Product Description

Far-out psychedelic-sounding rock mixed with a thick dollop of deep funk and soul was massively popular during the 1960s and 1970s in Africa. This Rough Guide features some hand-picked gems from the archive such as Victor Uwaifo and Balla Et Ses Balladins, and includes tracks by unstoppable psychedelic veterans Ebo Taylor and Orchestre Poly-Rythmo, who are still releasing top-quality mind-bending grooves today. Bonus CD: Victor Uwaifo - 'Ekassa 045' Victor Uwaifo was the first Nigerian to win a Golden Record, a tribute which marks out his remarkable musical achievements. Ekassa, first released in 1971, features the maestro's inventive guitar work and own uniquely funky articulations of indigenous dance rhythms. Enjoy the timeless Uwaifo sound lovingly remastered to perfection.

Only played this once and could pick up on the various music inputs. A must for an African library. Buy this with Rough Guide CDs about African music.

Amazing. I can't believe this music was happening and I was aware of it. This is where it all came from.
