Burkina Faso : Volume 2 LP
Sublime Frequencies
Catalogue Number
Release Date
October 14, 2016

Amazing second entry in the Burkina Faso typtch from Sublime Frequencies.

Sublime Frequencies presents the second volume in a three volume set of contemporary field recordings by Hisham Mayet recorded in Burkina Faso during three expeditions from 2013-2015.

Volume 2 spotlights Mossi, Bissa, Bwaba, Fulani and Samo music. On side one, riveting string instruments such as the Mossi and Bissa koundé accompany gnarled, primal vocal epics extolling the virtues of kings and the common man.

On side two, the otherworldly sounds of the thianhou (reed zither) and the lolongo (bow-shaped mouth harp) levitate the listener into a blissful trance.

Includes performances by Ibrahim from Bittou, Souleyman Zoungrena, Yehou Téré Sedou Baba, Bomberi Willoho, Yaro Labairi, and Kousoule Lalara.
