Overview

Gongoma Times

This is a reissue of a 1988 Womad recording of this neo-traditional ensemble that included balafon but laid particular emphasis on percussion. The performance is admirable, the singing slightly under-recorded. A splendid plus is leader Yacouba Camara's harmonica. It's a rarely recorded instrument in African rural music, and Camara's playing makes that a major mystery. ~ John Storm Roberts, Original Music
