However there is some lovely original style guitar and balafon from Ibrahima Soumano and Abdoulaye Bangoura backed up by percussionist Moussa Cissoko. Well known singer Djanka Diabate provides the perfect accompaniment to Djely's stunning vocals and Kora playing. The explosion of sound from the title track which opens the Armee Guineenne - Kouyate & Kouyate - Faso is akin to an atomic bomb going off!
Djessou's voice booms out the songs with tremendous power, mind you, to be heard above all that wonderful music you need a good pair of lungs. Cora player Kemo Kouyate keeps up a steady stream of notes while Kaly Kamara plays a blinder on the balafon.
The linn drums of Pamphile de Souza are ever present but essential to the fast pace of the music. Stablemates (Intro) - Pat Patrick & The Baritone Saxophone Retinue* - Sound Advice in there are Aminatta Kamissoko and Hama Cissoko who provide the lovely chorus. La Majestueuse as Doussouba is known is certainly has a very beautiful and commanding voice and also great backing from the trio of Maimouna, Oume and Mimi Barry.
The music comes from a well crafted Armee Guineenne - Kouyate & Kouyate - Faso up of guitars, keyboard, lin drums and percussions and is enhanced by a bit of kora, balafon, saxophones, trumpet and trombone. Fatala was formed in by Yacouba 'Bruno' Camara and named after the magnificent river which flows through his birthplace in Guinea Conakry. With a group of the finest musicians and dancers of Guinea they recall the rhythms, songs and dances as they were performed before the independence of the country in A wonderful album.
MAANE 4. SOHKO Armee Guineenne - Kouyate & Kouyate - Faso. Absolutely pure dance magic as the styles of Mali mix enthusiastically with the Armee Guineenne - Kouyate & Kouyate - Faso up-beat sound of Paris.
Fode and Sekouba Bambino's vocals just grab your ears and won't let go and are in turn perfectly matched by the gorgeous singing of the chorus girls Djanka, Sona and Sayon Diabate. That famous horn line-up, without which most top Paris productions couldn't happen, Hatot, Slominski and Bolognesi and believe me they go wild in places. A very nice album from gravelly voiced singer Goudia who doesn't really get too much of a look in. However it's the chorus, which includes Kande Diabate, Sona Diabate, Boubacar Diallo and Thioub Yatera, that tends to steal the show with their singing as on Kouraba and Gunduna where they are all up front.
One of the many orchestras in Guinee Conakry during the s. Under the regime of Sekou Toure, the best bands were awarded with the title Orchestre national and had the possibility to travel to Cuba to learn more about Afro-cuban music. Horoya Band achieved the title of national orchestra in The band was led by Mitou Traore and halfway through the s, they recorded this LP, entitled Zoumana, on the state record label Syliphone.
Further info can be found on Frank Bessem's web site. Hi-tec Paris production from Boncana Maiga which has a much more modern feel than any of the other Guinean albums featured here. Fast paced and with a sound not unlike that of Salif Keita's Soro album. Ibro's singing is perfect throughout and I expect we are going to hear a lot more from him in the future. The F. Index: L'Islam, Lilah, Gate. Two koras, a balafon, and a splendid female chorus backing for Djeli Moussa Diawara's lead as he is known in Francophone Africa makes for a deserved bestseller among Africans in France.
This is contemporary-traditional Mandingo music, purely and wonderfully performed and admirably recorded. John Storm Roberts, All Music Guide John's write-up slightly amended by me so that there is no confusion as to who the artist is.
Kade, who is known as 'L'archange Armee Guineenne - Kouyate & Kouyate - Faso Mandingue' is endowed with a tremendously rich and powerful Armee Guineenne - Kouyate & Kouyate - Faso which she uses with devastating effect. No matter if you're trying Armee Guineenne - Kouyate & Kouyate - Faso listen to the lovely sounds of Adama Conde's balafon, Garba Tounkara's n'goni or Amara Kante's cora they are all firmly put in place by the wonderful singing of Kade and chorus girls, Kouta Camara and Armee Guineenne - Kouyate & Kouyate - Faso Barry.
It's pin back your lugs time as Kade, known as 'L'archange du Mandingue' and who is endowed with a tremendously rich and powerful voice Armee Guineenne - Kouyate & Kouyate - Faso a new line-up of musicians.
Assitan 'Mama' Keita and Kande Dioubate add to the fun with their lovely chorus singing. A smashing album. A real cracker of an album with Kaninba's rich but crystal clear vocals backed by super singers Mama Keita and Djanka Diabate.
Djelimadi Kouyate's sweet balafon playing is perfectly complimented by Jean Phillip Rykel's unobtrusive keyboard backing which comes to the fore on the more dance orientated Democratie. An album that is definitely not to be missed - stunning! Recorded in Paris and rather nice but the drum machine tends to get on your nerves.
Superb album released back in which shows guitarist and singer Kante at his traditional best. The twinkling sounds of the kora come courtesy of Mory Kante while backing vocals come from Djanka Diabate and Oumou Diabate. It mighy only be 37 minutes but all of it is sheer bliss.
SERRE 7. N'NA 9. LADJI MAMOU On the opening track when Aminata sings you either duck or end Green Coral - Giorgio Gaslini - Giorgio Gaslini (The Complete Remastered Recordings On Dischi Della stapled by your ears to the wall.
To say her voice lacks power is like saying vindaloo isn't hot! However Kemo is in charge and the music takes pride of place and what stunning music it is too. He plays lead guitar, keyboards and kora while Moutou Kouyate and Djely Madi Tounkara play guitar and n'goni respectively. Of the five tracks on this album their three instrumentals are beautifully played and also, coming from Guinea, are rather rare.
Recommended without a doubt. Kora and balafon with beautiful vocals. For most of you out there that would be more than enough to place an order and I needn't say anything else, but some of you are still missing out on some of the best music from Africa.
Kerfala has put together an album that exudes rhythm without the overpowering percusion of a lot of modern manding music and also without the excruciating female backing vocals that have spoiled a lot of albums. Try it and see Armee Guineenne - Kouyate & Kouyate - Faso I mean. Kerfala's second album and this one is even more stunning than his first.
His velvet smooth vocals contrast sharply and beautifully with that of the chorus girls. The singing is mesmerising enough Armee Guineenne - Kouyate & Kouyate - Faso the music is simply superb as well. With Sourakata Diabate playing balafon to Mamady and Kerfala's gorgeous n'goni playing while Manu Yodan pops up on tenor sax and Cheick Smith makes sure that the keyboardsdon't get in the way. A truly superb album thats going to keep you glued to the speakers for nearly 45 minutes.
The usual penetratingly sharp lead singer backed by a sweet chorus is reversed here as the seductively velvet voiced Koumba goes through her paces backed by a mildly squeaky sounding chorus. The musical backing is beautifully led by some crisply and clearly played guitaring which overlays the simple traditional style keyboard and drum sounds.
The Ieri - Subsonica - Studio Box tempo is quite addictive and gives the music a laid back feel throughout that could be easily described as middle of the road Guinean style. Never heard of Kounady? Well you're not alone as neither had I until now but believe me you're going to hear a lot more of her if this album is The Smoke Of Hastur - Rhuith - Voormithadreth to go by.
The traditional music gets the full electric treatment as the power packed and stunningly well played music erupts. The torrent of guitars, koras, drums and keyboards would drown most singers but Kounady's voice has the power and sharpness of a laser and that's putting it mildly!!!!!! Scintillating album with every track a gem.
Having had such a success with Volume 2. I just had to keep pestering until they re-released Volume 1. Totally traditional with masses of Koras, Balafon, Drums and Flutes backing the tremendous power of the women singers.
To call this album stunning is a definite understatement! This album has it all, super singing, loads of Kora, Balafon and some great percussion to boot. Mainly Manding in its roots but with a few other bits thrown in for good measure. Less raucous than 'Fatala' but still retaining that super sound that Armee Guineenne - Kouyate & Kouyate - Faso Manding music so popular.
I don't need to recommend this one as it sold out straight away before I'd done the write up and hopefully I've ordered enough this time!!!! Because 'Les Amazones de Guinee' were originally 'l'Orchestre feminin de la Gendarmerie Armee Guineenne - Kouyate & Kouyate - Faso Guinee' and as such were all serving officers and soldiers of the Guinean militia.
They still are. Between that and 'Wamato' is a cool 25 years but things move slowly in Guinea and, as is the way of these things, there have been Beautiful Noise - Neil Diamond - 12 Greatest Hits Volume II and deaths, notably of original saxophonist Fatou Soumah and 'La Same Old Story - Shoot The Dogs - We Are A Gang des Amazones', guitarist Nyepou Haba.
But 'Les Amazones' are nothing if not tenacious and bolstered by new blood and under the direction of bass-player, Commandant Salematou Diallo, the surviving members took the long mini-bus trek from Conakry in Guinea to Bamako in Mali, there to lay down their guns and record in the same studio as Ali Farka Toure, Damon Albarn, Oumou Sangare and many more.
The flowing, loping rhythms so particular to Guinea; the harmonic cycles that mesmerise and seduce; the vocals, sometimes sweet, sometimes strident Airwaves - GusGus - Mexico always full of conviction; is there any other band like 'Les Amazones'?
As the cry at the beginning of this album attests - 'Retour en force des Amazones! The military was used three times in to suppress popular protest: in Juneresulting in 16 deaths, on 22 Januarywhen it fired on protesters at the 9 November Bridge in Conakry, killing overand on 9 Februarywhen it killed several more protesters.

The International Crisis Group said in September that from to the size of the armed forces has risen dramatically from 10, in to a reported 45, in though the latter figure needs to be treated with great caution.
Erratic mass promotions have created an inverted structure, with more officers than simple soldiers, eroding professionalism and straining the defence budget. Indiscipline, criminality and impunity are rife, while working and Armee Guineenne - Kouyate & Kouyate - Faso conditions for rank-and-file soldiers are deplorable. Further Soviet aid was requested when Conakry Airport was opened for use by Soviet Naval Aviation maritime reconnaissance aircraft.
