Burkina Faso - Pays Lobi, Xylophone de Funérailles

Burkina Faso - Pays Lobi, Xylophone de Funérailles

Burkina Faso - «Pays Lobi, Xylophone de Funérailles»
Genre: Folk Africa | MP3 160 Kbps, VBR | Label: Ocora | 91 Mb

A collection of ritual funeral songs from the repertoire of Lobi (also here referring to the Birifor) songs for the jolonbuo (similar to the balafon in many ways). The music is deceptively simple at times, and richly complex at times, sometimes occurring together. Smaller percussion items are added to the music, as is the bembe drum, which is played throughout funeral ceremonies (up to two days straight). For those wishing to learn about the Lobi rituals, this wouldn't be a bad place to start. (AMG)

Le projet Afrikän Protoköl est une production artistique du saxophoniste belge Guillaume Van Parys qui s'est basé sur des rythmes traditionnels burkinabés pour composer les pièces de ce sextet énergique aux sonorités et couleurs tradi-modernes et afro-jazz. Née de sa passion pour les métissages culturels et pour les enjeux politiques et culturels contemporains du continent africain, la conception de ce projet a pu se préciser fin 2010 alors qu'il se produisait au Burkina Faso avec le chanteur Alif Naaba.
