referencing Halleli N' Dakarou, 2xLP, TBLP 014
Teranga Beat proudly presents legendary group Guelewar from Banjul, Gambia. Amongst the most experimental, psychedelic bands out of Africa, Guelewar offer a unique sound and instrumentation, mixing traditional compositions with modern instruments such as the Mini-Moog. The Alligators was a group led by Bai Janha who was the most important musician from Gambia. The Alligators later became Guelewar when Bai began to collaborate with Laye N'Gom. Guelewar fused a blend of bougaraboo and saourouba mixed with soul and funk and were heavily influenced by traditional singer Moussa N'Gom. For a decade, Guelewar was the biggest influence in the region of Sene-Gambian music. Here, on their last recording, live in the Canari Club de Kaolack, Senegal, 1982, the 12 members guide you to another level. Housed in a lavish gatefold sleeve with full-color innersleeves, this double LP version includes liner notes and historic photographs outlining the beautiful story of this exceptional band from this distinctive West African country -- Gambia.
