Continuing further into the music of 1970s East Africa, Soundway present a limited edition 10" of raw, bluesy garage-funk-rock from Jimmy Mawi. Jimmy Mawi was a Madagascan guitarist based in Nairobi in the mid-1970s. He cut only three 45s for EMI East Africa on their Pathé imprint, all of which have virtually disappeared from sight in the nearly 40 years since they were recorded. Soundway reproduce four of the best tracks here. Fuzz guitars, raspy vocals, and metronomic drumming combine for an exhaustive Afro-rock workout.
