World music is as much about back catalogue as innovation and London-based Sterns has a formidable reputation as the pioneer shop and label. In this panoramic collection, bridging 1977-81 and 1983-93, Zaire’s singer-songwriter Taby Ley Rochereau marries seductive lullaby vocals within his orchestra’s rolling filigree guitar and burnished horn riffs.
These are the some of the most sensual sounds on the planet from a man who took a distinguished part in late 1990s Zairean politics. Accompanied by a brilliant booklet telling his story.
