Following to this former article, I wanted to share with you for today “Kantintin“, an epic mind-blowing Psychedelic Afro Folk Jazz Funk Fusion track, taken from the 4th album of the Gambian band Guelewar Band Of Banjul recorded in 1982 and out on the mythical French record label “Sonafric“, hardest to find album of the band.

Leaded by the Gambian composer & musician Laaye N’Gom, the group included many mythical Gambian & Senegalese musicians, as Pape Abdou Aziz Seck who arranged the titles of this album.

More, it was recorded with the help of the composer & musician Gora M’Baye (vocals) and the guitarist Pape Abdou Aziz Seck (arrangements), who were part of another legendary Gambian band, “Dieuf Dieul De Thies“.

Cherry on the cake : this gorgeous cover art painted by Moussa Diop – Enjoy !
