Manou Fofana – Ko-Te-Ban

This is a tape by a Toma artist from the forest region of Guinea. I’m told Manou Fofana is not very well-known in Conakry, Guinea’s capital, but she’s all over the radio in Macenta, southeastern Guinea. My friend Simon (of the much-revered Slow Music from Africa mixtape) brought this one back from there. Thanks for sharing this laid-back set of sublime (and dance-able) tunes. I really like tracks like “Walôh,” which are apparently based on traditional ceremonial music from the forest.

Some of this tape sounds like modern urban music, other parts feel more traditional. All of it is chill.
