Ouza et les 4 Femmes dans le Vent –
Mbaana, Disques Griot 1977

Ouza, front

Disques Griot

It is almost six years ago I posted this lp by Ousmane
Diallo aka Ouza Diallo or Ouza. Delightful seventies Dakar sounds,
atmospheric stuff. It’s been quite a while we had us some Senegalese
music, better get it and realise I do not post this type of music enough.
Maybe if we find a bit more in the future, the next big recordfair is almost
arriving, another three and a half weeks and who knows what it shall
bring us this time. For now, listen to these beautiful songs
sung by these beautiful voices, I’m completely
captured, # 4 is my favourite..

  1. It’s a very lovely LP with all the Sorano ladies naming Fatou Thiam Mbaye Samb (the first lady playing with a modern orchestra instead of Kine Lam), the late Fatou Sakho, Khady Simel Diouf (love her voice),and Fatou Talla Ndiaye (wife of the late Laye M’Boup from Baobab). Back then, they were the most popular singers in the traditional music area with Ndiaga Mbaye, Khar Mbaye Madiaga, Diabou Seck, Kine Lam, Daro Mbaye, and so on… Personally, I discover this album back in Senegal when I was growing up there. My mother is a huge fan of traditonal music although she also loves Baobab, Number One, Star Band de Dakar, etc… If you could get more Senegalese LPs from the 70’s (God knows there are tons of them) and 80’s, don’t hesitate to post them. Keep up the good work and thanks once again.

      • Just wondering if you have the maxi single Helena by Bopol with Jacob Desvarieux in the arrangements and mixing and if you can Hasse Walli & Asamaan first LP called Modern Mbalax (highly recommended)
