Salif Keita et les Ambassadeurs Internationaux
Badmos International Records 1981

Good morning, remember Salif Keita and les Ambassadeurs ?
we saw him on various earlier occasions but it has been a while.
Catching up we start with this 1981 album. After working with
the Super Rail Band the name was changed in Les Ambassadeurs.
Delightful mandingo sound of which we have a couple unposted.
Soon to be followed ..

Goeiemorgen, het is al te lang geleden dat we platen hadden
met Salif Keita en les Ambassadeurs. De achterstand wat inha-
lend beginnen we met deze plaat uit 1981. Nadat hij werkte
met de Super Rail Band veranderden ze de naam is Les
Ambassadeurs. Heerlijke mandingo sound. Er zijn nog
enkele albums ongepost. Deze zullen spoedig
volgen. Luister naar Salif keita ..
