FAC Alliance—Mariama



Face A

Face B

Guiggol Maayata

*—Super warbly tape alert. Apologies for the awesome, nearly unlistenable effect.

Rap from Guinea, steeped in that quintessential urban West African stew of hip-hop, soul, dancehall and traditional rhythms and sounds (FAC Alliance lists Fulani, Susu and Mandinka inspiration on their website). There might be a touch too much reggae at times for me but I'm captivated by the overall vibe Nondi K, Pap G and Mista X are repping here. Frank Bessem's great encyclopedia has some more background here.
