Number One du Senegal – Jiko -Nafissatu Njaay 1980

Number One du Senegal, front

in disguise

Na twee super gezellige try-outs, zogezegd, moeten we komende
zaterdag echt nog een keertje profiteren. Het wordt drukkend warm,
er kan een buitje vallen maar dat mag de pret niet drukken. Ik wil
je bij deze dan ook uitnodigen naar het Vondelpark te komen.
Vanaf zo’n 15.00 uur strijk ik neer onder de grote bomen naast
het standbeeld van Joost van den Vondel. Met de Global Groove’s
Mobile Soundsystem probeer ik dan het tropisch zwetende sfeertje
verder af te maken. Afrikaanse klanken, broeierige latin grooves,
Calypso en reggae, oude jazz en zigeuner muziek, van alles wat.
Als je een stukje naar beneden scrollt, vind je ‘n filmpje van laatst.

Saturday the 10th of september is going to be one of this summers
last hot days. It will be one of the last opportunity’s we’ll have
to go to the park and chill out under the blue/grey sky. Bring some
food and drinks and join us at the Amsterdam Vondelpark. From
around 15.00 hrs. the Global Groove’s Mobile Soundsystem will be
playing from underneath the big trees next to Vondel’s statue. Be my
guest and come around if you’re near.

From 1980 wit Papa Seck, Doudou Sow, Mar Seck, Magatte
N’Diaye, Malick Hann, Alioune Diallo, Amadou Madani Tall,
Mamane Fall, Ally Penda, Paja Diop, Paja Seck, Yakhya Fall,
Babacar Fall and Moustapha N’Diaye. One of Senegals legendary
groups from that era. Class A material for collectors in the genre.
That sounds awful, no really this is stuff you don’t want to miss !
Wonderful atmospheric sound of Dakars early eighties.

  1. Hi Moos!

    What stunning post!!! You know it’s been a long long time i’m looking for this album, i’m a fan of this group. For me, Number One is exceptional, it’s undoubtedly one of the best orchestras of the “La Belle Epoque” for not to say the best. It was composed of the finest voices of Senegal and extraordinary musicians with the great and incomparable Yakhya Fall (which i had the opportunity to meet) on the guitar solo, which for me is still the best guitarist in the country of Teranga.
    For a long time i wanted to listen to the tracks Kumba and Ngomar(i have the LP [1157])and to my surprise i had already heard the song Ngomar in poor quality under the title Saala Nder.
    Kumba song is terrible!!!

    Thank you so much for sharing this mega rare album. I’m very grateful to you.

    ps:My apologies but i think the last comment i had left was on a Star Band post; it’s just to say that i’m still connected to your blog regularly.

    Regards.

  6. Hi Moos:

    This comment is way overdue. Many heartfelt thanks for providing a sunshine-filled soundtrack to the Summer season (as meager as it was here!) for both myself and a host of close friends. Without your commitment to sharing this rare and wonderful music the world would surely be a poorer place. Please keep up the good work for as long as you find it rewarding.

    Kind regards from the Pacific NW.
