Super Etoile de Dakar – Djamil vol. 6, Saprom 1983

Super Etoile de Dakar, Djamil, front, cd size

Second in line is Vol. 6, the line-up on this casette is different
from vol. 1. If any one can help us out here, we see Yamar Thiam
playing ‘Tama’ on vol. 1 and we see Assane Thiam playing ‘Tama’
on vol. 6. Assane we know, is Yamar his brother, or maybe himself ?
Overall, this is a great casette, I’ll quote the ‘Rough Guide’:

“Youssou N’Dour et Super Étoile de Dakar:

Vols 1 – 16 ( local casettes )

N’Dour and his trusted cohorts take Dakar street grooves
with strong Latin retentions to the portals of international
superstar collaboration, via some wild, wacky and continually
surprising routes. Vols 6, 7 and 10 are particularly strong.
Vol 8, heavily remixed, became the ‘Immigrés’ CD. But the music
works best as one extraordinary stream of consciousness.
Most of it is impossible to find, but a multi cd compilation,
planned for 2000, could become one of the great albums.”
( my copy of ‘Rough Guide’ is a reprint of the 1999 edition )

Well, didn’t know I was that lucky, but now you are too.

tracks;

1 Mbarguethe
2 Ferridigua
3 Alboury
4 Djamil
5 Yalla

One last thing, track # 5, ‘Yalla’, takes over 11 minutes
while the tape inlay says 6’39, a minor incident.

  1. Hi Moos!
    Thank you very much for sharing these rarities.
    I’m looking for old sounds of Sénégal, continually…

    Greetings!

  3. Hello Moos,
    What a shoot of great post. Many Thanks.
    I believe, that Yamar Thiam is Assane uncle (by his mother). He was played with Canari de Kaolack (we can listen the singer singing his name in their Sutukun version). And after he was part of the Etoile 2000 short adventure.
    He’s now living in Finland (like Rhane Diallo?).
    I think, Super Etoile II de Dakar was something like a Super Etoile side project, with a different line up.
    Thanks again for these gems.
