Star Band de Dakar – Star Band de Dakar,Soumbouya Musique 1980

Star Band de Dakar, front

What we have here is something quite special.
Some time ago we had ‘Etoile de Dakar’, now an LP from
before that time. This is ‘Star Band de Dakar’, already with
Youssou N’Dour but for instance also ‘Laba Sosseh’ sings his part.
Funny thing, track #3, ‘Danguele Fasso’ was written by
Larry Harlow. Youssou N’Dour sings on track 4 & 5.
Fantastic playing by Assane Thiam on ‘Tama’.
I’m sure we got some happy Global Groovers right now !

tracks;

1 Adioupe nar
2 Laye laye kaïra
3 Danguele fasso
4 Bouna n’diaye
5 Kelendi
6 Vali n’diaye

    By chance, would you have other LP’s of Sénégal, from this period?
    Like:Star Band de Dakar_vol.4, Orchestra Number One De Dakar,Orchestre Gorom, etc…

  3. Moos, About your Reggae posts. I guess this proves one point in the blog kingdom, STEP QUICKLY. What’s being offered one day could be gone the next. Just like life itself. How can one hope to store any of these goodies without a 500 gig drive? No disrespect to your rare African & other rare offerings of the Latin countries, but I’m so focused on Samba & MPB that I don’t even have the time to sort through just that one country. Plus, it IS the role of someone who has heard a recording many, many times to ARTICULATE & translate fully the dimensions of the listen. Roll up your sleeves & get out there hit a homerun for your team. If you feel that what your presenting is worthy of my time, then please tell me why is worth my attention. It makes all the difference when someone can HIGHLIGHT various aspects of a session. I would like to try some of your offerings, but your wording could help guide me a little more. OK?

  5. I’m curious to learn more about the African groove, but the continent is so large & the styles are so varied I don’t know where to start. Since you have a grasp of this land, then please try to grade these in way that’s a little more understandable. Perhaps, a top 20 list of all time favs. It might help me to discover a few of the many rarities that your posting. Also, the styles change from area to area. I myself, do not long tracks that take 15 minutes to unfold, so artists like Fila put me to sleep. I prefer shorter, punchier songwriting & shorter LP’s over longer ones. So please bear these things in mind when your presenting these gems. Distinctions made by you help your listen make a better choice.

  7. Justin,

    African music comes in many styles,
    I understand you don’t know where to start.
    The music I post is worth listening to without exeption in my humble opinion and I prefer not to talk to much. I ‘ll try to describe it a little better but I find that to be quite difficult at times. African songs often take around 10 or 12 minutes, they take you on a journey, and let your mind drift away on spiritual beats and get in a certain trance, you can’t expect that to happen in 3 minutes. It is something you’ll get used to when listening more to it. I am glad the continent awakes your attention, it’s music deserves more respect throughout the world. In the near future I shall start a series of samplers to make people help choosing their favourites.
    Thanks Jus,
    Moos.

  9. Hi moos!
    Thx very much for the opportunity to learn more about African music and especially Senegalese music. My musical journey to Senegal started with Cheikl Lo, so i got some digging to do.

  11. Hey J Thyme,

    The fact that our kind host is generous enough to share this music with the world and take the time to convert the LP’s to MP3’s and get them posted online is a feat in itself. So please don’t complain about the way he presents things or how he chooses to run his blog. If you don’t like it then go someplace else and see if you could find another person out there giving stuff like this away. It amazes me that after getting all this great music there are still people who sit there and complain! Stop being greedy and give a thank you for a change.

  13. The depth and breadth of your knowledge of African popular music is astounding.
    Your enthusiasm and generosity make for an explosive mix.
    Thanks very much!!

  15. Hi Moos,<br /><br />Any chance you could re-up this? This particular Star Band release is hard to find on the interwebs right now.<br /><br />Thanks<br />1
