    Virtuoso grupo. Lástima que los 3 miembros que lo componían no sigan juntos. Ahora se llaman Daara j Family (compuesto por N'Dango D y Faada Freddy). Deberían estar catalogados en el recopilatorio "1001 discos que hay que escuchar antes de morir" Muchas gracias chicos!!

    "Great combination of good rapping (w/ great beats & bass) and African melodies" - absolutely true! And I guess I even think there can be found spanish melodies ("Esperanza")
