Best wishes for 2021! / Meilleurs Vœux pour 2021 !

 

We kick off the year with this magnificent album by Sakara singer and goje violin player Yusufu Olatunji (1909-1978), one of the finest African traditional artists ever recorded. Sakara music is a deep Yoruba traditional genre tinged with Arab-Islamic influences here featuring male voices, percussion accompanying the great master’s singing and goje playing. This brilliant slow-moving flow of delicate, complex and majestic music radiates peace, fire and lofty dignity.


Nous commençons la nouvelle année avec ce magnifique album du chanteur et joueur de violon goje Yusufu Olatunji (1909-1978), un artiste traditionnel africain essentiel. La musique Sakara est un genre traditionnel yoruba teinté d’influences arabo-islamiques, ici avec des voix d’hommes et des percussions accompagnant la voix et le jeu de violon goje du grand maître. Ce flux sonore complexe, brillant et délicat rayonne de paix, de feu et de noble plénitude.
