Details / Info
Very rare French 7inch by Le Diamono -later known as Super Diamono de Dakar-, they featured many major Senegalese artists like Ismael Lo, Omar Pene etc. First track is from their debut album released in 1975. This is one of the foremost bands of the era, along with Baobab, Etoile de Dakar, Thies or Ifang Bondi. Fantastic early M'Balax music with psychedelic moments!!
Sleeve has some stains, dirt and edge wear but still looks nice. Record is quite clean but plays with important surface noise due to the poor recording / pressing quality.
