Only 1 left in stock


The incomparable Fanta Damba, otherwise known as La Grand Vedette Malienne, was cherished for the sensitivity and emotion that she would bring to all of her work. She was also known as a Griot – a West African storyteller and historian, who preserves their ancient stories and traditions through song – and was among the first female griots to achieve international fame. This superb album, recorded in 1979, and digitally remastered for the first time, has a guest appearance by the legendary kora player Batourou Sekou Kouyaté. It is a vintage slice of West African traditional music, lovingly created by the masters of their craft.
