Music New Release
« on: September 16, 2016, 03:40:20 pm »
Urgent Jumping!
East African Musiki Wa Dansi Classics

Drawing on more than 30 years’ experience with African music, the selection and notes are by DJ John Armstrong.
This double album houses 27 East African classics, recorded between 1972 and 1982. Some are super-rare, some are only now finding their way into the DJ boxes of others, but all were popular hits at the time.
From benga and rumba to Afrobeat, and including tracks from Afro 70, Juwata Jazz, Dar International, Earthquake Jazz, Orchestre Grand Piza to name but a few; these classic tracks, all mastered from analogue tape, are the true gems of the boom-time years.

It's always good to see old-time EA music rescued.
In this case, it's mainly music with a somewhat funky, almost West Africa, sound, less melodic  than that from the great Congolese diaspora bands.

Very good dance music, at any rate.
