Mali: Habib Koite & Bamada - Foro Bana (Prague 2009)

Habib Koite (b. 1958) is an internationally known Malian musician who sings and plays the guitar. He is well known primarily for his unique approach to playing the guitar by tuning it on a pentatonic scale and playing on open strings. Except the (traditional) sound of his country, he can also play a new latin style and a style which is called Malian Blues. Koite's vocal style is intimate and relaxed, emphasizing calm, moody singing rather than operatic technical prowess.

His supporting group "Bamada" is a super band of West African talented members. They play guitar, bass, drum set, harmonica, violin, calabasa, and kora. Koite composes and arranges all songs, singing in English, French, and Bambara...

The Beatles - Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band is the eighth studio album by the English group "The Beatles", released in June 1967. Recorded over a 129-day period beginning in December 1966, Sgt. Pepper sees the band exploring further the experimentation of their previous album, Revolver (1966). Making use of orchestras, hired musicians and innovative production techniques, the album incorporates elements of genres such as music hall, jazz, rock and roll, western classical and traditional Indian music; its lyrics deal particularly with themes of childhood and everyday life. Sgt. Pepper is a loose concept album that sees The Beatles performing as the fictitious band of the album's title. The cover art, depicting the band posing in front of a collage of famous individuals, has itself been widely acclaimed and imitated.

Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band was a commercial success, spending a total of 27 weeks at the top of the UK Album Chart and 15 weeks at number one on the American Billboard 200. A defining album in the emerging psychedelic rock style, Sgt. Pepper was critically acclaimed upon release and won four Grammy awards in 1968. Often recognised by prominent critics and publications as one of the most influential albums in the history of popular music, Sgt. Pepper frequently ranks at or near the top of published lists of the greatest albums of all time!

Track List:

1. Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (2:02), 2. With A Little Help From My Friends (2:46), 3. Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds (3:30), 4. Getting Better (2:49), 5. Fixing A Hole (2:38), 6.

Jimmy 'Fast Fingers' Dawkins - Me, My Gitar & The Blues

Άλλο ένα εκπληκτικό τραγούδι απ' το σπουδαίο εκλιπόντα! Αυτή τη φορά έχει τίτλο "Me, My Guitar And the Blues", ή καλύτερα "Me, My Gitar And the Blues" καθώς συχνά του άρεσε να ακολουθεί ένα ειδικό, προσωπικό τρόπο γραφής για τους τίτλους των τραγουδιών του...

Καλό του ταξίδι...
