Santana: Supernatural (6/15/1999)



CD / Arista / 19080-2 / US

Description: Studio album. Includes "Africa Bamba", credited to Ismaila Touré, Sixu Tidiane Touré, Carlos Santana, and Karl Perazzo. This song is a cover version of Touré Kunda's "Guerrilla" (from Salam), with some added lyrics.

In May 2000, Touré brothers and former Touré Kunda members Séta and Ousmane sued Carlos Santana for using the Touré Kunda song "Guerrilla" without properly crediting them as authors. The song originally appeared on Touré Kunda's 1990 album Salam, when Séta (formerly Hamidou) and Ousmane were both members along with Ismaila and Sixu Tidiane. The writing credits on Salam include all four brothers. "Africa Bamba" has a few additional words, and is credited to "I. Touré, S. Tidiane Touré, C. Santana & K. Perazzo", but not to Hamidou or Ousmane Touré. The legal action was apparently successful, as the BMI database now reflects Séta and Ousmane as authors of the song along with the others.

Kaoma: World Beat (12/1989)



LP / Epic / E-46010 / US
CD / Epic / EK-46010 / US

Description: Studio album, including the major international hit "Lambada". Several members of Touré Kunda's backing band from the Celluloid era left to form Kaoma, including Michel Abihssira, Chyco Roger Dru, and producer Jean-Claude Bonaventure. Other members for the first album were Monica Nogueira, Jacky Arconte, Loalwa Braz, and Fania Niang. The group later released Tribal Pursuit (7/8/1991) and A La Media Noche (11/10/1998). Chico and Roberta, the children featured in the video for Kaoma's "Lambada", released Frente A Frente (1990), which included Jean-Claude Bonaventure, Michel Abihssira, and Ben Belinga.

"Lambada" is credited to C. DeOliveira, but is derived from a song by the Bolivian group Los Kjarkas, "Llorando Se Fue", that was originally released on Canto A La Mujer De Mi Pueblo (1982). The World Beat insert acknowledges the contribution by members of Los Kjarkas:
"La Lambada comes from saya, a Bolivian folk music. Ulysse and Gonzalo Hermosa and Olivier Lorsac contributed to its realization."
