TERANGA BEAT proudly presents DIEUF-DIEUL de Thies in their second volume album. This multi-talented band demonstrates on this album its ability to cross over different kinds of music, from Mbalax to Afro-Cuban and Afro-Jazz ballads without loosing any tip from its original Psychedelic Sound with the fuzz guitars, strong horn sections and percussion, which gave to the band this unique identity.
Five out of seven overall tracks feature Bassirou Sarr, a truly exceptional singer. Whether in a ballad or some explosive Mbalax, Bassirou's voice is always full of emotion. One of the two remaining tunes, a great latin cover sung by Assane Camara, shows how good performers Dieuf-Dieul actually were and finally one powerful Mbalax track sung by the great Griot Gora Mbaye, displaying his strong links to the tradition of Senegal.
On this Vol.2 we proudly present the rest of their recorded tracks from the same session as the one featured on Vol.1 plus three tracks from a totally lost recording they did back in 1981. The double LP comes out in two editions, 300 limited copies on Silkscreen print cover with a large poster and the rest copies with a standard gatefold cover, both editions including an MP3 download code.
CD with a 20 page booklet including photos and liner notes outlining the amazing story of this lost treasure.
Delighted to announce that Dieuf-Dieul are back together after 32 years, preparing for their first international tour not only to prove that their fame was not an urban legend. Enjoy! (added: 2015-11-13 14:47:59 )
