This blog is about my love of music from all over Africa. Each post I will highlight a record that I enjoy, give a bit of historical and personal background, and post a recording of the song. I will try to update the blog regularly depending on when time permits and also include some nice cover/label scans.
Most of the music posted on this blog is recorded from my own copies of vinyl/cassette. I will try to get the best sound out of the source, but bear in mind that many records are poor pressings and/or in less than great condition. Most of the tracks are not available in any other format due to rarity, age and being out of print. If for any reason you want a track removed because you are the copyright owner please contact me and I will look into this.
I love your blog, I’ve already found a stack of artists I’d never heard of that I now love.
Glad you like it! Please keep reading as I have a lot of interesting stuff planned.
great blog. I love the music of africa, but prefer ethiopian music. great post about muluken. can you reup the tracks? I posted some music of Muluken too, and found a lot of interesting stuff on the net.
Good to hear from you. Tracks are all still live for streaming. Glad you enjoyed, I have a lot more Ethiopian music I will be posting shortly.
Hello Mr Obruni
Great blog with some priceless discoveries. Thanks 🙂
Is there any way I could get in touch with you via email?
I’m after one specific track from Gyedu Blay Ambolley – Simi Rapp
Do you know on which LP is it on? Maybe the cut your coat?
here’s a link to the song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gFHSgqoPJDs
would be lovely to get some help!
Best from Berlin
It’s not on Cut Your Coat. Pretty sure the Simi Rap was a modern reworking of Simigwado on his debut album. Think it appeared on The Secondi Man in 2013.
