More Sounds of Africa

We seem to keep uncovering these compilations made for European homes (local and overseas). The cover imagery here is at least one step removed from the usual curios and animal pictures. So we get a bit of mysticism crossing into the psychedelic. As for the sounds its a mix of rock solid urban mbaqanga jive, Soweto soul and bump groove. Enjoy!
