4.0 out of 5 stars Angola 1968 - 1976 - 20 April 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This leans more toward latin inspired grooves than the afrobeat and
funk flavored stuff from previous compilations. A lot of the phattest
grooves on it are driven by sweet and recursive guitar licks.
Standouts from Jovends De Prendo("Ilha Virgem" is a supercool, breezy
instrumental), Santos Junior, Alliace Makaiadi("Passeio por Luanda",
an amazing fat latin shuffle that goes funky midway), Quim Manuel O
Espirito Santo's magnificent "Eme Lulu" and Africa Show's closing
blues "Massanga Mama".

An upbeat and sometimes hypnotic fusion, that comes with another great
booklet about the record hunt, music styles and musicians.

4.0 out of 5 stars A timely revival for Angola's 'golden age' 28 Dec 2010
By JBr
Format:Audio CD
Mention Angola and many people in the West might get stuck in civil war/oil/development mode. In comparison with other countries in the world, yes, Angola's existence has been problematic, and things are getting 'better'. But if you just have a listen to what's been happening on the ground, you might get a clearer picture. You might even have some fun. Remember that the city of Luanda has been a central point of the Atlantic world since the age of the discoveries. The last 500 years has seen a massive mix of cultures and traditions that has left a unique and complicated heritage, and it deserves all the attention it can get. At last we have a record that brings us the highs and lows of 'angolanidade' from the time when the independent nation was born in the capital.

Sadly many of these important examples remained inaccessible to wider audiences due to repressive colonial isolation, violent postcolonial politics and a lack of interest in anything 'cultural'. But a now peaceful Angola will no doubt become a new gold mine for 'world music' aficionados. Awaiting you is an extraordinary blend of Caribbean, Latin and local influences: merengue, semba, kazukuta and more, all with the classic vintage sound of old favourites, yet with a refreshing twist. Furthermore - as the insert notes will show you - these tracks have been painstakingly compiled with great sensitivity, hard work and above all, a genuinely real interest.

However, the tragic irony of this 'golden age' of Angolan music is also laid bare. What was firstly contained and carefully fostered by the colonial authorities soon became the sound of an independence movement that eventually consumed itself, dragging everyone - music and all - into the depths of a civil war that ended less than a decade ago. If this music was meaningful enough to be silenced, it deserves to be listened to again and again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Up to the usual standard 8 Jan 2011
By John Shepherd - Published on
Format:Audio CD
A great collection from Samy Redjeb (as usual), a must for world music fans and for anyone else with an interest in Afrobeat. Extensive liner notes outline the historical background to this music ...not all the musicians survived the civil war that tore Angola apart from 1975 to 2002. The grooves are latin in flavor and there are lovely fluid lead guitar lines woven into most tracks.... best are tracks 14-18. This is one of my favorite discs from 2010.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! Astonishing excellent surprise! 10 May 2011
By Joao Lopes - Published on

Amazing! Astonishing excellent surprise!
I am a big fan of African music. I was born in Mozambique so that is a real influence and I had the idea that I were aware of almost all types of African music.
Actually this album was a punch in my stomach coming as a strong surprise. Although I already knew something about semba, kizomba and kuduro, and the music of the ancient Portuguese colony during the 60s and 70s, all the tracks of the CD are a real astonishing excellent surprise!
It's amazing how these guys made such a sound full of energy, joy, sorrow and rage sometimes! With remixes like nowadays DJs, with reverberations like dub. These guys were modern and still are today. It's Like Miles Davis this music is never out of its time. These guys could reach the charts today like they did in Angola in the 70s. Anyway maybe it's better this way. For me it's like a musical diamond I've found!

4.0 out of 5 stars A lost window in time? Thank god for tape recording! 22 Nov 2011
By wk - Published on
Fantastic compilation. I had previously picked up "Sounds of Angola" from the Luz Africa label, but "Angola Soundtrack" is just as good, if not better. Wonderful, meticulous liner notes also tell the sad tale of how the insanity of war stopped these good men from making this kind of music (mostly ever) again. If you think about the various Portuguese-speaking colonies and their music (Cape Verde, Angola, Brazil) and how much joy they've given the world, we can all be thankful. Very highly recommended.
5.0 out of 5 stars This is one of the best CD's I've ever listened to 8 July 2014

Format:Audio CD
This is one of the best CD's I've ever listened to. A serious must-buy! Each track is different and dynamic in its own way, I haven't been able to take it out of my CD player since I bought it 3 months ago.
