Following this former post, I wanted to share with you for today « Bilongo », an outstanding Tropical Guaguanco Salsa Latin track from the French West Indies (Martinique), taken from the first album of the legendary musician, painter, sculptor and ceramist Henri Guedon, considered as the grandfather of modern music from French Antilles, and backed by his band « La Contesta ».

This record came out in 1972 on the record label « Aux Ondes », subdivision of the mythical West Indian record company « Celini Disques » – Enjoy !
