TJR says

At this time, the Dakar-born multi-instrumentalist Ousmane Diallo is around 30-years-old. He had left Senegal in the 1960s to study traditional music in the Cote D’Ivoire. Newly formed by the bandleader, Les 4 Femmes Dans Le Vent (The 4 Women in The Wind) are: Fatou Sakho, Fatou Talla Ndiaye, Fatou Thiam Samb, Khady Diouf. He's noted for his uncompromising political views. Gleaning information from Google Translate I'm led to believe he's very much a man-of-the-people: “//What Senegalese do not know Ouza, the spokesman of the voiceless, the one who stigmatizes the evils of his country, the one who warns, the one who tells of the suffering of his people, his nation, his continent!” Ouza sounds alright to me.

n.b. This LP is out-of-print, but you can download it from the wonderful Global Groove. Get it here.
