3. Aby Ngana Diop | Liital | Awesome Tapes From Africa
Before her death in 1997, Aby Ngana Diop was an icon in Senegalese music, with her elated takes on mbalax, the musical gumbo of Senegalese rhythms and Western influences. This Awesome Tapes From Africa reissue attests to her star power, fury on the mic and an enchantress' ear for polyrhythm.
