2017 repress. Obscure gems extracted from 45s and 78s released in the '50s and early '60s. Welcome to a wild trip around Africa during its electric guitar explosion in the '50s and '60s, a period when foreign styles like Cuban mambo or American twist were absorbed and recorded with tons of guitars full of reverb and vibrato. Twangy jungle travels through calypso and jerk from Sierra Leone; Congolese rhumba, mambo, and cha-cha-cha; surf from Madagascar; Nigerian twist and rock & roll; merengue from Cameroon... Includes tracks by Bantous Mujos, Les Safari, King Kennytone, Ambiance Jazz, Catchito & Chacha Po, Orchestre Rock-a-Mambo, E.K's, Olivera & Freitas, Vedette Jazz, Freddy Ranarison, Ry-Co Jazz, and Geraldo Pino.
