Le Diamono – M’Diaye Kandiourane (Senegal, 1975, Soul Posters/Musiclub)

For today, I wanted to share with you “M’Diaye Kandiourane“, a stunning psychedelic Afro Mbalax Soul Funk Jazz track, recorded by the mythical Senegalese band Le Diamono (or “Super Diamono” or “Super Diamono de Dakar“) founded by the mythical composer & musicien Omar Pene.

This song only appears on that single out in 1975 and distributed only in Senegal & France at the time, and that is probably the first recorded of the group.

This song tells the story of three young people who left the village of M’beri in search of fortune, but who found nothing but disappointment along the way.

This debut single of the band is virtually impossible to find nowadays, hope you’ll like it – Enjoy !
