Au Revoir, Mogadishu (tape)

Amazing tape of early recordings from Mogadishu, Somalia before 1991 or recorded in exile. Side A is more ethio jazz orientated while side B is more danceable and soulful.

The lovely tape is sold out at Bis aufs messer store but buy it still via: staalplaat
(ÇAYKH Recordings).

Hypnotic – (don´t expect a hi-fi recording…).

“This Tape of 70’s and 80’s Somali sound is a rich blend of traditional Somali folk music infused with Western funk, rock and reggae and a touch of Indian, Arabic and African flavors.

Side A is good for that mellow creamy morning. Side B will get your ass wiggling! There are hardly any proper releases of this soulful sound of guitar, synthesizer and drums. I spent some months finding, compiling and editing rips of TV and live recordings on old VHS tapes and radio broadcasts to cassette tapes and here is what I got. Enjoy! With love from Mogadishu.”
