From Reggae Sun Ska (French):
L’HYMNE 2018 DU FESTIVAL: « Emma Sun Ska » !
En 2018, l’hymne du Reggae Sun Ska est la chanson Emma Sun Ska, enregistrée pour l’occasion par Toure Kunda qui montera sur la scène One Love le samedi 4 août, Flavia Coelho qui avait joué au Sun Ska en 2014, et Naksookhaw, qui se produira sur la scène Natty Dread le dimanche 5 août ! Le chant d’Emma Sun Ska est multilingue et ses paroles constituent un hommage à « la mère donneuse de toute vie ». Le titre sortira évidemment sur Soulbeats Records, label reggae, soul/funk indépendant qui travaille chaque jour à la défense d’une musique libre, indépendante et métissée.

Touré Kunda: "N'Doungou" (1991)



7" / Trema / 60291 / France (Promo)

Description: Promotional single for appearance "en concert a l'Olympia les 6, 7 et 8 mars 1991", with two versions of "Ndoungou". The shorter track is an edit of the longer one. The studio version of "Ndoungou" was originally released on Salam. This single version is similar to the live version on Sounké, and the musicians credited are the same, but there are no audience sounds and there are other differences. This version appears to be a rehearsal or alternate studio recording, and is otherwise unreleased.
