Classic bands from Mali 15 February 2013
Mali MusicLegendary Bands of Mali
Release date 15 Februay 2013
In 1988 we released our first compilation to showcase some of the great national and regional bands of Mali. It was taken from albums recorded by the German label Bärenreiter-Musicaphon for the Ministry Of Information in Mali and released as a series entitled Mali Music. All are now long out of print. Since independence Mali had organised a series of bi-annual cultural festivals. In 1970 the music winner was the Orchestre Regional de Segou and it was these, along with fellow regional and national orchestras, who were recorded. To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the original release of our compilation, we are making it available digitally for the first time. All transfers are taken directly from the restored analogue tape as originally supplied to Sterns.
