Africando

 

Africando is a project by West African producer Ibrahim Sylla which brought together Senegalese vocalists with New York-based Salsa musicians. There are two albums: Africando 1 & 2. Most of the music is traditional Salsa songs re-done with new lyrics in Wolof. The singer with the wonderful deep gravelly voice, Pape Seck, died in early 1995.
