Yeelen Brightness by Souleymane Cissé ( Visual )
7 editions published between 1987 and 2003 in Bambara and held by 616 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A film adaptation of one of the great oral epics of the Bambara people, set during the powerful Mali Empire of the 13th century. Tells the story of Nianankoro, a young Bambara warrior destined to destroy a corrupt older society, the secret Komo cult, and with it his father, and, inevitably, himself. The climactic flash of light which floods the screen at the film's end ushers in a new purified world order and captures the Bambara belief in time as circular, not linear, always returning to that initial "brightness" which created the world

Remembering Weather Report by Miroslav Vitous ( Recording )
12 editions published in 2009 in 3 languages and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Miroslav Vitous war 1970 Gründungsmitglied der Jazzrockband Weather Report, der wichtigste Fusion-Formation der 1970er- und -80er-Jahre. äWenn Vitous sich an Weather Report erinnert, sind das aber dennoch keineswegs ungetrübt freudige Gedanken, vielmehr bedauert er heute noch, dass die Superband nach seinem umstrittenen Abgang die Massentauglichkeit suchte und dafür ihre ursprünglich experimentellen Konzepte fallen liess ... Mit 'Remembering Weather Report' versucht Miroslav Vitous zu demonstrieren, wohin sich Weather Report hätten entwickeln können, wenn sie am ursprünglichen Musizier-Ideal, am Gedanken der Gleichberechtigung aller Instrumente festgehalten hätten. Er verzichtet völlig auf jegliche Elektrifizierung und entspinnt gemeinsam mit einer Reihe virtuoser Musiker ein dichtes Geflecht an freien Kollektivimprovisationen ... ein ganz besonderes Konzeptalbum, wenn man die (musik-)historischen Hintergründe kennt. Es spricht aber sehr für Miroslav Vitous, dass seine Musik auch ohne jeglichen gedanklichen Überbau sehr inspirierend wirkt und begeistertä (www.kulturzeitschrift.at)
