Victor Deme - 'Chapa Blues'

 (available from HarmoniaMundi 02087099500)

Oh what a joy this CD is, a debut from Victor Démé, a 46-year-old singer from Burkina Faso. His rich, warm voice is of the sort to give you goose bumps, mixed as it is with some delightful guitar playing and a rawness that just adds to its charm Very highly recommended.
