Moussa Ngom et le Group Talibey – Bajen Yandeh (Ngom)
This is from Senegal… I don’t know much about it (found at the local african drum shop). Mbalax is so hugely popular in Dakar and waay beyond it at least deserves more attention than the zero tapes I’ve shared thus far. I like this particular example, it’s a little more distinctive than your average electrified praise-y pop jams. But, again, I not the expert here. Youssou N’Dour’s early recordings might be a good place to start.

Thanks for sharing the music thursdayborn. Blessing to you.
very good artist
thanks for the comments!
Moussa Ngom has a long career behind him.
He’s from gambia and was once mentioned to be minister of culture of that land.
He made k7 with Thione Seck and was a singer with Super Diamono.
Moussa NGom is the best musician in West Africa and one of the best in the entire Africa… That’s my opinion. Through his music, he conveys what he believes, the African reality and the truth. Remember, that when a musician is very truthful and always hits the point it is will be hard for him to gather a big crowd behind him. But listen his music, try to understand what his saying within the African context and culture, you will see the real Moussa Ngom… You will like him. His music always reminds me the African reality and vision. He is a man of culture, a man of vision and belief. He is an artist; the way an artist should be. Again this is my opinion.
In many ways Moussa Ngom & Le Group Talibey epitomise Senegales and Gambian music. Although this tape is not of great sonic quality, the music and Moussa’s distinctive voice are simply amazing. This man captured my heart in the same way as the other greats of thos music; Thione Seck, Assane Ndiaye, Yves Niang and Pape Diouf. It is such a rare pleasure to find him here on your excellent blog. Thank you so much for the ear treats! – Respect…..Max
