spreading the knowledge

One of the coolest compilations i’ve got my hands on in the recent years….an excerpt from the accompanying info: “The 1960s and 1970s across Africa were decades defined by bright optimism and clashing sensibilities. As newly independent countries grappled to assert fresh identities, politicized youth movements bristled against authority. Rapid urbanization challenged the traditions and hierarchies of old, and the Europeanized urban elite collided with pioneers of ‘back to roots’ movements. Music plunged through the heart of this dynamic time and was a powerful tool of expression. Far-out psychedelic-sounding rock mixed with a thick dollop of deep funk and soul became the sound of a generation. The music was cosmopolitan, rebellious and deeply cool all at the same time.”
