Editorial Reviews

As the 1970s dawned, the all-glittering, all-dancing sounds of disco were reverberating right around the globe. Creative scenesters put their own spin on the disco sound, mashing together the rhythmic pulse of funk, soul and Latin with African grooves; soukous, Afrobeat, township jive and more. Dig the far out sounds of Osibisa, Tony Allen, Mango Groove and Yvonne Chaka Chaka.

Bonus CD: Vincent Nguini And Maloko, Soul On Fire. Hear the works of Wilson Pickett, Sam Cooke, Otis Redding and James Brown as they have never sounded before! This vintage release sees Cameroonian guitarist Vincent Nguini arranging eight classic tracks in soukous style. The retro sound is complete with heavy, brassy horns. Players include Congolese guitarist Syran Mbenza and saxophonist Fredo Ndoumbe-Ngando.
