Super Onze de Gao - Enregistrés Pour Yehia Le Marabout
Electrified sessions of takamba, the ghostly drone from Northern Mali. Staccato calabash percussion carry shredding traditional guitar. Improvised praise for Yehia the holy man by masters Super Onze, recorded in the early 90s. Distortion and fuzz from pickups and tape hiss reveal the soundscape of the Northern dusty villages - where takamba blares from radios, boomboxes, and old cassette tapes. First ever Super Onze vinyl release, limited 500 copies with screenprinted covers.
