The studio photographs of Sanlé Sory and his participation in the vibrant music scene in Bobo-Dioulasso, Burkina Faso, give us a picture of a cosmopolitan city shaping its independent identity in the 1960s through to the ’80s, the heyday of West African independence movements. Vintage photographs, seven-inch record sleeves and studio accessories are all reproduced in the most extensive portrayal to date of photography and music as key popular art forms with local, national and international resonance.
