X-border Players : Galaire a Conakry

January 27th, 2010

Though this track is still a work in progress, below is a ruff dub for you to enjoy. The song came to be during the recent political tumult in Guinea Conakry, and though the situation hopefully looks to be improving, it looked pretty dire only a short while ago. Stay tuned for a final cut coming out with more tracks from X-border Players.
