If you like those smooth African translations of U.S. funk, soul- you'll enjoy this.

Format: Audio CD
One of the best, and most consistent of the current crop of afrobeat collections, rare old stuff mostly from the 1970s. The companion disc to the "HEAVY HEAVY HEAVY - AFRICAN STOMP" compilation, this features several songs with wild, unusual melodic hooks, and long, loping grooves. Some of the tunes are just plain kooky, like Geraldo Pino's "Heavy Heavy Heavy," and Steele Beautttah's "Africa," while others, such as K. Frimpong's "Kyenkyen Bi Adi M'Awu," have killer grooves a mile and half deep. A couple of tunes were never released on vinyl, and all the tracks on here are pretty cool. A lot of "new," different-sounding music -- highly recommended!

African music has evolved from rhythm and blues to hip-hop; from blues to classic rock and hardcore metal; and from jazz to funk. This starter CD is a collection of music that had yet to be out in mainstream music culture. Using musical techniques from legendary greats such as Otis Redding and Fela Kuti, Afro-Rock churned out some hits that were entertaining and politically conscious. This is a great way to start a collection of African music for enthusiasts of African culture not only in Africa, but in the Diaspora. I look forward to the second volume.

This is out of print, though you can, very fortunately, download it on Amazon. Good thing--this CD is so good, I would GO! to Africa to get it.

I am not that conversant with African funk, but for layman's purposes, this music worked on tight grooves and fast tempos, and has really good vocals, sometimes chroal.

Which describes a lot and lets you experiance absolutely nothing. DOWNLOAD!

The hooks of these grooves are infectious, and unless you are, frankly, a completely unsyncopated Pat Boone or Anita Bryant square, you will love the infectious elegent yet streetwise vibe of this music

I hope to learn a hell of a lot more about this music, but to start, this is a essental primer.

I'm pretty picky, but this album is good. If you like those smooth African translations of U.S. funk, soul- you'll enjoy this.
