This is indeed a wonderful record. I have a copy on vinyl entitled Sourakata Koite en Hollande (Plexus, KMH 7090285), which has the same track listing and uses the background graphic of the cassette as its front cover so it is probably the same album.

According to the sleevenotes, it features Sourakata Koite on kora and lead vocals, Joseph Nganga on percussion and background vocals and S.E.G. Cisse on percussion and was recorded and mixed at Ballad Sound Studio, Vuren, Holland in December 1984.

Dunno if you get e-mail notifications, but I just commented on Snr Eddie Donkor like five minutes ago. Anyway, to follow up on that, this cassette is the second thing I downloaded from here, and it’s my second favorite out of everything that I’ve gotten so far. Truly beautiful tunes. The last track is one of the saddest things I’ve ever heard — or maybe it’s melancholy? I don’t know, I don’t speak the language. Thanks again.

just got this record on vinyl. I live close to the company who printed the original vinyl pressing. He still has some left, so if someone wants a vinyl one, I maybe could help you out.
