Been absent of mind and space for a while... time to share some discoveries. After viewing some Orchestre Baobab performances on YouTube I was linked to a song called Ballakè by Bembeya Jazz National.
The soothing voice, horns, and gentle bass guitar was enchanting. Searching for their music, I discovered a compilation album online representing some of Guinea's jazz between 1965-1980.
