Various

RGNET1173CD

This album features music produced in sub-Saharan West Africa from the late 1950s up to the early 1980s - a golden era in African music. With highlife guitars and horns, Guinean big-band music, early Senegalese mbalax with its tasty Latin influences and the funky Afro-beat sound that shakes the hippest dancefloors across the globe, this is the big beat of West Africa.
