Call Me Ismaêl

Three men, one first name. Mr. Lô is from Senegal and Mr. Isaac is from Cote d'Ivoire; as is Mr. Wonder, despite the obvious Geordie influence in the song title.

"Raciste" - Ismaêl Lô

"Joe Bleck" - Ismaêl Isaac

"Hawayo" - Ismaêl Wonder

Here's another Mr. Wonder for you.


  1. That first track by Ismael Lo is tremendous. 1. is there an album? 2. is it worth it?

  2. There are apparently two: the self-titled album from 1990 and acompilation called 'Jammu Africa'. But I can't answer your second question because i don't have either of them. I can't remember where I picked it up from to be honest. Somewhere on the internet probably.
