Sandwidi Pierre - Le Troubadour de la Savane

Fresh Nigerian recorded synth-funk from Sandwidi Pierre (of Burkina Faso), possibly released in 1984. Groovy dancing sounds and killer keys. And the slow burners are all killing me softly. Le Troubadour de la Savane is part of a small stack of amazing wax recently lent to me by my pal Jason Urick of Galaxy My Dear. Big thanks! 320 vinyl rip by yours truly.

    thank u so much for this. another pearl! Got me thinking of francis bebey and his incredible song “fleur tropicale” somehow.

    There is one album that I am totally in love with but I haven’t found one decent rip or copy anywhere…so here’s my dreamy wish:
    Idrissa Soumaoro’s first album (where amadou & mariam is musical guests)
    Features some incredible stuff…k from the north

    Just want to say thanks for keeping all these links active!   Came to your blog pretty late in the game and just can’t get enough of it.  Having the soundcloud samples is such a great idea, as not everything is for everyone… though so far I’ve dug almost everything you’ve posted down to this date.    This one is especially crazy good!
