Baba and Djana Sissoko - Fasiya (LP) (Vinyl)

Vinyl LP pressing. 2018 release. Never content with the ordinary, Baba Sissoko started his personal outstanding musical journey in Bamako, Mali, several years ago. Carrying on his shoulders the legacy of a legendary dynasty of Malian griots and repeating to himself that "It's getting closer and closer but I'm not there yet" he broke all the boundaries, collaborating and recording with artists such as Youssou N'Dour, Ry Cooder, Buena Vista Social Club, The Art Ensemble Of Chicago and becoming the first Malian who ever deserved the stellar Obaland Awards" for Best African Jazz musician of the Year 2018. His most appreciated satisfaction came few years ago when he found our that his firstborn daughter, Djana Sissoko, a young and super talented 18 years old, decided to follow his path and join him in the mission to deliver his meaningful message of peace and joy to the world. Consolidating the relationship with the Italian producer Luca Sapio they recorded a new album together called Fasiya that magnifies this cross-cultural exchange where looking at the roots to shape the future is the key point. If ever a record delivered the promise of new excitement this one is exactly that kind.
