‘the most primal blues LP to have come out of Africa in a while’, Mojo; ‘a terrific set of garage blues party music… far from the soporific tastefulness of the African World Music coffee table scene’, The Wire.
Chokingly beautiful last recordings, singing with soul and tenderness to his own guitar accompaniment. We loved Lobi, and we’ll miss him badly.
Quintessential Malian blues.
Scorching live recordings from a knockabout Bamako club in 1995, with Lobi putting his new flanger through its paces. Easing in with the soulful, hypnotic Ni Tugula; Sigui is down to business.
