There's never going to be a thread on the Deck about the unrelenting, undying beauty and wonder of African pop music unless I start one, here it is—
Ebo Taylor 70s afrobeat from Ghana:
Patrick Mkwamba & The Four Brothers 80s jit from Zimbabwe:
80s rai from Algeria by Raina Rai (apologies for the bad audio quality on this video tape of a filmed music video from 1985—but it's the best I could find of this one hit they had, not having the CD myself.):
Any fans of African pop out there with something to share, old or new, with me?
