Willie Songue accompagné par Les Showmen – Moni Ngan (Cameroun, 1974, Sonafric)

For today, I wanted to share with you “Moni Ngam”, a killer Afro Funk Jerk Garage Rock track with devastating saxophone parts & grunts a la James Brown, recorded in the Mid 70s by the super underground Cameroonian musician Willie Songue (who probably composed this only single) and his band “Les Showmen“on the mythical French record label Sonafric – Enjoy !
