Fresh Nigerian synth-funk from Burkina Faso, recorded sometime between the late 70’s and early 80’s. Groovy dancing sounds and killer keys, and the slow burners will kill you softly. One of Burkina Faso’s more powerful vocalists, Sandwidi appears on the recent Bambara Mystic Soul compilation from Analog Africa and will appeal to fans of William Oneyeabor.
