Ret-RAW Saturdays: Magic System – Premiere Gaou


Now, what sort of African party would it be without this classic being played. Ivorian group Magic System made their name with several songs but “Premiere Gaou” was the one that stuck out like a sore thumb. The song released in the late nineties made it into a number of mainstream radio and video channels and clubs through the noughties and beyond. That even pushed for it to get a refresh video after the original had proven not to be international enough for the grandeur of the song.

Founded in 1996, Magic System comprises Salif “Asalfo” Traoré, Narcisse “Goude” Sadoua, Étienne “Tino” Boué Bi, and Adama “Manadja” Fanny and make their music in Zouglou dance style. Check their “Premiere Gaou” video below;
