Packaging: CD Regular

'The Original Sound of Burkina Faso' follows the hugely successful 'The
Original Sound of Mali' compilation released in March this year, also on Mr
Bongo. Here we have a collection of songs that pay tribute to a truly golden
age of music; touching on folk, funk, blues, highlife, disco, psyche, latin,
rock and soul.
Burkina Faso may be one of the least well-known parts of West Africa but it has
a deep history and musical pedigree. A few years before President Thomas
Sankara changed his country's name from Upper Volta to its current one, a new
sound emerged to soundtrack a cultural revolution.
Featuring music by Abdoulaye Ciss , Amadou Balak , Pierre Sandwidi & Super
Volta, Tidiani Coulibaly & Dafra Star, Bozambo, Youssouf Diarra and more.
Including a booklet
with extensive liner notes and photography.
Compiled by David 'Mr Bongo' Buttle and Florent Mazzoleni.
