| LOBI TRAORE - BAMAKO NIGHTS - OUT NOW |

posted at 11/18/2013

Bamako Nights captures the incendiary genius of Lobi Traoré, a soulful singer/songwriter and blazing electric guitarist of Mali, who died too young - just 49 years old - in 2010. Lobi produced five studio albums during his career, as well as four live releases, including the solo acoustic session Rainy Season Blues (Glitterhouse 2010). But Bamako Nights offers the deepest and most intimate record of this artist’s astounding power on stage in a small Bamako nightclub.

"Recorded live with a crowd that is with him all the way, it’s a joint expedition into trance, obsession, deep blues. There is no studio on-best-behaviour to hold Traoré back, especially in the vocals which are spirited, present, and gone." ★★★★★ fRoots Magazine

"Rough-around-the-edges live recording captures one of Mali’s most celebrated blues guitarist at his peak."
★★★★ Financial Times

"The recordings on Live at Bar Bozo are undeniably raw- both in style and in fidelity ... We’re all lucky someone was there to record it." Afropop Worldwide

"This doesn’t just rock, it sears the ground for a hundred metres all around. Fabulous vintage stuff." Fortnightly-ish
