Man. This tape is killing me today. Senegalese mbalax-ish style acoustic music with amazing choir vocal responses back by beautifully produced ensemble of drums and massive torso-sized kalimba. Enjoy.

    Not a kalimba is a Gongomá, built with old saw blades.

  5. It’s a pity that A1 has been faded out. Way too short! Is the fade-out also on the cassette?

    I guess a little bit of “tassu” with some rumba box will enlighten my Friday a little bit after a rough Thursday night.
