Best of Sagbohan Danialou
Commerce Triangulaire (A Qui la Faute)
Retour au Village
Wan Gni Gni*
Djo Assou Tchédo (Laisse Moi Mon Mari)*
Adji Non Wé
*—If you only listen to two-three songs
Frank (Voodoo Funk) brought me a few Sagbohan Danialou tapes from Guinea. It's an awfully impressive gift from someone who probably had a lot of other things to bring home, like, um, 6 million records. Not sure this is my favorite but there are a couple songs that move me, plus I found the cover to be idiosyncratic and I thought I should share it.
