1 - AMAZONES DE GUINEE, LES - WAMATO - (CD) 
STERNS


'Les Amazones De Guinee" were originally "l'Orchestre Feminin de la Gendarmerie de Guinee" and as such were all serving officers and soldiers of the Guinean militia. They still are.Between their 2nd album Au Coeur de Paris and Wamato is cool 30 years but things move slowly in Guinea and, as is the way of these things, tehre have been retirements and deaths, notably of original saxophonist Fatou Soumah and "La Reine des Amazones, guitarist Nyepou Haba. But Les Amazones are nothing if not tenecious and bolstered by new blood and inder the direction of bassplayer Commandant Salematou Diallo, the surviving members took the long mini-bus trek from Conakry in Guinea to Bamako in Mali, there to lay down their guns and record in the same studio as Ali Farka Toure, Oumou Sangare and many more. This is the result!
