Catalog no.: PMGLP0000047

Item ID: 440708

At last, here's a reissue of the third album by the Guelewar Band Of Banjul, a group that presented a new approach to the traditional Sene-Gambian music, known today as the Afro-Manding-Sound. The album was first released by the French Discafrique label in 1981. An explosive mix of soul and funk with local rhythms like Boogaraboo and Ndaga combined with a defiant insistence on singing in their local language Wolof. They certainly blew a young Youssou N'dour away as he cites them as his biggest influence.

Also available: WARTEEF JIGGEN (CD).

BETA YAMA GROUP - FREE LOVE

BETA YAMA GROUP - FREE LOVE

It's hard to get a handle on Nigerian musicians Nash Dodoo, Charlie Cuul and Jonas Caulley. In 1980 they released an album of face-melting gospel boogie as the BML chapels. And in the same year, calling themselves the Beta Yama Group, they put out 'Free Love', a belated ... read more »

OYEWOLE, EJI - ME & YOU

A bona-fide Nigerian prince and probably the only musician to have ever played with Fela Kuti, Miles Davis and Bob Marley, Eji Oyewole combined African Highlife with western jazz to create a hybrid so that was as smooth as it was funky. His first album, 'Charity Begins At ... read more »
