Pascal Bony et les Cantadors de la Capital (1977)

I found this gem in a charity shop in Bath at the end of December, and its been getting some heavy use since I got it home. Can't really tell you much about it as there's little info about Pascal Bony (or Bony Pascal) to be found on the internet. What I can say is that its very lo-fi and sounds like it was recorded in the midst of a really great party. The music is a frenetic blend of a variety of styles from the Cote d'Ivoire and Western Africa. There are some gloriously chaotic moments on 'Abobgna' where the whole thing sounds like its about to fall apart, but this just seems to increase the excitement.

02 Alakamin
03 Assouo Kpla Mousouo
04 Annee de la Femme
05 Ahouan Foue

Hey, this Pascal Bony is very nice - one of my favorites already!
I've recently found your blog and have been blown away by some of your finds (I'm from USA).
I'm really liking "Osayomore Joseph & the Ulele Power Sound", too.

Thank you!
