Synopsis

Album Description
Yaya Diallo?s album Nangapè is traditional West African healing music. Combining a variety of tempos and sounds, the effect is tantamount to a therapeutic session. The album offers a refined performance on traditional African instruments, including the djembe, balafon, dounouba, and tama as well as the conga drum. This 1980 recording, Nangapè, made in Canada, is the result of Yaya?s experience and influences during his youth in Mali. The album brings together the music of two distinct heritages, the flute from the nomadic Peul culture and the balafon played by the sedentary Minianka. Two tracks are exclusively drumming. Yaya Diallo's Nangapè is suitable for easy listening or as a sitting/dancing meditation. This music is dedicated to Nangapè Koné, an elder healer, musician and sorcerer, who acted as a mentor and protector during Yaya?s childhood.
