Yéké Yéké – Mory Kanté [Guinea]

God we’re loving the African vibes right now! Yéké Yéké is an absolute classic! It was released in 1987 as a 7” single from the Guinean singer’s third album. Not only did this tuneful delight explode across Africa, it became a European number-one the following year. It was the FIRST EVER African single to sell over a million copies! Get ready for some unbelievably catchy vocals and just listen to that kora harp.
