c deuxième gaou ki est niata ohhahh



This is my fav track from a mix picked up in lil senegal, in the porn/luggage selling place across from africa kine. Its a little old school sounding, afrobeat meets zouglou with badass lyrics. I always thought it was interesting that Magic System considered themselves zouglou, despite being the biggest group involved in the popularization of Coupe-Decale. Their older work is clearly zouglou, tho it often blends, zouglou less choppy/dancey on the more lyrically driven side of things.

I've been to Little Senegal a couple of times - unfortunately wasn't able to spend more than an hour there each time. I think I know the place you're talking about. There's another music store a little farther east along 116th that has scads of pirated CDs - I'm sure you've been there too. Any other suggestions about music stores, restaurants, etc. the next time I'm in NYC?

Well im no little senegal expert, I think your best shot would be ask somebody from the neighborhood what their favs are. Theres a bunch of shops & its cool to play a lot of stuff & remember to ask for track info which obvi arent on a lot of cds before you leave. I recommend africa kine, their thieboudienne is sooo good - its northern Senegalese style and a lot richer than how they make it at other places in the city. Pick up some attiya on the street if they have fresh mint, & beignets if theyre hot.

Yes, I like Africa Kine. My daughter & I got a mean Thiebou Yap & Mafe to go when we were there last April. & the service is fast, unlike a lot of African places.

I've been listening to Magic System at work all evening - Spotify has their last three albums - and I really like the 2001/2003 effort. Pity I missed them when they were in Stockholm this spring, but it really was a ridiculously expensive (and early-to-sell-out) affair - they should have booked them to a much larger venue.

c'est trop bien, cette chanson de magic system!

such a great melody and it so perfectly summarizes the 'quete d'identité' that so many related to me while i lived in the 11eme in paris.
