Analog Africa continue their never ending winning streak with this second compilation of Angolan sounds. As with the first volume, I was quite surprised by how Latin/South American influenced some of this sounds. Then again with the historical and political background taken into account - as always expertly explained in the thorough liner notes - it's often also a matter of who influenced who. In other words, and although some of this music is damn funky, this is pretty far removed from the type of afrobeat/afrofunk that's on offer on some other Analog Africa releases. Comes in the usual gorgeous no-efforts-spared Analog Africa packaging.
