Orchestre Régional De Kayes

After the 1960 independence, the Orchestre Regional de Kayes was started in order to reinvigorate the local cultures from the Mand and the Kasso regions and to turn some traditional themes into modern songs. Under the guidance of bandleader Harouna Barry, it evolved into one of Mali's finest orchestras.

In the early 1970s, like most modern bands of Mali, the orchestra evolved into L´orchestre Sidi Yassa De Kayes, named after Sidi Yassa, a late great singer. In 1977, they released one eponymous LP on the legendary Mali Kunkan collection.
