Royal Band and Dieuf Dieul : Meanwhile In Thies / Dakar Sound - 9
Wederom prachtige CD op Dakar Sound met Senegalese muziek uit de jaren 70 en 80.  
The Royal Band de Thiès was formed by Mapathé `James` Gadiaga in 1972, after he had left a school band Cayor Rhythm de Thiès. He soon called upon singer Adama Seck `Secka` to join him. In their hometown Thiès, the second city of the country with more than 300,000 inhabitants, located around 70 kms East of Dakar, the Royal Band frequently performed in various clubs and venues, and recorded in Club Sangomar. Only occasionally they performed in Dakar.
They released a few cassettes and made it to reasonable fame in Senegal but never made it to international audience nor to an international release. Only a small in-crowd of Senegalese music fans was familiar with them until small Dutch label Dakar Sound released a number of their songs on their compilations. Their music is loved for the expressive, soulful vocals and the raw and funky rhythms. The Royal Band`s style of mbalax is quite recognisable.
