Leon Keita - Self Titled
Although Leon didn’t make many solo recordings, his songs continue to inspire the reverence of anyone fortunate enough to have heard them. In recent years the song “Dalaka” was rediscovered by Barranquilla’s sound system operator Carlos Estrada and became an unexpected hit on the Caribbean coast of Colombia.
Twelve years after the release of the critically-acclaimed Bambara Mystic Soul compilation, this new compilation takes another deep-dive into Mandingue culture with five sides recorded during Leon Keïta’s late 70s sessions. The LP, pressed on 180g virgin vinyl and housed in a beautiful screen-printed jacket, is limited to 2000 copies worldwide.
