(V/A) Ibi Na Bo: 60 Africa 70 (Domino Sound 023 *Cassette)

A nicely curated selection of lively Sub Saharan pop & folk, recently released on cassette by the Domino Sound label. They're the same folks who brought you that excellent A Orillas de Magdelena vinyl compilation of classic cumbias from Discos Fuentes, last year. I've decided not to split the tape's tracks, as a big part of the value of this one, in my view, is its overall flow. And also I'm feeling lazy today. Besides, a good portion of the tracks are available elsewhere, many having been collected on various other official cd/lp reissues & collections. As a compromise, I promise to get around to linking to the corresponding albums of the otherwise available tracks via the tracklisting below. Oh, I should also mention that Domino Sound Record Shack is a (reportedly great) shop based out of New Orleans, LA.

Here's a couple track samples:
