Bembeya Jazz National – 10 Ans de Succes
Editions Syliphone Conakry 1971

Bembeya Jazz National, front

I love this record. The band gets the audiance in the right
atmosphere from the first minutes. The group is only still
being introduced when the crowd starts cheering already.
A live registration from 1971 for their 10th anniversary,
one can hear these guys were extremely popular,
with the late and great Aboubacar Demba
Camara. Rumba-Guinée is the word..,
how sweet it is.

      Very nice indeed thanks a lot.

      Now I finally hear the original version of the song “Il N’est Jamais Trop Tard” which Cheikh Lo included in his “Jamm” album.

      Great site, keep up the good job and happy 2015!
