Number One de Dakar ’83 — Vol. 3 Al Thiaka
1970s/80s Senegalese mbalax rarely gets old to me. Is it the dusty electric guitar expositions? these soulful, acrobatic vocals? the jazzily-phrased yet kick-out-the-jams, bombastic drum stabs? I have only listened to this 1.5 times but that was enough to warrant sharing this lesser traded gem by a classic ensemble of the Dakar scene.

Wonderful, thank you !
An album that I was looking for. It wasn’t like the Number One from the mid 70’s (which can be understood since Youssou N’Dour was building a solid reputation in terms of Mbalax back then), but it’s still worth listening to.
It would be much apprecitated from my side if Vol 4, which I believe was their last album before they split up was posted.
