Fouma System – Xamal Sa Bopp Free DL + Video

Fouma System is a very exciting project born out of the collaboration between Dakar based griot vocalist Mustaf Mbaye and Danish producer Exampler. The two met on several occasions both in Dakar and Copenhagen, and despite the language barrier they  strongly connected, as both shared not only common ideas about music, but also a passion for food and café touba.  The full story will unfold in the coming weeks as we prepare the release of their debut EP Mind Mi Dem June 17. For now, let the music do the talking:

Lyrics (this is phonetic wolof spelling, not in any way proper!):
