AMA MAÏGA & Les Almamy du Melodie Volta (Mali - 1975)


I have never heard a record as that of Ama Maiga of Mali. I don not regret paying it expensive on ebay (300 US Dollars). Ama Maïga 's guitar is prodigious, I would love to hear more of it. I only know that Ama is called "the Malian arrow". The song "Deny Tologuelen" is a masterpiece of modern African music and it was recorded in Upper Volta (Burkina-Faso) in 1975.

Je n'ai jamais autant écouté un disque que celui d'Ama Maïga du Mali. Je ne regrette pas de l'avoir payer cher sur ebay (300 Dollars). La guitare d'Ama Maïga est prodigieuse, j'aimerai tant découvrir plus de lui, je sais seulement qu'on l'appelle "la flèche Malienne". Le titre "Deny Tologuelen" est un chef d'oeuvre de la musique moderne Africaine et a été enregistré en 1975 en Haute-Volta (Burkina Faso).

C'est une bombe !

Ça vaut les 300 piasses, et son jeu de guitare vaut bien plus ! ; )

Very cool. THANKS. I recently bought an ep by a Beninoise band called Orchestre La Dynharmonie. I will send you a rar file to post if you like. Thanks again for all the goodies. PS - Any chance of another try at your recent Alognon Degbevi & Les Vétérans Jazz post? The b-side cuts off before the ending.

Thank you for your comments. Reservatory, I would love to discover and make discover this obscure Dynharmonie band. Sorry for Alognon Degbevi, I did not manage to read the all record and I don't know why because it is in a good shape. Maybe my turntable has a problem.

Now that I've heard (continuously) agree that Deny Tologuelen has a spectacular guitar but all the group sounds great, cool, lucid, flexible, like a live take with no ambient sound, Ama(dou?) says something about the Sonrai audience, I seem to understand (Maïga is the Songhoy surname par excellence).
I do not think the same band on the album that gave us Likembe.
to be Continued ...
