Etoile de Dakar – Cely (Senegal, 1978, M. Diaw )

For today, I wanted to share with you “Cely“, a gorgeous Psychedelic Afro Latin Funk Psychedelic Mbalax Fusion Jazz gem with dreamy voices, catchy guitars & deep saxophone parts, first version ever of this all-time African anthem covered countless times, recorded in 1973 by the legendary Senegalese Orchestra “Etoile de Dakar” that included great names as the mythical musician & composer Youssou Madjiguène Ndour (this album was his first ever credited appearance as a singer !).

This album, as many of the greatest early Senegalese ones (such as Orchestra Baobab ones), was recorded at the well-known Jandeer Night Club in Dakar (Senegal), one of the only few places musicians could lent at the times all the musical instruments & equipments they didn’t have themselves – Enjoy !
