The Year of The Salia Koroma Vignette
Happy 2010, ye Happy Few!
As the heading to this post makes clear, I’ll try to make this year what I’ve chosen to call the “Year of the S.K. Vignette.” The vignettes I’m referring to are the numerous short recordings Salia did for some international and local Sierra Leonean recording houses from the 1940s to the early 1970s. We shall have time and space to discuss the ‘circumstances’ and contexts of these gems.
May these gems increase your happiness, happy as you already are!
