N'Dardisc discography

Vinyl records by the Senegalese label

The N'Dardisc label was one of the first commercial recording labels dedicated to West African music, predating Syliphone and Safie Deen. The label was created by Louis Fourment, who sold the records through his shop "La Radio Africaine" in Dakar. In December 1967 Alan P. Merriam wrote that N'Dardisc had issued a large number of 10" 78 rpm records, "and within the past year the first five records in a 12" LP series" ("Music", Africa Report, Vol. 13 no. 2, February 1968, p. 6). Further information on the catalogue of N'Dardisc 78 rpm discs would be greatly valued. 

If you own a recording not listed here please contribute to this discography by forwarding the catalogue details via the "About" link. All contributions will be acknowledged.
