When we returned from A Short Walk in the Gambian Bush – a 930km African odyssey, we were sent the attached video of music and photos from our walk, that a well-wisher had put together for us – which NME then picked up on (I always wanted to be in the NME!!). She did a great job…the music is fantastic…listen to all the influences in there – Youssou N’Dour rather quite likes them too: ‘Guelewar Band of Banjul has been further developing the afro-manding sound of Ifang Bondi during a short period in the late 1970s and early 1980s…Youssou N’Dour considers Guelewar as a main inspirational influence, partly because of the use of lyrics in a noble wolof as opposed to “street” wolof...’
Peace and spiritual reflection on this, the first day of Ramadam – Friday 20th July 2012.
