Assane Thiam: the Senegalese tama drummer who will make you ill. Crushing tension drum under arm, Thiam and his crew are producing the tightest sonics and world’s most super-dry rhythmic precision. Making melody of interlocking percussion. This is an extraordinary selection from an array of mbalax-oriented drum-god wank-fest tapes. Thiam made his name in Youssou N’Dour’s band and other on dozens of records and hundreds of shows with side and solo projects (plus he has played with oodles of well known pop musicians like Peter Gabriel and Paul Simon so, you know.)
