The Rewind No 41: Super Onze De Gao ‎– Enregistrés Pour Yehia Le Marabout

Super Onze De Gao ‎– Enregistrés Pour Yehia Le Marabout

Via Sahel Sounds:

Electrified sessions of takamba, the ghostly drone from Northern Mali. Staccato calabash percussion carries shredding traditional guitar. Improvised praise for Yehia the holy man by Masters Super Onze, recorded in the early 90s. Distortion and fuzz from pickups and tape hiss reveal the soundscapes of the Northern dusty villages – where takamba blares from radios, boomboxes, and old cassette tapes. Listen to one of the finest Takamba albums below.

 

Ngoni:
Yahia Mballa Samaké
Douma Maïga

Calabash:
