Les Frères Guisse - Fama (African Folk Music)

This was the first release by Les Frères Guisse from Senegal who are still more or less active and released their last album in 2008 (Yakaar) which may still be available at various online traders. Some of their actual songs can be heard here at MySpace.

Enjoy this tape!

Orchestre African Fiesta Sukiza (African 90.628B)

I have to post something more before month's end. So why not another single from the African label? It's from 1972. And African Fiesta seems to play without Dr. Nico. The Orch. had several changes in line-up during that time.
By the way, enjoy!

Orchestre Les Kamale - Abissina 1&2 (African 91356)

Busy with moving and children I have to give another sign from my side - while others actually share so much fine music. Thank you to you all! I was ashamed by Afro Soul Descarga'S James Stewart, who recently shared 6 singles here in a row. I have to go on sharing one by one - when I'm ready and when I have something:

So here are Orch. Kamale again with a single from 1976. Enjoy!

L'Afrique Danse avec Mpongo Love (African 360.102)

Mpongo Love was one of the early successful female voices in Zaire's popular music. Born in 1956 she died already in 1990 suffering on cerebral miningitis. (More here at Tambour d'Afrique). Handicaped since her childhood she must have been a strong woman.

Here is her LP from 1977. Enjoy!
