* Beyond Fela – A collection of slow african tunes of the late 60ies & early 70ies *

I always wanted to do a compilation of slow african music, beyond afro beat, beyond african electronic music, beyond “Highlife” before the great godfathers Fela Kuti & William Onyeabor got famous. With the golden age of pure jazz & blues tunes, mostly from the 60 ies and 70ies with sometimes groovy polyrhthm but mostly slow & tender ending with an tarab tune from zanzibar.

Probs go to awesome tapes from africa for posting the “slow music from africa mixes, I took as inspiration, though no tunes are taken here from their mixes.
