Boomkat product review for:

karantamba - Ndigal

**Gatefold double LP with extensive liner notes and photographs** Teranga Beat focus on one of West Africa's most celebrated guitarist/composer/arrangers, "Sweet Fingers" Bai Janha, band leader of Black Star, Whales Band, Fabulous Eagles & Supreme Eagles, and not least the legendary Guellewar. 'Ndigal' documents a previously unreleased performance, leading the Karantamba school of musicians on a mesmerizing session of compelling percussive polyrhythms and twirling, chatty guitar suffused with spirit-raising vocals, all recorded at "Sangomar" club on 16th August, 1984. "In the '60s and early '70s the popular music of this corner of West Africa (Senegal, Mali, Gambia & Guinea), was dominated by Latin American, Cuban, Congolese, Rock 'N' Roll, R & B and Western Music. At this time, Bai and his group and the Super Eagles underwent a radical change of music direction. They took up the fight to move away from foreign music & were the first to incorporate and popularize authentic Gambian music, in articular Kora & Mbalax music. Bai and his group the Super Alligators together with the Super Eagles were the pioneers and innovators of Mbalax & Afro-Manding sounds, these forms being the roots of Sene-Gambia & Mali's musical traditions. The public reaction to this positive stand rooted in the Manding Empire, when their forbears struggled against colonialism, exploitation & slavery, was immense and far-reaching." If you were feeling Mark Ernestus's recent Ndagga 12" this is well recommended!
