2007 release. This set in The Syliphone Years series, Authenticité, is the survey of various artists that revived international interest in the golden age of modern Guinean music when it was first released in 2007. In addition to landmark recordings by Bembeya Jazz National, Keletigui et ses Tambourinis, and Balla et ses Balladins, this set features such historic entities as Orchestre de Beyla, Tropical Djoli, Horoya Band, Super Boiro and Camayenne Sofa, whose sounds run the gamut from traditional African forms to Afro-Latin dance music and on to psychedelic rock and funky Afrobeat. The 44-page booklet includes fascinating notes along with period photos and reproductions of album covers.
