i have that cd, sir victor uwaifo is amazing!!!

here's some Mbalax tapes from senegal circa 70's and 80's, i'm not the uploader but i compiled everything from that era in individual playlists tape by tape... it's one of my favorite music genre! the vocals might threw you off at first but after a few listens you realize the music doesn't really make sense without them...

Senegal Tapes 70's & 80's

 

also worth checking out these labels:

Analog Africa - Bandcamp

Teranga Beat - Bandcamp

Sahelsounds - Bandcamp
