Pierre Vassiliu – Banjul

French song by Pierre Vassiliu about a man who falls in love with Africa (Gambia) through music and a woman…

Pierre Vassiliu was a singer mostly known in France for a cover of Chico Buarque in 1973 (Qui c’est celui lĂ  ?), but who did much more…

He spent part of his life between Dakar and the Casamance, a region of Senegal to the south of the Gambia, where he managed a Jazz Club and a restaurant.

He died in 2014. RIP
