Thanks, Barry!

I got this Les Ambassadeurs in a hair product store on 116th Street in Harlem
  Wed. 6/24/15 7:21pm Barry:

I don't know how the hair care products worked out, but the disc was fantastic. I miss searching out odd discs on the shelfs in NYC, though I did pick up a couple of great relatively recent Ethiopian discs at a small market in Chicago last year.
Avatar Wed. 6/24/15 7:22pm Gary:

Nice, Barry -- what area of Chicago? I haven't been there in a while, but I want to take another trip out there soon!
Avatar Wed. 6/24/15 7:26pm Gary:

I've posted this disc to Bodega Pop, so you can grab the whole thing: bodegapop.blogspot.com...
  Wed. 6/24/15 7:26pm Barry:

It was called the Kukulu Market, at 6129 North Broadway, on the opposite side of the street from the Ethiopian Diamond Restaurant. -Sorry for the delay; I was looking up the details. Small store, but nice selection of albums and DVDs.
Avatar Wed. 6/24/15 7:27pm ndbob:

ty Gary!
Avatar Wed. 6/24/15 7:27pm Gary:

That's awesome, Barry -- I'm writing down the address for the next time I go there. All of my Ethiopian CDs so far have come from Washington, DC

Hi Gary and friends! Updated avatar to show alien hanging out on my neck - He dearly wants to bust out, but we are going to blast him into oblivion. heh heh heh :-)
Avatar Wed. 6/24/15 7:37pm Gary:

Holly! May Sayon Camera's healing voice swizzle its way into your alien & surrounds
  Wed. 6/24/15 7:38pm Barry:

You're giving me some great suggestions for my Amazon wishlist. -That is, when Amazon has something. Fortunately, Youtube has some great stuff by Sayon Camera, even if the nearest thing to her Amazon could find was an "Align G3-GH Gimbal Model Kit."
Avatar Wed. 6/24/15 7:39pm Gary:

Oh, I will likely post this to Bodega Pop, Barry!
  Wed. 6/24/15 7:43pm Barry:

And for only $1,183.93, too. Quite the steal. I may have to buy several.

Anyone who likes Bembeya Jazz National has superlative taste.
Avatar Wed. 6/24/15 7:46pm Gary:

Yeah, these guys are terrific. Just read a passage from Wolfgang Bender's Sweet Mother describing Aboubacar Demba Camera's funeral last night

I wish I was in Vancouver! Or Seattle. Or Portland.

DJ Wow, who is from The Gambia, handed me this Manding Morry CD when I told him "I must -- *have to* have -- hip hop?

  Wed. 6/24/15 8:12pm peter:

this song is entirely too good
  Wed. 6/24/15 8:15pm Barry:

Fine piece. Really breathes, doesn't it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/24/15 8:23pm Holly in NC:

Cheikh Ndiguel lo is added to my list of things to play/sing around a campfire, even if nowhere else (see also very select Cat Stevens).
No shame & necessary campfire music = John Denver (all), Gorgon Lightfoot (some), and GD's American Beauty
Avatar Wed. 6/24/15 8:25pm Gary:

I'll post the whole album if you want, Holly -- it's pretty terrific!

Hope your summer's off to a nice start!
  Wed. 6/24/15 8:38pm Barry:

It's her first album. I've had it in my Amazon wishlist for a few months. :)
Avatar Wed. 6/24/15 8:48pm Gary:

@Tim: It's a hot one, but so far so good ... @Barry, I'm a bit hesitant to post it to BP just b/c it's so new and available in Amazon, which could get me in trouble ... but if you send me your email address ...
Avatar    Wed. 6/24/15 8:55pm hyde:

ok, i know none of this stuff tonight. (well, except Bembeya Jazz National)
Avatar Wed. 6/24/15 8:56pm Gary:

Hyde! Actually, you likely will know the band coming up after Coumba Gawlo
Avatar    Wed. 6/24/15 9:02pm hyde:

heh, yeah, this bunch i know too!
  Wed. 6/24/15 9:03pm Barry:

Gary, I've sent you my email address. (I'm on your BP list.)
Avatar Wed. 6/24/15 9:07pm Gary:

Aha -- okay, Barry, I'll get the album out to you!
  Wed. 6/24/15 9:08pm Barry:

Bay-o-bab.

Thanks very much for the album!

Barry, I see you wrote me a couple of years ago about the Asala Yousef album ... holy crap, but that's a great album -- I hope you DLed it!
  Wed. 6/24/15 9:35pm Barry:

I've got a pretty good collection of older stuff from Nigeria, the Congo, some Guinea Bissau, etc. Let me know if you're interested via email.
Avatar Wed. 6/24/15 9:36pm Gary:

I'm interested!

Howdy, Sean!
  Wed. 6/24/15 9:51pm Barry:

Could almost pass for Super Djata, though Zani Diabate would be wilder. Really neat stuff.
