African live albums are like service stations in the desert: they undoubtedly exist, but are hard to find. As the title already indicates, 'Bamako Nights: Live At Bar Bozo 1995' was recorded at Bar Bozo, a sultry night club in the centre of Bamako where the working class Malians gathered to admire their musical heroes. Guitar virtuoso Lobi Traore, then still an upcoming talent, packed the place week after week. Why, you will discover on 'Bamako Nights', a stunner of a live album filled with long-winded trance inducing songs. The African answer to Jimi Hendrix!
