THE FULA FLUTE CD
Reviews



Fula Flute (Blue Monster/Fula Flute Music)

Fula Flute is an unusual recording dedicated to bringing the West African flute into sharp focus, and it succeeds in the hands of master musician Bailo Bah, a Guinean who played flute with Ballet Koteba throughout West Africa for 22 years before moving to New York. Multiple flutes create amazing rhythms over which Bah expounds, with force by vocalising his exhalations as he plays his instrument. many of the tunes also include balafon and kora, and with them the ensemble brings West African traditional music to life in Brooklyn. This sessions lasts an hour, which provides a hearty dose of flute with an edge.
