Today’s sweeeeet sweet Senegalese rap (en fraÃƒÂ§ais). What brings it all home for me is the simplified map of Senegal. Right Click on the map to download the MP3.

Message from Ghislain Poirier:
I was in Burkina Faso in 1998. On my way back to Montreal in January 1999, I had a 12 hours transit via Dakar to take the plane Dakar-NYC. Yes, at that time there was a direct flight Dakar-NYC with Air Afrique.
During my 12 hours transit, all Senegal was celebrating because the Ramadan just finished and it was the first real big meal ! I had the chance to go downtown Dakar and driving a car for the first time in Africa (nice experience) to chase some African Hip-Hop cassettes that I wasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t able to find in Ouagadougou ( Burkina Faso ). On the many cassettes that I bought that day there was Senerap Freestyle 1 (1997) and Senerap Freestyle 2 (1998).Still today, I love these cassettes and I finally did a cassette rescue and digitalized them. BNP Ã¢â‚¬Å“Yow milÃƒÂ©dalÃ¢â‚¬Â is taken from Senerap Freestyle 1.
