Komi Jose Buanzan (Komi Jose family) is performed in recognition of the Komi Jose troupe originally formed in Bamako. Basidi Kone leads an orchestra of percussionist supported by sweet melodies of balafons and a dozen young voices. The instrumentation is in the Bobo and Bamanan traditions, doundoun drums providing the base of rhythms swirling with djembe and balafon songs that originate in villages of Mali. They are passed from old masters to the new generation thereby keeping traditional beats in tact as they go through modern interpretations.
In this release, Basidi does not shy away from speed and virtuosity which characterizes Bamako's performance troupes and dances, but he also finds a way to integrate and innovate on tradition as it encounters the urban temptations.
Being one of the rare opportunities to hear Bobo balafon and djembe recorded with their natural sound and setting, this music is a trip of its own and a knowledge base for any west-african music aficionado.

Recorded live at the Bamako Coura market in Mali.
Produced by SambaLolo.
