This 2CD set "Authenticite - the Syliphone Years" features gems from their catalogue, most of which are on CD for the first time, and gives you an insight into the incredible energy of the times. All the great bands are here, with key songs from such legendaries as Bembeya Jazz National, Keletigui et ses Tambourinis, and Balla et ses Balladins. Also here are rare recordings from their contemporaries such as Syli Authentic, and Kebendo Jazz; groups that battled for honours against more than 30 others in Guinea's renowned arts festivals, where a 1st Prize could launch a band to stardom.

"The 28 songs collected on this double album range from delightful to downright mind-boggling, testimony to how well musicians can subvert specifications. "

JON PARELES The New York Times

"an absolute blast "

David Hutcheon Mojo

Winner of Froots 'best packaged album 2007'

Customer Reviews
Mr Stephen Chipangura : Songs No. 1, 2,9 and 11 are my choices for a sneak preview of how this music still sounds better than today's over-processed music.CD1
