1. Product Details

Analog Africa in partnership with Teranga Beat the current leading label for Senegalese music proudly offers an insight into the musical adventures that were taking place in the major Senegalese cities during the 60s and 70s. This compilation reflects the unique fusions of funk mbalax son cubano and Mandingue guitar sounds that transformed Dakar into West Africas most vibrant city. The creation of Senegal 70 began in 2009 when Teranga Beat founder Adamantios Kafetzis travelled from Greece to Senegal to digitize the musical treasures he had discovered in the Senegalese city of This - reel tapes recorded by sound engineer Moussa Diallo who had spent the previous four decades immortalizing bands that performed in his legendary Sangomar club. Three-hundred Senegalese songs that nobody had ever heard before were discovered five of them were selected for this compilation and appear alongside seven other tracks from the era all compiled by Analog Africa founder Samy Ben Redjeb in cooperation with Kafetzis. Thanks to its history of outside influences Senegal - the westernmost country in Africa - became a musical melting pot. Urban dance bands swiftly embraced son montuno from Cuba jazz from New Orleans and American soul tunes intuitively merging them with local styles. The seminal Afro-Cuban group Star Band de Dakar formed in 1960 and the 1970s brought a new generation of stellar bands including Le Sahel Orchestre Laye Thiam Number One de Dakar Orchestra Baobab Dieuf-Dieul de This and Xalam 1 who fused traditional Senegalese percussion instruments with organs and keyboards. Dakar soon began attracting international stars. The Jackson 5 James Brown Tabou Combo Haiti Celia Cruz Cuba and an array of African stars like Tabu Ley Rochereau Congo Manu
