A kind acquaintance named Benni found this in Zimbabwe in 1993 so we're dusting it off in praise of another beautiful day in New York City.
Awesome Tapes from Africa DJ sets in France coming up:
October 1 Rennes/Pause Métissée L’Ubu with DJ Bone/Labelle/Night Knight

Fanta Damba du Mali Vol 2 (accompagné à la Cora par Batourou Sekou Kouyate)
Alla Kana Moko Djougou Ki Serreye
Ba Douga Den
Tape quality is really hissy here but this is Fanta Damba. She's a legend and her voice will destroy you. And ho boy if there aren't some sublime instrumental performances contained herein.
Buy one of her digital albums here.
