Grant Phabao & Djouls - African Mashed Potato Popcorn Vol.1
(MP3 Podcast) T.I.M.E.C. TIMEC095, 2006-03-21

Info :
Don't be misled by the calm and tripping opening Kenyan track from Mombasa, which is just an introduction to the afro grooves that are offered afterwards. After this, you may then embark on a tribalistic trip to Nigeria, with afrofunk marvels from the Ikenga Super Stars Of Africa (find the album!), Nkengas, and The Apostles. Your voyage will also visit South Africa, with 70's afropop oddities by and Assagai, and Cameroon, with the afro space jazz of Franck Biyong and Massak. In order to be accurate in this mashed mix of various afro meals, we also couldn't leave you without another slice of Antibalas magic, who are, along with frenchman Doctor L, leading the now worldwide afrobeat scene into the 21st century with an undeniable, exceptional, revolutionnary and graceful talent for going forward. And big thanks to Mackdaddy who gave me access to his vast collection of African Music for this selection of Afro Funk & Soul 1971-2004.
