FULA FLUTE ENSEMBLE
Blue Monster Records
Fulani flute or tambin is unique to West Africa and FULA FLUTE is
a unique focus on the sounds of the tambin. Picture a deep-toned,
haunting flute enhanced further by the player's actual vocal injections
from breaths and you have a rich sound indeed. FULA FLUTE is not for
the casual listener, nor for the classical flute enthusiast: what
sets this instrument apart is the ability of a master player such
as Bailo Bah to inject wailing vocals into the flute sound itself.
Further, West African fans will note the repretoire represented here
is not Fulani: Bah comes from the Fouta Jallon Mountains where this
particular flute reigns, learned to play from family traditions, and
blends the traditional music of the Manden with the Fulani overtones.
A unique sound evolves to delight the specialty listener of West African
or tambin music.
