GuelewarHalleli N'Dakarou ... CD
Teranga Beat (Senegal), 1982. New Copy .... $19.99
A great live recording of Banjul, Gambia's Guelewar group – captured at the Canari Club de Kaolack in Senegal in 1982! Guelewar is considered one of the more experimental groups of the region, but that's not to say that there sound is any less hypnotic or danceable – it's certainly both those things! The instrumentation is uncommon, and that's a blessing and a highlight of this excellent material. It's got some traditional compositions and inspiration, as filtered through Afro Funk & psychedelia – played with killer drums and percussion, passionate lead and group vocals, guitar, bass and the wildcard element – Mini-Moog, a spacier foil to an otherwise fairly earthy approach! Really cool stuff and very well recorded – it sounds great! Titles include "Yaye Ramoutoulaye", "Bala Jigi", "Tara", "Sanehmentereng", "Ouvaryea", "Halleli N'Dakarou N'Diaye", "Cilss", "President Jawara-Abdou Diouf", "Cheddo" and "Werr Tullali Barr". CD

Mar SeckVagabonde – From Super Cap Vert To Number One – Unreleased Recordings 1969 to 1980 ... CD
Teranga Beat (Senegal), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy .... $18.99
Incredible live performances from this legendary Senegalese singer – a vocalist with a sensibility that goes way past the boundaries of language and culture – with a sound so expressive, we have to keep reminding ourselves we can't understand the lyrics of the songs! Mar Seck was a true treasure in Senegalese music – a vocalist whose presence instantly pushed the music forward, as you'll hear here in the album's amazing recordings. Senegalese sounds are always striking, but Seck's vocals really give them a strong focus that we've never heard this well before – a lead presence that is beautifully blended into the instrumental accompaniment on the tracks – which comes from the groups Super Cap-Vert, Star Band De Dakar, and Number One De Dakar. The package is very well done, with personal notes and an interview as well – and titles include "Mini Compay", "Sibouten", "Sama Dialy", "Taba Yo Simo", "Borom Gal", and "Tira Tira". CD
Also available Vagabonde – From Super Cap Vert To Number One – Unreleased Recordings 1969 to 1980 ... LP 34.99

New Idrissa Diop & Cheikh Tidiane TallDiamonoye Tiopite L'Epoque De L'Evolution ... CD
Teranga Beat (Senegal), Late 60s-Mid 70s. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
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". CD

New KarantambaNdigal ... LP
Teranga Beat (Senegal), 1984. New Copy 2LP Gatefold .... Out Of Stock
Never-heard sounds from Karantamba – a rare live performance from the mid 80s, recorded in a small nightclub in Senegal – and featuring a tripped-out group led by Bai Janha – the creative force behind Guelewar and Supreme Eagles! The sound is a lot more psychedelic than most other African music of the 80s – with a strong emphasis on extended guitar parts that are dripping with really cool sounds – mixed with lots of live percussion that really preserves a rootsy, earthy quality to the music! At a time when so many others were going for world music crossover sounds, these guys really keep things real – especially in the intimate live setting of the performance. Titles include "Sama Yai", "Gore Nga", "Na Dinding Fatty", "Ndigal", "Satay Muso", and "Linga Ham". Great notes and images, too – like other high-quality releases on this label!

New Dieuf Dieul De ThiesAw Sa Yone Vol 1 (2013 Record Store Day Release) ... CD
Teranga Beat (Senegal), 1981. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Amazing sounds from Senegal – a group working here with a trio of singers and some mighty great guitar from Papa Seck – all wrapped up into a groove that mixes the earthy with the trippy! The rhythms bump around with some really hypnotic elements, and often wrap the guitar right around the percussion – while the vocals then blast out with an unexpected sense of power and surprise! Titles include "Na Binta", "Aling Na Djimbe", "Yande", "Ndiguele", and "Mariama Yayou Salam". CD
