This sucker may have opened up an entirely new can of worms. This I know: the music is from Senegal, is highly rhythmic and very intense. To quote the poster at Awesome Tapes From Africa (who also happens to have reissued the LP), the first song, "Dieuleul Dieuleul", is "completely insane". True, it is. He/She also described "an aggressive verbal flow thought to presage rap". I was thinking just that. Really.
