Merci


Thank you Sterns and thank you Graeme Counsel for the absolutely wonderful Syliphone Years collection of recordings by Balla et ses Balladins. Prior to this release I had to make do with the earlier reissue of Objectif Perfection on PAM recordings and the vinyl rips from collectors around the world. A fitting tribute lovingly done for one of Guinea's greatest bands. Very highly recommended. Out now in the UK via Sterns. Full details and samples here.

For further information I suggest a dig around at Graeme's Radio Africa site.

Yeah, this is really something to look forward to. Sterns has been on a real roll with The Rail band cd,Voice of Lightness, Authenticite, and this cd is excellent too. So far i've only heard the Mp3 made available for download, but i'm looking forward to when the cd actually is released in the US. Does anyone have any idea when that will be? Also the Orchestre De Regional De Kayes lp reissued by Mississippi is amazing too. Thanks for tipping us on that one Matt!

amen to this: I actually have a 3 or 4 of the older albums and still continue to enjoy them immensely ...

... getting the mp3s rather than having to go through the whole buy-rip-save process then wonder what to do with the actual disc post the fact would be great.

I can't wait to hear this one. I believe they'll also be bringing out a double CD of Keletigui et ses Tambourins at some point.
