Solta a Franga
A party without borders. Mixed by DJ Bertú: Teranga Beat Senegal 70s mix.
The unsurpassed labels Teranga Beat and Analog Africa recently released another couple of downright gems of records containing lovely 70s grooves from Senegal. ‘Aw Sa Yone vol. II’by Dieuf Dieul de Thiès is the most recent record from Teranga Beat that already has quite a handful releases on its name already.
For the final ‘Senegal ’70’, Analog Africa’s Samy Ben Redjeb plunged into a stack of wonderfully funky 70s records.
DJ Bertú got going with these new records and made them into a nice mixtape to warm you up with. Teranga Beat and Senegal ’70 and other Senegalese gems from the 70s!

DJ Bertú plays Global Beats without borders and finds inspiration and grooves in deep jungles and faraway deserts but also in urban beats from cities and jams from just round the corner. Fallen under the spell of African rhythms and funk since the early 80s, he wasn’t held back to listen eagerly to all far corners of the world and compose his sets with it; Bertú takes you from Bamako to Bombay, Barcelona, Bahia, Buenos Aires, Bucharest, and beyond.
Over the last few years, DJ Bertú played at Mystic Grooves; Simba Ngoma is one of the residents of the GlobaLoca! clubnight in Utrecht and plays at Rasa in Utrecht on a regular basis.
