Last summer, I posted about the white whale Syliphone comp I got in Paris in August and now I just read that nearly the entirety of the Guinea’s Syliphone catalog has been digitized and is now being shared by the British Library. We’re talking over 7500 songs, in dozens of languages. This is an incredible resource for Afropop fans/scholars now. I’m already sampling through the various boogaloo songs in the catalog!

  1. Thank you so much for sharing this. After just listening to a couple random cuts, it’s clear that I’m gonna have to budget a lot of time. I like to think of it as travel time. Thank you again.
