ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Guinea C was formed in 2004. The band plays in the hotels and bars in the tourist area in The Gambia. Hotel and Restaurant Bakadaji is their home base. In the garden of this hotel they also rehearse their new songs.

All members of the band were born or raised in Guinea, West Africa. They call their country Guinea Conakry, to distinguish it from its neighbor Guinea Bissau. To honor their homeland they named the band Guinea C. They also painted their instruments in the color of the Guinean flag: red, yellow and green.

After playing in several groups in various West African countries, the musicians came to The Gambia. This country has a blooming tourist industry and the holiday makers appreciate live music.

On January 1st 2007 the musicians sat together, talking about the future. They decided that making a cd should be their top priority. Setting aside whatever they could miss, they then approached their tourist friends and the manager of hotel Bakadaji. With their help the first cd was recorded by Wole Rendall at the AFG studio in Serrekunda. The cd is called Bakadaji as a tribute to the hotel owner and the manager, who helped them in many ways.

Amy (Leiden, The Netherlands)

One of the best cd's I ever bought
No matter what mood I’m in, this music gets me dancing. It’s so cheerful. Traditional could be interpreted as old fashioned; here it means proven. Proven to be good. I especially love the balafon, which creates a carribean holiday feeling. The vocals are powerful, in the style of Youssou N’Dour. This is one of the best cd’s I ever bought.

Love the album, brings back memories
Really love the album, Seen the boys play live in The Gambia several times.
Great voices, good music.
Gives a great impression of the music made in Africa.
Looking forward to their new album.
Keep up the good work.

These guys are truly gifted. The excitement, the energy, the joy...
I adore this CD! These guys are truly gifted. Their inner joy resonates throughout the music. It took me right back to that Afrikaans Concert somewhere in Belgium that weekend in '86. The excitement, the energy, the
joy...it was all there.You can almost hear them smiling as they play! My daughter insisted on going to bed with the music, and it was still on this morning when I went to wake her. What glorious sounds! We will be listening
to this cd often. I may even take it outside to educate the neighbours on good ethnic music. It is fantastic. So, when is the next one due to
be released?
