Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
3.5 stars. For some reason I thought this was a few notches below the regular high standard
of an Analag Africa compilation, so it took a while before I bought it. African Scream Contest,
Legends Of Benin and the Poly-Rythmo compilations are all classics and set an impossible high
standard to follow. Bambara Mystic Soul is not that jawdroppingly great, but after playing it
over and over the last few days I'm glad that I bought it, because most songs hold some great
moments.

Unfortunately the sound quality is a bit poor on some tracks, including a few of the better ones,
for instance on two of the heaviest funk numbers, the organ driven "Tink-Tank" and "Katougou".
Amadou Ballake takes centre stage and is represented with 6 songs. 3 of those are amongst the
absolute standouts. Both "Renouveau" and "Baden Djougou" are beautiful songs, and on "Oye Ka Bara
Kignan" he releases the funk. A style Ballake didn't play regularly.
According to Ballake, good horn sections was hard to come by in Burkina Faso, so even though he
realized his style was well suited for funk and afrobeat, he didn't record too much of it.
