Victor Démmé - Victor Démmé

The first commercial vinyl edition of this classic of modern African music, from Burkinab musician and singer-songwriter Victor Démé. The album is a unique mosaic of folk blues melodies, Latin influences, salsa and flamenco.

After a 30-year career in Burkina Faso, Deme finally released his first album aged 46. In 2007, with the help of journalist David Commeillas and of Soundicate’s activists, they founded the label Chapa Blues Records to promote Victor’s music. The singer started to work on his album in the small studio at the back of his artist residence in Ouagadougou, the capital of Burkina Faso. The studio is no more than two rooms separated by a truck windshield and equipped with a 16- track console, but it has become the rallying point of numerous talented artists.

“His voice is warm and slightly husky and his songs are splendidly lyrical and supported by excellent guitar playing.” - Songlines (The Best Albums of 2008)
