CD


5.00 32

Rare late 70s Afro soul from Cameroonese bassist and singer Brigth Engelberts – insistent, hypnotic and danceable grooves that points the way to myriad trends in soul in the decade to come, well beyond easily categorizable Afro funk & soul! Some numbers have a punchier, hypnotic rhythmic dynamic, others steer a bit closer to a psych soul vibe! The groove is fairly tight, with Engelberts backed by keys, drums, congas & other percussion, and some horns, and it's plenty funky! Titles and singing are in English, and include "Civilisation In The World", "Free Me Now", "Get Together", "Let Me Near Them Say", and "Shifty Hand Woman".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
