Amadou Ballake (Burkina Faso/1980)

I Particulary like this rare single from Amadou Ballaké recorded in 1980. To describe this recording let's read worldservice description:

One of the great things about Ballaké is his diversity and his capacity to shine in any musical style. While SCD 68 contains Mandé (malinke, mandingo etc.) style songs, SCD 69 has two tracks in a very different, probably Mossi style. The song "Warba" always conjures up images of people walking backwards, while "Liguiry" evokes the contrary: a feeling of running (too) fast down a hill....
