Samaya Djely dite Mah Kouyate no. 1 – Vol. 1

Some of my favorite Mandingo griot music from Mali. The electric kora rises to particularly gratifying heights throughout (don’t you dare hate on electric kora, my dudes). Meanwhile Kouyate’s voice—thick as a tree trunk, light as a feather—turns emotional straw into gold before our ears.

not to diss obama, but this blog is a far better choice for a nobel peace prize.

wild. I have the same tape. Different spine and track listing fold, but same cover and songs. I got it at a little shop in Brikama Gambia. I was there to learn and record Kora and filled mine with about 30 cassettes when I returned….been meaning to get around to sharing some of them….this is one of the best…
I don’t think its electric kora though. I think its a really bright acoustic (probably an Ovation) through an amp and effects playing kora-like runs. Pretty sure, at least.
Once again, awesome site!
thanks so much.

I always get this performer confused by name.. there are apparently 2 “Mah Kouyates”.. I’m hoping this recording finally helps me go through all my “Mah Kouyate” tracks and find #1!

Thanks so much, you are truly Awesome…

Thanks for this fantastic cassette.

Mah Kouyate Nº1 was singer in the National Badema ,she is a simple and elegant woman with a always ageless voice, when interpreting any classic gives it a new form.

@ steve Pile, you spoke of that pack of cassettes long time ago, we’re waiting ¡¡

@ Damien Masterson,there are two Mah Kouyate both fantastic, this is No. 1 and the other is No. 2 Mah Kouyate with Fimani her husband beside,who sadly recently died.
