5.0 out of 5 stars Cuban-Senes sound from another time and place, 23 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Vagabonde (Audio CD)
7 tracks from 1969 with Super Cap Vert, 3 tracks from 1973 with Star Band de Dakar and 2 tracks from 1980 with Number One de Dakar.
Far away recordings of early Senegalese music with a strong Cuban sound. Dreamy and evocative of a different time.
It has the sound of Youssou N'dour's early band Etoile de Dakar (well Mar Seck was first, but I'm trying to give a reference point for the sound).
Pape Seck, singer from the first Africando albums, appears on the later tracks. A very special album indeed.
The record label Teranga has some other great releases of obscure early Senegalese bands.
