Description

Deep, entrancing solo kora music. Senegalese traditional harp by a hereditary master. Audiophile sonics, recorded in a former chicken coop studio in 1984, originally mastered at EMI.During a festival in the Netherlands, music producer and record shop owner Martin Kollaart form Plexus Records heard him and asked to make a recording. In 1984 in an old chicken coop near Delft, Koite's recorded the entire album in a single day, all first takes, including overdubs. The rich sonics and deep sound beautifully presents Koite’s virtuosic and entrancing renditions of traditional and original tunes. Very curious and eclectic in his tastes, Sourakata listens and plays a wide range of styles; jazz, rock, reggae, funk, blues & classical.
