Obscure pearl coming from Burkina Faso, West African country (Upper Volta at time). L'Orchestre Afro Soul System group was formed in the capital Ouagadougou in the mid-70s by local musicians and also from Cameroon, Ivory Coast. They released two single until break up at the beginning of the next decade, and some of those present songs in recent compilations.
Post here the first single, with the presence of the singer Compaore Yousouf. It is divided between short tracks "Adb san mi yele" and "Liguidi", the former being more directed to garage/ psychedelic rock, with catchy rhythms and chorus (local language) and good guitar solo, accompanied by organ. In Liguidi we hear more influences of local rhythms, as waraba, and percussion work.
