Mix with music from Guinea -MP3-

November 12th 2005

This mix focuses solely on the Guinean label Syliphone and while it definitely does have its funky moments, this one is more targeted towards the head than the dancefloor...

05:44 Sombori de Fria "n'kolea"
10:56 Super Boiro Band "si ississa"
16:52 Myriam's Quartette "solo quintette"
20:08 Kaloum Star "maliba"
23:28 Sombory Jazz "nana"
30:20 Simbadou de Beyla "festival"
35:20 Balla et ses Balladins "moi ca ma fout"
39:19 Quintette Guineenne "douga"
42:40 Balla et ses Balladins "nyo"
47:08 Bembeya Jazz "super tentemba"

Thanx for the feedback.
A new mix with mostly stuff from Benin will be up within the next few days. Depending on the strike situation here in Guinea and if Internet Cafes will be open or not...

Frank, thanks very much for all of your mixes. I play them all, but the Syliphone mix is my favourite. I have collected Syliphone records for a while, and think your choices are superlative. Hope to see more Guinean music on your blog.

My friend who had hosted the mp3 mixes for me had his site pulled off the net. I will have everything up and running again within a week or two!

Sorry!

I can't even find my words to thank you mate... Guinea's musical heritage is really impressive. Syliphone truly established a sound in worldwide musical history, as did Fania or Motown. Continue blowing our headphones !

Frank said...

Should be fixed now!

Just found your blog while looking for info on the outstanding Pax Nicholas record I just bought. An amazing resource!

This mix is killer - the organ on the first track is fuzzing my brain out!

Many thanks for sharing your treasures, and be sure to drop me a line on the extremely odd chance you're ever in Osnabrück and need a drink and/or place to crash. ;)
