TOUR? KUNDÁ

''DANCE OF THE LEAVES''

(SENEGAL, 1993) @

The digital Brothers Touré, and worth the trouble for one cut, "Ninki Nanka, " one of the more powerful vocal pieces ever put to tape. This and 2 other pieces on this collection are from their 1984 masterpiece album, Casamance Au Clair De Lune, and they are absolutely mesmerizing in this far improved digital mastering. The 18 cuts on Dance Of The Leaves offers a fair view of Toure Kunda, the three brothers from Casamance, Senegal who revolutionized Paris Afro-pop in the late seventies and eighties, moving between rootsy balafons to funk inspired rock and African R&B, giving you both the brilliant highlights and a few of their lesser hit-seekers. I could pick nits about what's missing, but you can't complain about the searing rhythm and sax of "Salya, " the spirited vocals of "Babacady, " the intense percussion/vocal interplay of "Mamadiyo, " or their stunning dedication to late brother Amadou, "Amadou-Tilo." Add the live version of "Sidi Yella" and you see their beauty unfold. For the uninitiated, this is an honest assessment, for the fan, a chance to hear anew some of their best tracks.

This career retrospective from the founding of Touré Kunda to 1987 is heavy on material from the group's early work -- which is a good thing, because those albums are hard to find. It's slightly puzzling that nothing from the 1984 live album was included, because that is generally regarded as one of Touré Kunda's best early efforts. The first five studio releases are about equally represented on Dance of the Leaves, which gives a good sense of a band that started out as a group of traditional hotshots and added foreign and modern influences as its career progressed. There is one cut each from the later albums Live Paris Ziguinchor and Karadindi, both of which hark back to the early acoustic and traditional work. The casual fan of African music who is interested in learning about an excellent group of performers will find this an excellent introduction, and the ardent Touré Kunda fan who can't find the early albums will find it essential.
