About this item

Featuring SALIF KEITA, SORY BAMBA, CHEICK TIDIANE SECK and many more! A Big Band from Berlin travels to Mali to experience the legendary Malian musicians of the seventies. That is the amazing genesis of The Omniversal Earkestra and the Le Mali 70 project. The Omniversal Earkestra made its pilgrimage to Mali where they met legendary artists such as Cheick Tidiane Seck, Sory Bamba, Abdoulaye Diabate and Salif Keita. Traveling all of Mali they visited the homes of by now almost forgotten bands such as Mystere Jazz de Tombouctou, der Kanaga de Mopti, Super Bitons de Segou and the Railband of Bamako. The results of this amazing trip are modern Big Band arrangements of old Mali songs that were recorded at the end of the road trip during n intense week in the Moffou studio together with Salif Keita.
