Best African CD Store (2008)

TEJAN

Though he also maintains a store at 2095 Grand Concourse in the Bronx, African music connection TEJAN spends most of the week at his tiny storefront on Warren. Originally from Gambia, Tejan charges high prices for a street vendor ($14 for me, $12 for his buds), but his knowledge and warmth make up for it. He can find you the new Aurlus Mabélé, hook you up with the best new soukous and highlife from Paris, and best of all, play videotapes of the new dance crazes. If he can't find the tape, he'll just demonstrate himself.
