For today, I wanted to share with you “Diongoma“, a mesmerizing Afro Synth Funk Soul track from West Africa, composed by the mythical Senegalese musician “Youssou Madjiguène Ndour” and former singer of legendary African bands such as “Etoile de Dakar” or “Super Orchestre Rail Band du Buffet Hotel de la Gare de Bamako”.

This album was the first released by the artist out of Africa (it was recorded & mixed at the “Family Sound” recording studio in Paris in 1983 by Abdoulaye Soumare & Amadou Doukoure), and features great African & Caribbean musicians such as Moussa Cissokho, François N’Guessan, Roger Mballa, Roland Louis & Bruce Henderson.
