A really well done compilation – the first of what looks to be a great label from Dakar! This well researched. fully annotated collection brings together rare work by Idrissa Diop – a great range of early 70s material done before his relocation to France. lots of it with a great blend of Senegalese and Cuban elements! The rhythms are wonderful – really spinning out in these hypnotic ways. and often encouraging a bit of descarga-like jamming from the musicians. especially on the longer tracks – and the full notes in the set really helps put the music in context. Titles include -Caridad-. -Kaele-. -Massani Cisse-. -Fonkale Garape-. -Gueth-. -Yaye Boye-. -Cintorita-. and -Dioubo-.
