For today, I wanted to share with you “Mbaye Sasu“, an incredible deep beautiful West African Psychedelic Mbalax Fusion Jazz Funk track, taken from the first album of the Senegalese band “Le Xalam” founded in 1965 by the songwriter & guitarist Sakhir Thiam.

By the time, the members of the group have changed several times, including legendary artists as Idrissa Diop, Cheikh Tidiane Tall and Thierno Koité.

This LP includes the following musicians :

Georges Dieng (solo Guitar) ;

Henry Guillabert (Organ) ;

Moussa Diongue (Vocals) ;

Abdou Mboup (Percussion);

Prosper Niang (Drums);

Tonia Lo (Saxophone, Vocals) ;

Cheikh Diop (Trumpet) ;

Jean-Pierre Gandour (Guitar, Vocals) ;

Recorded live in June 1975 at “Le Sangomar” night club in the city of Thies, you can really feel you can really feel a special energy emanating from this beautiful & album – Highly recommended, enjoy !
