MARK ERNESTUS‘ NDAGGA RHYTHM FORCE (live)
It started when Mark Ernestus, the founder of the legendary Hard Waxrecord store, which in 1989 laid the foundation for Berlin’s electronic club music scene, travelled to Senegal and the Gambia for the first time in quest of the rhythms of Sabar and Mbalax.
With local assistance he invited over 20 percussionists and other musicians – most of whom he had become interested in via local cassettes or YouTube clips – for a spontaneous recording session in Dakar, with sabar drummers from the local Jeri-Jeri clan playing the basic rhythms.
Since then, the project has evolved into something new in its own right. From the initial pool of artists involved, Mark has handpicked a smaller core group with whom he intensified collaboration, toured throughout Europe and recorded new tracks.
