Le Mystere Jazz de Tombouctou

February 16, 2012

le mystere jazz de tombouctou – dina waliji (taken from “st“, mali kunkan 1977/ kindred spirits 2012)

Endlessly deep record from Mali, and a serious contender for best band name ever. In 1977 the Malian government funded a series of records through the Mali Kunkan label, highlighting some of the orchestras active at that time. This is one of best – and rarest – in the series, and has now thankfully been reissued by the Amsterdam-based Kindred Spirits label. Check out one of the more laid back tracks above, and know that the rest of the record is equally jaw-dropping!
