2021 repress!

Organ-driven Afro-beat, cosmic Afro-funk and raw, psychedelic boogie… just some of the flavours to be found on this highly danceable compilation by Samy Ben Redjeb, founder of Analog Africa. No effort has been spared!

To document these 15 irresistible tracks and the music scene from the’70s, Samy crisscrossed the lengths of Ghana and Togo in search of the producers and artists’ or their relatives. In the process he recorded a dozen interviews, scanned 90 pictures and transferred 120 master tapes. Afro-Beat Airway showcases an amazing diversity of local rhythms spiced with Afro-American funk, soul and jazz. Tip!
