An ambitious anthology of music from African films of many styles – featuring a variety of material that stretches as deep as the subject matter – covering films from 1975 to 2005! The sound quality is crisp and impeccable – and the stylistic breadth is quite wide! Many of the tracks feature the clapping and thumping percussion, and gorgeous vocals you'd expect, both solo and choral – but the far-reaching compositions and melodies really make this an interesting listen. Musicians involved include percussion/drummer Mokhtar Samba, Senegalese kora player Lamine Konte, eclectic Franco-Senegalese composer Patrice Gomis, author/composer/singer Francios N'Gwa and many more! 19 tracks in all: "Ouaga Saga" by Mokhtar Samba", "Bako" by Lamine Konte, "Oghendo" by Francois N'Gwa, "Donka" by Marc Herouet, "Maaya" by Amity Neria, "Sababu", Ray Lema, "Brakka, I Am Calling From Africa" by So Kalmery, "Arrivee A Cotonou" by Marianne Entat, "Voyages" by Loy Ehrlich, "Pet A Tetit" by Jean Odoutan and more! © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.
We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.
When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.
All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.
