In 1977, seven years after the first wave of modern regional orchestras,
the Mali Kunkan record label released another batch of classic recordings
from Mali’s best regional orchestras. Super Biton National de Ségou,
National Badema, Mystère Jazz de Tombouctou, Kanaga de Mopti, Bida
de la Capitale, Sidi Yassa de Kayes and Kéné Star de Sikasso were each
given the chance to release a collection of their own recordings.
