2008 release. Syllart`s mighty African Pearls collection strikes back with an essential volume dedicated to the funky sounds of `70s Sénégal. More than any other countries in West Africa, Sénégal was strongly influenced by Cuban music largely played by the ORTS (Radio Sénégal). Widely circulated, this Afro-Cuban repertoire stands at the bottom of modern Senegalese music. Links between Dakar and Habana seem natural as evidenced by recordings of orchestras such as Star Band de Dakar or Orchestra Baobab and many bands within this musical constellation. The impact of Star Band is pivotal as well as the monikers "stars" and "étoiles" in the history of modern Senegalese music with bands such as Youssou N`Dour`s Super Etoile, Star Number One, etc. James Brown`s 1975 Dakar visit set the country on fire, and opened a new era in music. As a result, "Kelen ati leen," a Wolof folk tale, shows the Orchestra Baobab`s mighty funk vision driven by Cissoko`s horn arrangements. Released on the wonderful Visage Du Sénégal, part of a series of 5 LPs released in 1975 thru Buur Records, it epitomizes a perfect Senegalese groove and stands as Dakar`s ultimate funk statement. Includes a 24-page booklet in English and French. Produced by Ibrahima Sylla, liner notes by Florent Mazzoleni. Other artists include: Xalam, Super Diamono de Dakar, Guelawar, Watto Siita, N`Guewel, Ifang Bondi, Ouza, Etoile 2000, and Diarama de St Louis
