Guitars & Field Recordings from Africa


A fifteen-track maelstrom of traditional rhythms and electrified highlife jams from Africa. The mix aims for maximum novelty, drawing from field recordings, modern collaborations, big band orchestras, to tribal, folk, and cafe music. Sourced as far back as 1950 to the present day if that's the sort of thing you're interested in. Tracks by Marijata, Konono N°1, Ali Farka Touré, etc.
