“From his studio in central Bobo-Dioulasso, photographer Sory Sanlé documented a nation’s transformation from colonial foothold to cosmopolitan oasis. Bobo Yéyé provides an intimate look into the landlocked nation’s pop culture explosion of the 1970s. Accompanying this 144-page hardbound monograph are 26 rare and evocative recordings spread over three albums by Bobo-Dioulasso’s musical titans: Volta Jazz, Dafra Star, Echo Del Africa, and Les Imbattables Leopards.
