Afro Beat Airwaves – West African Shockwaves – Ghana & Togo 1972-1978 – 2xLP – Vol 2 – Afro-Funk & Psychedelic Boogie
Afro funk and raw, psychedelic boogie driven by the organtastic curator at the helm, Samy Ben Redjeb, founder of Analog Africa (he has also gifted us > you with Orchestre poly rythmo de contonou). Samy crisscrossed the lengths of Ghana and Togo in search of the producers and artists active in the 70s to create these cosmic, afro-funk beats.
The 44-page full colour booklet accompanying these 75 minutes of heavy West African sounds has interviews, photos and master tape exploration of the whole project. Afro-Beat Airways showcases an amazing diversity of local rhythms spiced with Afro-American funk, soul and jazz. LP contains 2 tracks not available on the CD version!
