grooves, cowbell and swirling organ with psych guitar and punchy horns. Sounding as fresh (if not more so) in 2016 as it did in 1979 hypnotic bass, expansive drums, twisting organ and snakelike fuzz-guitar all combine to create a masterpiece of African psychedelia.
