Toe Niongui (Burkina-Faso)

Thank you to DJ Balafon for this rare and excellent mandingo record. It was edited by an Ivory-Coast label during the seventies, I suppose, and recorded in Benin at Satel studios. The arrangements are signed by the great guitarist, Edouard Ouedraogo, and his orchestra Yamb Yele, but we can also hear Ignace de Souza on trumpet. This gives a cocktail of North-South peacfull music that should be heard in Ivory-Coast. I have absolutely no informations about Toe Niongui, called "People's child", do you ?

Merci à DJ Balafon pour cet album mandingue, rare et excellent. Cet album, édité par un label Ivoirien, a été enregistré au Bénin dans les studios Satel. Aucune idée de l'année, je dirais milieu des années 70. Les arragements sont signés par le grand guitariste Edouard Ouedraogo et son orchestre Yamb Yele et l'on retrouve aussi Ignace de Souza à la trompette. Cela donne un cocktail musical Nord-Sud pacifique qui devrait être entendu en Côte d'Ivoire... Je n'ai aucune information sur Toe Niongui, dit "l'enfant su peuple", et vous ?

Savoureux cocktail que tu nous fais goûter là, Oro. Un parfum un tantinet étrange au premier abord, difficile à cerner, mais j'aime ça! Merci.
