Super Djata Band - En Super Forme Vol. 1
Connecting Wasulu hunter music, griot praises, pastoral Senufo dances, Fula and Mandingo repertoire with western psychedelia, blues, and Nigerian afro-beat, Zani Diabat√©‚Äôs Super Djata Band was among Mali‚Äôs top orchestras. Tracked live inside Radio Mali‚Äôs cozy environs in January 1982, En Super Forme was briefly available via C√¥te d'Ivoire‚Äôs Musique Mondiale imprint. The album centers around Diabat√© and his electric guitar‚Äôs pyrotechnics, a relentless shredder that stands shoulder to shoulder with Mali‚Äôs fingerstyle gods Ali Farka Tour√© and Djelimady Tounkara.
