5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome African Pop 2 Jun 2006
By Pieter Uys HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio Cassette
This opulent album opens with Dede Priscilla by Lea Lignanzi from Central Africa Republic, a most rhythmic and hypnotic lilting number with French exhortations to dance scattered in between the lovely sounds of the African language. The next number is by Mensy from Cameroun, somewhat more subdued than the previous, but equally hypnotic and engaging in its rhythmic textures.

Bolingo Mobesu by Vonga Aye from Zaire is a real sizzler with its soulful female vocal, male backing vocals and pulsating beats. Absolutely brilliant and ideal for the dancefloor. The next country is Mali, whence comes Menebo Nden by Moussa Doumbia. This one opens with wailing a capella vocals before the buoyant rhythms come in. It also contains the most beautiful instrumental flourishes and has an overall Middle Eastern flavour, especially in the vocal patterns.

The melodious Madeleina by Pablo Lubadika Porthos from Zaire is next, a flowing love ballad with a bittersweet feel. Then comes Jeff Louna from Congo with Paulina Mineure, a mid-tempo number that sounds the closest to a Western pop ballad. The album concludes with Yoyoyo by Asi Kapela from Zaire. Halfway through there is an interesting rhythmic break before all the instruments return in full force.

Every track on this gorgeous compilation is a pleasure to listen to. The songs are tuneful and most are highly uplifting and joyful. Please also investigate Volume I of Sounds d'Afrique, although I personally like this album more. Together these two albums demonstrate the richness and variety of African pop music in the early 1980s.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good times! 23 Dec 2010
By Ade
Format:Audio CD
Tremendous CD and a real surprise as I did not know it existed. Previously owned Sound D'Afrique 1 back in the early 1980's and that is fabulous. This is at least as good. Really good time music, made for dancing and parties. Well done to elitedigital for getting their hands on this rare gem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great early african pop 25 Nov 2002
By ssbrown33@hotmail. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This album, and its companion album Sound D'Afrique vol.1, are great compilations of early African pop - mostly, but not exclusively, Soukous. Originally put out by Island records in the early 80's, this infectious dance music has vocals of great expressive feeling along with snappy horn sections and churning rhythms (as well as the intertwinning guitar parts we have come to expect from this music. Dare ya not to dance!

I am so glad to find this again. My vinyl version got broken in a move. This is wonderful upbeat music that will make you feel good to be alive. I love it when I find a lost treasure like this.
