mangos from Senegal

As promised at the end of the previous post about Orchestra Baobab, more music from Senegal.

This is a follow up of the, about half a year ago posted, K7s radio shows (Guinee and Mali), which I catched again from the ConcertZender in 2006.

info from the radioshow:
For the African market cassettes are important - they are easy to duplicate and play. Musically it's interesting because often less concessions to Western tastes and pop influences are made. We go on a journey through a stack of cassettes from Senegal.

Listen to Assane Gaye with Mame Falou

  1. Nice selection. I was expecting the albums themselves. Actually, I'm interested in the El Hadj Ndiaye (Sigi), Baaba Maal (Farba), and Assane Gaye tapes (Mandou) if possible. Thanks
