Diakari Dia Diakite dit Dia – Sadjona

Another gifted vocalist/n’goni ninja, Diakari Dia Diakite, piques my interest. Please go ahead and add him to the burgeoning list recently fortified by new releases from Yaala Yaala/Drag City. Hunters’ music from south of Bamako is apparently all the rage in 2010 and I am not mad.


Side A
Noumou Foly

Thank you.

2010, 1910, 1810…it’s been the rage from day one! Good stuff.

the unknown song, i sent melody to a friend and wrote this.

i believe that the song you submitted to my blog is actually from trinidad & tobago or possibly guyana or suriname.. it’s played in the “chutney soca” rhythm of that region of the caribbean, pioneered by sundar popo, or ramdew chaitoe. i am unfamiliar with the song itself, and have no idea of the singer or orchestra. the melody & rhythm are in fact indian (south asian), and not arabic. i notice in the lyrics the singer mentions “sranang”, a local name for suriname, so that is my best guess as to the song’s origin. hope this has been some help!

please, any further information about this song?

Hello Brian, seven years later, I’m listening to K7 again and I’m missing the track of Noumou Foly.
Could you put the track in please, it would be great to be able to listen to it.
Thank you.

Hi There
Ypur collection seems really awesome and hugely interesting! But have you ever thought about making it evan more accessible, like putting them in a torrent? Please take no offense, but at the moment it would be a bit tedious to download each song individually

still waiting for the song for the blacksmiths, noumou foly.

And yes, it would be interesting, Hawa Drame sung the same song, to.
