Robinson & Compagnie (1991)



Robinson & Cie - CD / Cent Pour Cent / 50205 / France (Distribution: CA 808)

Video releases: VHS and DVD

Description: Film directed by Jacques Colombat, with orchestral music score by René-Marc Bini. The soundtrack album includes Ismaila ("Ismael") Touré performing percussion and vocals with Fede Diaby on "Du Rêve À La Réalité" (credited on CD insert) and "Le Londres De Vendredi" (not credited on CD insert). René-Marc's Web site (see link below) confirms that they are on "Le Londres De Vendredi", and that this is the "Ismael" Touré of Touré Kunda.

From René-Marc Bini - Robinson & Compagnie:
Fin 88, je venais de finir 50 concerts à La Villette avec le grand Jacquot (Higelin).
J'ai préféré décliner la proposition de partir en tournée,
pour attaquer ma première musique de long métrage entièrement symphonique.
J'avais tellement envie de bien faire que je mis presque 3 mois à écrire 45 minutes de musique !
Enregistrement à Ferber avec Didier Lizé.
Ce fut aussi l'occasion de croiser les Touré Kunda, qui passaient par là
(on avait fait un boeuf dans un fête un soir avec Ismaël),
et avec qui je faillis dans la foulée partir en tournée tout autour du monde.
Mais c'est une autre histoire...
