Afrique Varietes – Various Artists,Afrique Riviera

Afrique Varietes, front

Gilles Sala was the man who compiled this LP for the Afrique Riviera
label. Tasteful and rich in variety as the title already suggests. I am
particularly fascinated by the likembe songs like tracks 2,7 and 16,
heavenly atmosheric sounds from the Congo with Jean Essous
on saxophone, but also the music of the Mingole brothers is a
discovery. My guess would be this stuff is from about 1972..what
would you say ? Get it and listen to this rare collector.
