Anoman Brouh Felix

In the mid 70's, the recording industry in Ivory Coast was extremely prolific, led by many famous labels such as La Societe Ivoiriene du Disque, Badmos, Safie Deen and, at last but not least, the great Djima Records Label (remember Kante Manfila ?).

Anoman Brouh Felix, a famous singer from Adzopé (a small village in the region of Agnéby) released several interesting 7" during this period, which the one i decided to make you discover here, that contains one beautiful ballad on the A Side, "Dans Tes Bras, Je suis Bien"

This track is dedicated to my beloved Soum

This track from the famous Wrinkars Experience band, Fuel For Love (A true hit at the time !), is dedicated to what is happening now in Nigeria, the "holy" war between Christian and Muslim people.

Please, put the weapons down, religion should never be a cause of civil murders..
