Keletigui et ses Tambourinis were at the heart of Guinea’s state-sponsored musical explosion and cultural revolution and were the pioneers of the "authenticité" movement. Keletigui et ses Tambourinis were official ambassadors of Guinean music and travelled widely, which in the 1970s included tours to Berlin, Cuba, Moscow, and many destinations within Africa.

Their Syliphone recordings are reissued via Sterns and were among the first to be released by the independent nation's government. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
