1979's Sory Bamba Du Mali was a masterpiece when it first came out, and that hasn't changed a single bit over thirty-five years later. Africa Seven are the ones to resurface this little gem of an album from the comparatively tiny corner of Africa's Mali, and it's very much in line with the rest of the wonderful music from that part of the hemisphere. "Mayel" starts off with a deep brass symphony guided by a mysterious wave of echoing guitar riffs and tribal chanting, but the following "Kanaga 78" is a moment of pure magic, a 4/4 groove with a nutty guitar and wild organ gliding with total freedom - recommended just for that. As you can imagine, the rest of this special album keeps on evolving with each new track, and from ritualistic, percussion-heavy dances to exotic rhythms, this is a must have. Don't even think of getting the original for less the L500.
