Unknown French Guinean group
LOCATION:French Guinea

To help get this blog up and running, I’ll occasionally post more than once a week, at least for a short while.

This is a brief, ethnographic recording from French Guinea (known by the French at that time as “Soudan”). It’s origins are unknown, except that it seems to be a 1930s French test pressing, with handwritten notes on the label. This would seem to be either a true field recording, or a dub of one - I know next to nothing about the “Archives Internationales de Musique Populaire”…

Despite being stunningly low-fi and tinny it’s still a unique document.
