Following up from the Fools Gold Post, and in response to the generally huge surge in afro-centric pop music, here are a few classics from the motherland whose influences are being heard across the board.

Included is a little taste of some bouncy Congolese guitars, some haunting, arabesque ethio-jazz and some nigerian Jùjú groove.

Franco & Sam Magwana: Coopération. (DR Congo -1982)

Mulatu Astatqé – Yèkèrmo Sèw (Ethiopia- 70s)

Ja Funmi – King Sunny Ade & His African Beats (Nigeria 1982)
