Khalifa Gueye — Ruba
What’s going on with this fantastical journey through the world wide web of Senegalese mbalax. It’s a genre that’s been practiced in its modern form for a few decades now—ever since Youssou N’Dour and his cohorts in the 1970’s merged Cuban-inspired popular dance band music and its syrupy melodic sense with traditional sabar drumming and its bombastic, asymmetrical excitement. And I have over one hundred Mbalax tapes. But this one is extremely dynamic and I have no info about it so let me know what you think. Madou Diabate and Aziz Dieng are involved so you know it’s got steady hands at the wheel but I haven’t heard of Khalifa Gueye before.
