Super Yapi "Oye EP" (Safie Deen/Phillips 424676 BE)

Dès sa fondation au milieu des années 60, le label Safie Deen publie ce qui se fait de mieux dans le domaine de la musique ivoirienne moderne, notamment afro latin. Ce EP rare d'inspiration afro cubaine est l'oeuvre d'une formation très populaire à cette époque en Côte d'Ivoire.

  1. Superbe post. Dur de ne pas succomber aux jeux rythmiques et mélodiques de cette période. Merci!

  2. I found your site through Oro, and am eager to investigate all the unheard bands and discs here. Since you have posted a few Safie Deen records, I thought I might ask about a Cote d'Ivoire artist named Appiah Morro, who released at least two records on that label, catalog numbers SS4 and SD 1016. Awhile back, I posted a really wonderful LP by his band Ahouanou Jazz and have since found two more LPs under his own name. Anyway, since you're delving into music that is well off the beaten path, I thought you might know of him. Check out the link below. It's an unusual album, and very fine. Keep up your great work putting long-forgotten music out there for the world to discover and treasure. THANKS!

    1. Thank you very much for the link! Yes I know Dr Appia Morroh. He has published the two records you talk about on Safie Deen and three other solo LPs on Ayoka Records. I know two of them, they are very good and I'll propose them on the blog in the next months. He is the founder of Ahouanou Jazz but he has also played guitar in les Cantadors de la Capitale with Bony Pascal, which is an excellent ivorian group, too - check the lp we have published two months ago!

  3. I've got Ayoka 004 and 008, if you need either of them. I do miss the big Ahouanou Jazz sound in these. 008 seems particularly spare. I'll listen now to the Cantadors. I have a feeling I'll be discovering all sorts of surprises here. THANKS!

    1. I've the same LPs as you, I'm actively searching for the Ayoka 005 and the two Safie Deen records which seem to me very rare. And we'll post another very good Cantadors LP next week !
