ivory coast soul 2
Following an excellent first installment, Ivory Coast Soul is back with Afrofunk in Abidjan 1976-1981, a new collection of vintage horn-flanked tunes from the often musically-overlooked West African nation. The rare, and often unreleased, tracks were compiled by vinyl digger Djamel Hammadi aka Afrobrazilero — who overcame “fake policemen at border controls, political instabilities, deep economic crisis, malaria and one big fear when he opened a vinyl box in a small abandoned bus station and found a Scorpio” to dig up these sounds — and then licensed by DJ Julien Lebrun. Stream the entire release below and grab it now from Hot Casa Records.

    I think the track 10 isn’t from Lougah. I’m pretty sure there is a mistake.

    Cool mix but “often musically-overlooked West African nation”? You can’t be serious. Meiway, Magic Système, Alpha Blondy, the entire zouglou, mapouka, coupe-décale movement originated in CI.
