Electric Cowbell Records just released this EP. It’s a remix EP of Malian legendary ngon musician Cheick Hamala Diabate‘s song Prudence with one exception, a remix by Sol Power All-Stars who remixed a the song Fatou Kounkoun Sissoko.
The EP of remixes I feel clearly encompasses Cheik Hamala Diabate’s mission of staying true with his roots and griot nature (griot is a West African storyteller/poet) by bringing the traditional West African music into the mix with modern electronic composers and musicians, to reach out across the world to teach and inspire.
The remixes come from several serious producers like, Whiskey Barons, Daytoner, John Kennedy, E’s E and the aforementioned Sol Power All-Stars.
I have two of the remixes available for immediate download which are as follows:
