Following that former article, I wanted to share with you for today “Angara“, a catchy syncopated Afro Elak Soukous Funky Soul track with Bikutsi rhythm influences, taken from one of the numerous singles recorded in the 70s by the mythical Cameroonian band “Los Camaroes” leaded by the composer, musician & singer Messi Martin, and out on the legendary French Record label “Sonafric” – Enjoy !

To notice : I’ve released on Nubiphone (one of my 2 reissue record labels) in 2019 a compilation highlighting the amazing work of this band. Some copies are still available here (or PM !).
