Kante Manfila - Diniya download album

Diniya is OK, as is Soro and many other Afro-Parisian productions since the "world music" boom. Not a patch on Manfila's older recordings: far too much hit-hunting paraphernalia, from Synclavier to synth to the usual Afro-zouk horns. Manfila sings beautifully, as do the backup singers, and there are certainly splendid moments.

Manfila was born into a jali family and played balafon and guitar as a child. He joined Les Ballets Africains, moved to Bamako during the '60s and joined the Rail Band, which featured Salif Keita and Mory Kante at the time. He and Keita moved over to Les Ambassadeurs in the early '70s, beginning a fruitful collaborative relationship. Both pursued solo careers in the '80s, with Manfila moving to Paris and recording in both small, traditional groups and big dance bands.

Kante Manfila - Diniya. Side 1 Diniya Gelena Denko Alikanala. Side 2 N’Tesse Moh Kan Coh Coco Jere Lon. Been wanting to post this for ages. I love these often epic masterpieces of Mandinka electric funk. It reminds of Steve Coleman records from the eighties (in a good way). Although Kante Manfila is slightly less well known than some of his peers (Mory Kante, Salif Keita, etc), a couple of these songs are surely classics to someone somewhere. Dude can fucking sing
