Mor Thiam - Ayo Ayo Nene

This horn-led piece is from Senegal, an area of Africa I'm now intrigued to find more about. Mor Thiam (father of popstar Akon) is a multi-instrumentalist of Dogon ethnicity, whose use of instruments such as the tamar and djembe is clear in the track's heavily-percussive elements.

Label: Rite Record Productions
Year: 1973
