Africain". Morocco's Majjid Bekkas has a good gnawa called "African Blues".
Contact me if you want more details.
- Two suggestions:
Orchestre Baobab, "Africa" on "On Verra Ca" cd on World
Circuit; one of the great African cds of all time in my
opnion, and a great song which runs through a checklist of
African countries, or
"Africa mokili mobimba" by Joseph Kabassélé et l'African
Jazz, one of the all time great cuts by one of the all time
great African musicians. which appeared on a collection
called Les Merveilles du passé 1957-1975 on Sonocodisc, but
may be out of print now.
These are two great all time classic cuts, if you have
trouble finding them contact me and I'll burn a copy of them
