Discotheque 70 – Various Artists Editions Syliphone Conakry SLP 23

Discotheque 70, front

If I am not mistaking, my French is not that good, Syliphone Records
made this compilation to please thousands of happy Guinéean radio
listeners. The tracks on side-a of this lp, 1 till 5, have all been tophits
at the various national radiostations in 1970. Tracks 6 and 7 are extra’s
making a compliment to the young instrumentalists that play authentic
melodies and rhythms in modern interpretations. I am sorry track 6 has
some hiss in the background, you must realise it is over 40 yrs. old.
Nevertheless, happy listening to yall, get it before it’s gone..


1   Bembeya Jazz National – Waraba
2   Keletigui et ses Tambourinis – Tambourinis cocktail
3   Balla et ses Balladins – Kaira
4   Keletigui et ses Tambourinis – Nadia
5   Balla et ses Balladins – Moi je suis decourage
6   Papa et Sekou Diabate – Les virtuoses diabates
7   Demba Camara et son Groupe – Exhumation folklorique

    Hey Moos! Thanks for another amazing post. Although, its been a while since we&#39;ve seen the &quot;Okukuseku International Band of Ghana&quot; here at the GG. I hope that we can see them again very soon :) <br /><br />Best wishes,<br /><br />Caleb

    Yes sir a good selecion of Manding music, much more serene than expected, seeing that haughty woman with hairstyle characteristic for the Foulah of Guinea.<br />Thanks a lot Moos!

    The Diabaté brothers´ 17 minute guitar-cum-kora tune has been glued onto my record player ever since a friend gave me this precious gem years ago. Enjoy this LP, friends! OdT

    File is gone. Hmm. If it was better than 224 kbps, I&#39;d love to have a re-up.<br />Thank you anyway…

    Wonderful yet bizarre contrast as you turn from side A to side B; the calm kora / guitar, the rootsy Exhumation, after all that (excellent) Guinean jazz! Most of the pieces well worth hearing again &amp; again, I think this one will be playing on my iPyod for quite a while! Thank you, Moos
