Review 

Although little known outside of his native Burkina Faso, Pierre Sandwidi was once one of the leading lights of the country's post-independence "Voltaic" musical movement. The travelling vocalist and musician was dubbed "the troubadour of the bush" and was seen as a man of the people thanks to his stated socialism and frequent criticism of the country's ruling elite. 

LP version. Printed undersleeve. A few years before Upper Volta changed its name to Burkina Faso, thanks to Thomas Sankara's dream of a new society, Voltaic music emerged as some kind of true cultural revolution in the wake of the country's independence in 1960. Popular music that sprung up from Burkina Faso owed much to the music from neighboring countries and to the longing for "cultural authenticity" conveyed through Guinean music. The first two decades of independence saw the upcoming of such orchestras and artists, such as Pierre Sandwidi. Nicknamed "the troubadour from the bush", Pierre Sandwidi stands as one of the finest Voltaic artists from the 1970s.
