DELETED Sublime Frequencies presents the inaugural volume in a three volume set of contemporary field recordings by Hisham Mayet, recorded in Burkina Faso during three expeditions from 2013-2015. All volumes have a full-color insert of liner notes and a map of Burkina Faso.
Volume 1 highlights the sacred and secular music of the regional balafon or xylophone revered by the Lobi people of southwestern Burkina Faso. In Lobi culture, the balafon performance is not simply music; it is a form of speech that allows master musicians to converse intimately with the living and the dead. Volume 1 showcases two side-long tracks that are as thrilling as any Burkinabé music ever recorded. Includes performances by Kabaré Balafon and Lobi Balafon.
