Description

Sublime Frequencies presents the second volume in a three volume set of contemporary field recordings by Hisham Mayet recorded in Burkina Faso during three expeditions from 2013-2015.Volume 2 spotlights Mossi, Bissa, Bwaba, Fulani and Samo music. On side one, riveting string instruments such as the Mossi and Bissa kound� accompany gnarled, primal vocal epics extolling the virtues of kings and the common man. On side two, the otherworldly sounds of the thianhou (reed zither) and the lolongo (bow-shaped mouth harp) levitate the listener into a blissful trance. Includes performances by Ibrahim from Bittou, Souleyman Zoungrena, Yehou T�r� Sedou Baba, Bomberi Willoho, Yaro Labairi, and Kousoule Lalara. Comes with a full-color insert of liner notes and a map of Burkina Faso. Edition of 400.
