Gambian music in the doldrums
By D. A. Jawo


Nowadays, hardly a month goes by without one Senegalese musical group or the other going to perform in the Gambia, and invariably, all their shows are sold out. While some of us are complaining that these Senegalese musicians are raking up so much money from the country, including the open generosity often being shown to them by President Jammeh, apparently soliciting their songs in praise of him, but one would wonder how many of us have ever sat down to analyze why such a situation has arisen.

Once upon a time, Gambian musicians were in high demand in Senegal. Those of us old enough can remember how the Super Eagles used to be frequent visitors to such places like Kaolack , Dakar and St. Louis and their music was quite in high demand in those places. For instance, Radio Syd was then even more popular across the border in Senegal than it was in the Gambia in the 1970s and early eighties.

It was also then quite the norm for young Senegalese musicians to come to the Gambia to get oriented by more experienced Gambian musicians. In fact many of them used their sojourn in the Gambia as a stepping stone to fame and success. We can, for instance, recall how a person like Ouza Diallo and his band spent most of their time in the 1970s in the Gambia, based mostly at the Bamboo Night Club in Serekunda.
Of course, with the socio-linguistic similarities of the two countries, it would not be easy to separate the people’s musical tastes, but at least we certainly never bargained for this sort of cultural eclipse we seem to be experiencing today from our neighbours. In fact the dominance is so obvious that in all the radio stations, including the GRTS, as well as in night clubs and other social events, one hears more Senegalese music than Gambian lyrics, apparently because a majority of the people prefer the more melodious Senegalese tunes to those songs in praise of President Yahya Jammeh, on which most Gambian musicians now seem to specialize....

Very interesting topic, but the Seneglese residents within The Gambia must be a contributing factor, showing to be almost half of Gambian population if the figures below are correct.

President Jammeh then went on to claim that while there are 750,000 Senegalese citizens living in various parts of The Gambia, and engaged in all types of business without being harassed by anyone,
