hey kofi b, thanks for letting me know, i have fixed the links on those posts.
 
Hi, I think this is a great site and I have a question. I run a series of reportages on a music station in the Netherlands (see http://postcard.radio6.nl , in Dutch unfortunately) and I would like to do one about this blog. If you've any interest in that, please contact me at postcarddakar [at] gmail.com and we can take it from there. Hope to hear from you, best, Joost, Dakar.
 
thanks for the lovely collection and compils.
I went looking for some of the musicians, and ended here: http://luciomagano.wordpress.com/, a seemingly unending library of african disks for download. ideal complement of simon's introduction, I feel.
Thanks; I'll be back
 
Great work! Any more pre-rockstar Ali Farka Toure on tap? How about Celestine Ukwu?

Just downloaded the latest - and it's wonderful. Thanks. One question: was it supposed to download as one long mp3 rather than individual tracks?
 
is there a list of the songs on the praises and ballads set available? it is amazing...

many thanks,

jb
 
Echoing Kurt's post, is there any chance of having the downloads as individual songs rather than album length mp3's ? Otherwise, great work mate.
 
Wonderful blog. Spent some time in Dakar a few years ago and this mix reminds me so much of being in my brothers car, radio blaring, driving along the seafront as the fishing boats came in. Please keep posting.
