Various Senegal from K7s (2006-2)

training of mango producers in the Sédhiou region (see tracknr.9)

This is a follow up of the, about half a year ago posted, K7s radio shows (Senegal-1, 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 the unknown track by UCAS Jazz Band de Sedhiou
