African tracks, but with plenty of influence from American soul and funk – either 60s modes that echo Memphis and New Orleans, or Latin soul modes from Spanish Harlem, or even some of the looser, groovier styles of the 70s! Most tracks here are from the Congo and West Africa – and tracks are short, tight, and unabashedly trying for some overseas influences in the music – even while still holding onto more regional elements too! Instrumentation includes lots of electric guitar, organ, trumpets, and sonic touches you'd find on the other side of the Atlantic
– but mixed with more complicated rhythms and arrangements, and often recorded with production that's quite different than American work. Titles include "Jerk Bastos" by Les Kilts, "L'Amour Au Prix De L'Argent" by Sax Wary & Orchestra, "Amina" by Gee Dees, "Save Me" by Orchestre African Fiesta, "Let's Live Together" by Sunburst, "Mi Nuevo Boogaloo" by Kalle Et L'African Team, "Ziliyankiyan" by Uta Bella, "Pour Mieux Vivre" by HC Clementophe, and "Sookie" by Docteur Nico & Orchestre.
