Guelewar: Halleli N'Dakarou
A 1982 live mash of psychedelia and moog madness from Gambian band Guelewar
A live mash of psychedelia and moog madness from Gambian band Guelewar. Formerly known as The Alligators, a group led by Bai Janha, a leading light on the Gambian music scene, the band became Guelewar when Janha was joined by Laye N'Gom. Guelewar fused the Bougaraboo and Saourouba sounds with soul and funk, with a nod towards Gambian traditional singer Moussa N'Gom. Guelewar was the biggest band on the Sene-Gambian music scene. This is their last recording, live at the Canari Club de Kaolack in Senegal in 1982.
