Dieuf-Dieul de Thiès

  • Aw Sa Yone Vol. 1 [Teranga Beat, 2013] **
  • Aw Sa Yone Vol. 2 [Teranga Beat, 2015] **

Consumer Guide Reviews:

Aw Sa Yone Vol. 1 [Teranga Beat, 2013]
Just exactly how many galvanic bands do you expect a city of 250,000 to power forward--to be specific, the Senegalese city that's already given us Karantamba and the Royal Band de Thiés? ("Na Binta," "Sibaye") **

Aw Sa Yone Vol. 2 [Teranga Beat, 2015]
They've reformed for a three-decades-late tour I hope I catch, but there were better mbalax bands and this is volume two for a reason ("Am Sa Waye," "Nianky") **
