Farafina - Kanou mp3 album
From Burkina Faso, Farafina has become something of a West African institution after 20 years together. And on the basis of this, the group's fourth album, it's easy to understand why. They remain firmly rooted in the griot tradition, with the melodic balafon as the prime instrument, but they also build on that for an unmistakably individual sound, fronted here by the glorious vocals of Fatoumata Dembele.
Farafina is a music and dance group from Burkina Faso, established in 1978. The eight-member group is Burkina Faso's best known musical group, and one of Africa's most internationally prominent musical groups. Farafina was founded in the southern city of Bobo Dioulasso by the balafon player Mahama Konaté, a member of the Senufo ethnic group and a performer with Burkina Faso's national ballet.
For years this was due to the lyricism of founder Mahama Konaté's virtuosity on the balafon marimba
