Soul Glo w. Vakho [Monthly Show]

For the second edition of Soul Glo that explores African grooves and songs. It starts with the electric futuristic intro by Francis Bebey, a pioneer of electronic music in Cameroon and continues with newer brass music by Obadikah, a band from Lagos, Nigeria. The third track is by Brooklyn based afrobeat band Antibalas, which I have been following since their first album of 2000. Next one is a powerful electronic funk from a self released album of William Onyeabor, Nigerian extraordinary artist and visionary who recorded and self released 9 brilliant albums in 1977-1985. The mix continues with an all female Brooklyn afrobeat band Toli and the Femm Nameless demo recording from 2003. Followed by Francis the Great from 1977 having remarkable vocals by a 7 year old boy backed by afro-funk musicians from Cameroon and France. The mix further travels back to Nigeria with a one off studio project of 1978 called Keyboard and formed by Brodricks Majuwa and Isaac Digha. The journey continues with magnificent Manu Dibango fusing jazz, funk and traditional Cameroonian music. Closer to the end the mix features afro funk gem by Eno Louis, South African bubblegum disco by Umoja 707 and instrumental kwaito track by the Equals. The last track is by Zambian rock band Amanaz from 1973.
