Ba Cissoko - Nimissa - 2012


Since Ba Cissoko's group became known on the World Music festival network in the early 2000s, their sound has been mixing traditional Guinean rhythms with reggae, rock and blues. The peculiar way of using the wah-wah pedal with the electrified kora gave them the nickname "African Jimmy Hendrix", supported by a spectacular and fun stage game.

In Nimissa the group, already in quintet format completed by guitarist Abdoulaye Kouyaté and drummer Alhassane Camara "D’artagnan", opens up to the brass of the AvaSaty Marching Band fanfare and to the percussions of Laurent Rigaud "Samba".

Produced by Philippe Eidel (Khaled, Gypsy Kings), the result is an album with an impressive range of sounds, from the funky Afrogroove of the song "Ako" that opens the album, to the reggae of the committed "Politiki", the jazzy groove of " Djoulo Diata "or the psychedelic of the electric kora of" Kora Rocks ". A work rooted in the original Mandingo culture and with an open gaze on all kinds of horizons of one of the most prominent African groups of the moment.

Third World - Journey To Addis - 1978 - Jamaica


In my opinion, one of the best bands when it comes to interpreting reggae fused with soul music. This is a great album, the creation of different climates is an achievement that should not go unnoticed. Excellent bass lines and vocal compositions on tracks like Rejoice, Cool Meditation, and Fret Not Theyself to name a few. Going a little deeper in the coming years to the album we have the cover we found, Now That We Found Love by O'Jays, making it to the Top Ten of the American R&B in 1979 as well as the Britisth pop Top Ten in that same anus. The simple 'Cool Meditation' made it to the British Top 20. 


One Cold Vibe (Couldn't Stop Dis Ya Boogie)

Cold Sweat

Cool Meditation

African Woman

Now That We Found Love

Samite - Stars To Share


Landing on the Windham Hill label, Samite (having dropped the "Of Uganda" from his name several years back) offers a collection of songs inspired by his return to the African continent after approximately a decade of residence in the U.S. as a political refugee. The music is largely in keeping with his introspective folk style, but this time, several prominent Windham Hill artists make appearances, including Will Ackerman, Michael Manring, and Tuck & Patti's Patti Cathcart. The results are an intriguing fusion of African pop and new age whose sound actually leans more toward the latter.


Samite Mulondo is at once a refugee and a pilgrim, a wanderer with as many homes as his music leads him to enter. He sings in a bright, sweet tenor; accompanied by his extended family of thumb pianos and percussion instruments that have come to him at different points during his travels. His demeanor is austere and remote when he is confronted with strangers one-on-one and he is unclear about their motives. Yet, he is relaxed, open, and lovable when facing huge crowds from the stage, safe within his art and protected by his beloved instruments. Up close, the latter impression turns out to be by far the more accurate one, as he tells his difficult and inspiring tale with grace, warmth and wit.
