Description

Aw Sa Yone Vol. 2 on LP

Gatefold double LP version. Includes download code. Teranga Beat proudly presents the second volume of previously unreleased early-'80s recordings by Senegalese band Dieuf-Dieul de Thies, demonstrating their ability to move from Mbalax to Afro-Cuban and Afro-jazz ballads without losing any of their original psychedelic sound and unique identity. Five out of these seven tracks feature Bassirou Sarr, a truly exceptional singer. Whether he's singing a ballad or some explosive Mbalax, his voice is always full of emotion. One of the two other tunes, a great Latin cover sung by Assane Camara, shows the true skill of Dieuf-Dieul; the other, a powerful Mbalax track sung by the great griot Gora Mbaye, displays his strong links to the tradition of Senegal. These three singers, together with bandleader and guitarist Pape Seck, combined traditional rhythms from all the regions of Senegal with fuzz guitars, horn sections, and hallucinatory percussion to create an explosive mixture of electric psychedelia and the wisdom of local musical traditions. Aw Sa Yone Vol. 2 includes the rest of the recordings from the early-'80s session featured on Vol. 1 (TBCD 017CD, 2013), plus three tracks from a lost 1981 recording.
