L’Orchestre Sidi Yassa De Kayes – “L’Orchestre Sidi Yassa De Kayes” – [Kindred Spirits]

This is a throwback to a time when Mali’s regional orchestras were untainted by “political disenchantment and economic disillusion” (see the sleeve insert). The music is jaunty, cheerful, and full of variety. The songs cover such topics as how women must be patient with their husbands and accept if marriage is to succeed, and how much pressure virgin brides have to please their husbands on the wedding night. Part of the Mali Kunkan series of official recordings, this is from circa 1977 and well worth listening to.
