Ta Lassa on 12" Single

Limited twelve inch vinyl pressing. Composed by Gnamakoron Sidi Diabaté, ‘Ta Lassa’ was originally featured on an album released in 1983 by French Warners offshoot WAM (West African Music) - a short lived label that recorded about 20 releases of West African music released in France. Also featuring Mory Djely Kouyate, this track was a staple of the 22 Band's repertoire in the 1970s (in which many of the ISB played) - famous for their recordings on the legendary state-run Editions Syliphone label. This 12" features an extended Hide & Smile Edit on the A side and the original album version on the flip. An extended intro of throbbing bass and keyboard interplay punctuated by classic Guinee guitar lines, metronomic drumming and ‘80s synth sweeps eventually drops into a more recognizable Guinean vocal outing.
