This track is taken from the lp "L' Epoque De L' Evolution" by Idrissa Diop & Cheikh Tidiane Tall. http://www.discogs.com/Idrissa-Diop-L...

Idrissa Diop (Idy) grew up in the Guelle Tappé neighborhood of Dakar and began playing music when he was just 8 years old; he formed his first band at 13 and recorded his first solo effort, 'Dioubo' (Peace) at 19, a subtle blend of traditional Senegalese and Latin music.

Under the wing of the impresario Bass Goumbala the band Sahel was formed, a grouping of talented Senegalese musicians, which included Idy along with producer Moussa Diallo who together recorded the L.P. Bamba, in which Latin and Senegalese music were fused to create the first strains of Mbalax (pronounced balach), the sounds from which went on to inspire noted talents such as Youssou N'dour, Thione Seck and Omar Pene.

Following this accomplishment Idy went on to record the Orchestre Cheikh Tall & Idrissa Diope, played with the aforementioned Cheikh Tall, one of the most highly respected keys players in Senegal, and which was produced by Ibra Kasse in a further fusion of Mbalax and Latin.

The first release on the Teranga Beat imprint is a compilation of tracks from the aforementioned L.P.s alongside an array of unreleased material recorded by the band Sahel.
