Reservatory; So many thanks (in advance) for this series of posts.

Aboubacar Siddikh has posted a number of incredible Bembeya videos, my favorite of which is:

It's a great bluesy solo with one hilarious moment...

I'd actually downloaded that clip and hadn't watched it. Thanks for getting me to enjoy it. Aboubacar Siddikh has great audio files, too. Alhaji Ayinla Omowura & His Apala Group, Cardinal Rex Jim Lawson and a great guitar piece called Kamulanga by Dr. Nico and African Jazz. You've probably already seen the stuff on RadioAfrica1's YouTube channel?
