DRIVING BALAPHONE AND KORA SOUNDS FROM WEST AFRICA
Minyanta, formerly known as Susso is the brainchild of the British bass player and record producer Huw Bennett. While traveling in Gambia, he was seized by the omnipresent Mandingo-music as well as the Gambian people’s hospitality. His guide and teacher in that world was Yusupha Suso, master on the Balafon. Bennett indulged in the local music culture, which led to the record Bani on Soundway Records. Bennett’s full bass in combination with percussion and drums, balafon and kora create a pumping base for their ecstatic melody lines.
