Aminta Ndiaye




Singer Souleymane Faye has been around for years as a member of Xalam and later intermittent solo records and comebacks with standing engagements at key Dakar mbalax landmarks like Just 4 You. This veers off from the mbalax norm into a polished cosmopolitan synthy smooth pop blend. Modern lovers rejoice for this soulful grown-n-sexy Senegal funk. This 1991 recording is for keyboard and electronic vibe enthusiasts (track 3 is weak though, might steer clear of that one).

    What’s ‘Just 4 You’? Sounds interesting. I’m on the look out for any Dakar Mbalax Landmarks, so if anyone has any recommendations, let me know.
