Taxi Man Music

Here is a funky African gem that I've been enjoying a lot lately from Amadou Balake, titled "Wayisjelequeyele". This track was featured on Balake's 1978 hard-to-find album Taximen. Balake went on to follow up this album the following year with another solid album titled A New York. A couple of years ago the Oriki Music label released a compilation titled "SeƱor Eclectico", which featured many of Balake's finest and most hard-to-find tracks that is certainly worth hunting down. Here is a track that unfortunately didn't make it onto that release, however very worthy of praise in it's own right. Enjoy!
