Dany Play - Le Noir (Guyana, 1970s, Disques Dan's)

 

To close this sunday, a track from Dany "Play" Sinai, a famous musician from Guyana who recorded several albums and singles from the 60's.

"Le Noir" - the track presented here - is taken from a very obscure and very hard to find compilation out on the 70's on a private label and recorded in one session in the Eldorado cinema (Cayenne, Guyana).

Dany Sinai is still active today in the musical fields, owns the "Polina" nightclub (Matoury, Guyana) and also a haulage firm.

Zao - Ancien Combattant (Republic of Congo, 1984, Black Music)



One of the biggest African Anthems by the Congolese Artist Casimir "Zao" Zoba, taken from his first album.

This version is actualy an adaptation from "Petit Imprudent", a song written and composed in 1969 by the guitarist and singer Idrissa Soumaoro, but Idrissa never succeded in his claim.

There is also another cover of this song, recorded in 1973 by the Guinean band Balla Et Ses Balladins.
