Review: Gambia's Guelewar Band Of Banjul have been sat right at the top of the African psych game since the 1980s and, although they released a highly successful album in 2011, Halleli N' Dakarou, they have remained largely silent since the golden era of afrobeat. In fact, this latest reappearance form the band comes int he form of a reissue of 1981's Warteef Jigeen, a time when the group was really beginning to take shape and find their sound. The title track is the perfect opener thanks to some prophetic vocals, a big beat accompaniment, and something beautifully 60s garage about it. Other favourites include the more Afro-leaning "Mamadu Bitike", the Fela-style charge that is "NTC The Gambia", and the instantly hummable horns of "Jilanna". What a corker - highly recommended!
