Things like this are why the Manden just can’t sustain comparison.
That is Demba Camara’s 1970 track, Exhumation Folklorique. Extremely classical; the one I have even bears the artifacts of having been ripped off an aged vinyl. And still, it wins. Demba is stuck with a few minutes and a few back-up singers. And still, it wins. I mean, by our standards, all the signs of “not even trying” are there. And yet? Excellence.
