The Execrable Bede Another excellent release of live material by the late Lobi Traoré, which exudes the same infectious energy found on his unbelievable "Bamako Nights: Live at Bar Bozo, 1995", also available on Bandcamp, to which this album is the perfect compliment. Favorite track: Ya Time.

about

We saw Lobi Traore for the first time in one of the many dimly lit grimy night clubs of Bamako. His overdriven amp, ungrounded fuzzbox pedal and the occasional blast of feedback made for a raw electric blues soundscape distinctly African in its rhythm and phrasing. Ever since, we have wanted to capture that sound. This album was recorded live in two separate sessions. First inside the Espace Academie, a club where Lobi played regularly for about two years and the second session took place in the courtyard behind a well-known Nigerian “Hotel”.
