various-ivory coast soul: afrofunk in abidjan from 1972 to 1982 cd (hot casa)

Price: $16.90


various: ivory coast soul 

2010 release. This compilation is the result of nearly three years' work by Djamel Hammadi aka Afrobrazilero, an extraordinary collector and vinyl digger who traveled all over Africa from Ghana, Benin, Togo, Mali to Senegal. After 12 beautiful but dangerous trips throughout The Ivory Coast (featuring fake policemen at border controls, political instabilities, deep economic crisis, malaria, and one big fear when he opened a vinyl box in a small abandoned bus station and found a scorpion) he selected 13 rare or unreleased tracks. All these tracks have been fully licensed with the tireless help of DJ Julien Lebrun. As Hot Casa explains: "It was almost always impossible to find the original master song, as most of the producers we met didn't have them anymore. As you can imagine, tropical climate and humidity are not friends to vinyl preservation. Still, we did our best to clean and use different copies of each song to have the clearest sound."
