Tina – N’Goumbe (Gabon, 1976, Pathe-Marconi EMI)

Tina was a very obscure Gabonese singer who released an album and a single at the age of 18 years old in 1976, in the same vein of Myriam Makeba, Anne-Marie Nzie or Abeti.

I decided to make you discover “N’Goumbe“, a beautiful Folk track with melancholic guitar arrangements – Enjoy !

Hi dear readers !
As promise last week, here comes the new selection I’ve prepared for your little ears !
A selection of 6 afrobeat tracks taken from 6 veeery hard to find Nigerian records, especially in this condition !
I know that for many people “Afrobeat” word is mainly connected with the work of Fela Kuti, so I wanted to make you discover other, and deeper artists – Hope you’ll enjoy this mix !

ADP005 – The Hygrades, The Funkees & Wrinkar experience : A Selection of Afro Rock & Funky 7 Inches from Nigeria

Hi everyone !
As promised, here comes a little summer selection of 10 funky / afro rock tracks taken from some seven inches of my personal collection.
These 7′, from famous Nigerian bands, were issued at the time on the Nigerian division of the well known English label EMI / HMV (remember the deaf dog ?) and are really hard to lay hands on, specially in this condition.
