Bembeya Jazz National - "Moussokoro" (1986)

After posting yesterday's tasty slice of Bembeya Jazz National, I was in the mood to listen to the other recordings done during the same Paris sessions. I thought you might be too, so decided instant gratification would satisfy us both! Besides, I thought this set of three albums would look great on the site, grouped together as they should be.

It's a pity that no information is provided on the albums concerning the many musicians who made these great albums, apart from Sekou Diabaté. I believe the lead singer is the fantastically talented Sekouba Diabaté, but who are the delicious horns, for example? Please contribute information if you can.

I feel very good idea, thanks.
Of course the boy in the central photo,dressed all in white is Sekouba(Bambino)Diabaté.

Thanks, Ngoni! I suspected it was the young sensation.

thank you for the Bembeya! Love their music, but I'm not familiar with the 80's recordings. If it's at least half as good as their early stuff, then this will be a great discovery for me.

All I have from 80s Bembeya is one CD compilation, so these are very welcome. THANKS!

You're all very welcome. Absolutely immerse yourselves in this music, as I did, and it will make your day. It did mine! Thanks for writing. . .
