Jali Musa Jawara

Yasimika

(CD - Hannibal Records #1355)

Review by

This new U.S. release was first issued in France in 1983. Two koras, a balafon, and a splendid female chorus backing Jawara's lead make for a deserved best-seller among Africans in France. This is contemporary-traditional Mandingo music, purely and wonderfully performed and admirably recorded.
