Musiques d'Afrique website

You might know our main website Frank Bessem's Musiques d'Afrique:

The site has not been updated since October 27. This has to with the web hosting company, Yahoo Small Business, which is in the process of being separated from Yahoo under a new name Aabaco Small Business. Renewal of another year has been done on our side, but but this has not been taken into account on their side, which means that we cannot update the site since more than 3 weeks now. 

Due to the very poor customer service no progress is made in solving this problem.

In case you are worried, the site is not going to disappear or being abandoned, we hope the problems will be solved and new content will be added soon.

Please be patient, because we are about to lose patience, but we will be back!

Update 28-11-2015: the problem has been taken to another level of customer support and should be taken care of in a few days. 

Update 02-12-2015: GOOD NEWS! Problems have been solved, and the website can be updated again as of today, and has been updated today!

Senemali In Amsterdam

Memory Lane..

I found this excerpt from a Senemali concert the other day, it was a gift that I was not expecting ever to see. The band, with lead singer Mola Sylla, was created in Senegal, but was later based in the Netherlands. They made two great albums, and Senemali was at the time referred to as a super band, but unfortunately the dream didn't last. 

Enjoy the video!
