Great selection here by Quantic of awesome Semba tracks from Angola, terrific stuff, total ear candy!
Here’s what he says:
This is a selection of a handful of Angolan 45s that have proven their spirit & longevity in my record collection. Here’s to the slap-echo guitars, scratchy dikanza, hope, aspiration and musical beauty that flowered from Luanda. This sound has long informed the systems of Barranquilla and parallels cumbia, samba & compas in sonic ancestral synchronicity.
Tip O’ Hat to Zhao as I spotted it on his FB feed!
