Jump for joy to Nigerian praise singing and traditional drumming, spinning in hypnotizing cycles. I'm actually feeling dizzy. Despite the balance of lilty harmony and aggressive pulsing, this tape, produced outside Port Harcourt, takes me want a siesta.

Very excited to announce the next Awesome Tapes From Africa release. Dur-Dur Band Volume 5 comes out March 19 February 5, 2013. The classic Somali band's 1987 recording captures some of the incredible sounds happening in Mogadishu during that era. More info soon.
