Found a really nice copy of the first Mandingo Griot Society LP for $2.50 (!!!) the other day, it's even better than I remembered. There'svery little of it on Youtube, which is a surprise since it's a pretty beloved album.

i've been following that channel for ages... i was friends with the guy on facebook but he deleted his profile, i reckon he has over 500 senegalese music tapes, pretty bonkers...

mbalax, traditional musical genre from senegal, is one of my favorites...
i've been compiling all his tapes in playlists for easier listening pleasure so if u're interested just click my sig... or go here:
http://www.bit.do/ancestralwaves
 
waaw waaw, which u can hear them shouting in lots of songs, means yeah yeah, in wolof, language in which most of mbalax is sang... there's even some people stating that hip hop mc's descend from griots which are west african story tellers and most of mbalax singers are griots...

these instrumentals are bonkers!!! that watery bass, those psy synths, kick and snare sound like they're out of a 707, and the trademarked sabar to wrap it all together, this is genius...
