Touki Ba Banjul is a compilation on of the Senegalese psych sensation Guelewar who played a major part in the development of the Afro Manding sound. From 1979-1982 the band released four albums, featuring some of Senegal's best funk tunes. This double pack LP features the highlights of these four rare albums. Before Guelewar, Laaye N'Gorn, the lead singer of the band, was already one of Gambia's most celebrated artists. He was the centre figure in the Supreme Eagles, with whom he played as the main act in one of Gambia's successful clubs 'The Bambo No. 1 Night Club'. in return for the success the club manager offered them instruments, after which they renamed their band to the Super Alligators. Due to the mixture of western influences such as soul and funk with traditional and regional rhythms like boogaraboo and sawrouba, the Super Alligators had a unique sound. The result of this blend is known as the psychedelic sound of Gambia (Senegal). in 1973 the Super Alligators decided to rename the group to Guelewar, Wolof's for 'noble warrior'.
