Coulibaly Tidiani & Dafra Star: 1st Opus (Burkina, 1975)


Tidiani Coulibaly was born on December 31 in 1941 at Kankalaba, "Upper Volta". He is a pioneer of modern music in his country. He became famous with Volta Jazz Orchestra during the sixties. In 1975, he founded his own orchestra, the Dafra Jazz, and recorded is first album that I offer you today with tremendous pleasure. This album is rare... Coulibaly inspired many artists and was also inpired by Amadou Ballke. He pays tribute to him on "Doro Daga".
On the next opus that I will offer you soon, released in 1978, Ballake is invited to sing by Coulibaly. Be patients...
