5.0 out of 5 stars A Lost Treasure of Gambian Percussive Blues March 22 2012
By Dr. Debra Jan Bibel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The Amazon editorial ably describes the background of the band Karantamba from Gambia and its leader Bai Janha, whose musical experience took him also to Ghana, Senegal, and England. He had previously performed various forms of Western music, such as salsa, rumba, R&B, and rock. Indeed, he is a fan of B.B. King, Bo Didley, and Jimmy Hendrix, and loves the blues. That influence is heard in his more mature music. Janha's odyssey is described in his interview, presented in the package notes. The music here has a powerful African percussive basis, with sabar, congas, and drum set. Throughout the 79-minute recording, the driving drum beats swirl and penetrate. Electric guitars, organ, trumpets, and vocals provide the melodies and feeling of the blues. I would not describe the sound as psychedelic, as the editorial, but it does rock and is uplifting, almost shamanistic mesmerizing. That this album--which was recorded in 1984 but remained unissued through a variety of political and personal reasons--finally has been digitally mastered and distributed is a happy event apparently thanks largely to Janha's Greek management. If you enjoy African dance and improvisational African blues guitar, consider this long lost treaure.
