Africa: 50 Years of Music (1960-2010)(selected by Ibrahima Sylla)

Postby panam » Fri Mar 24, 2017 9:13 pm

One of the most incredible selections of music celebrating the 50 years of independence of most African countries.

The most comprehensive compilation of African music ever achieved, Africa – 50 Years of Music collects 183 classic recordings by 183 important artists from 38 countries in North, South, East and West Africa.

The deluxe longbox set includes a 76-page book of photographs, recordcover reproductions, specially-commissioned artwork and essays by experts on each of Africa’s popular styles. Pieces by Mark Hudson (Daily Telegraph), Véronique Mortaigne (Le Monde), Patrick Labesse (Le Monde), Francis Dordor (Les Inrockuptibles) Bouziane Daoudi (La Libération), Daniel Brown, Daniel Lieuze and Leonardo da Silva (RFI, French Radio).

Conceived by the producer Ibrahim Sylla and divided by regions

"Tracing the impressions of politics on art is difficult, but the collection’s compilers, a brain trust led by Paris-based producer-impresario Ibrahima Sylla, have made it near impossible to hear any of the music, from praise songs and rustic chants to groove workouts and urbanized dancefloor smashes, without wondering about its context."

"En total, ciento ochenta y cinco selecciones supervisadas por el senegalés Ibrahima Sylla, productor, coleccionista y toda una autoridad en la materia."

I dunno - this is less of a list and more of a compilation CD.

CD compilations were admitted when they had some selective criteria, and it's Africa of alltime!!

Could you give an example of a CD collection on AM?

The criteria of selection of this were more rigorous and ambitious than lots of critics lists.

Ibrahima Sylla is one the most recognized experts on African music and the selection was supported by dozens of music journalists from the francophone world and African countries. it must be eligible
