Amadou Balake - Baya (cass MGS 3120).

It doesn't mean that I don't find this relatively recent (late 1990s) cassette by Amadou Balaké very interesting. What's most interesting is the fact that Balake remains 100% himself in these recordings despite the modern (and in my opinion inferior) instrumentation. It proves the timelessness of his talent. The cassette contains versions of the classic Balaké tracks "Wariko" ("wari magnin" - money is bad, - and the root of all evil, even in Burkina Faso...), previously on Sacodis LS 7-78 and Zamidou Prod. 1582, and of "Kambeleba", previously recorded with the Super Volta orchestra. Even if the cover is dreadful, I don't care: it's still Balaké! -------------------------------------------- Posted by WrldServ
