CUBA 1958

Just as Copernicus once kicked the earth out of the center of the universe, Afro-Caribbean and Afro-Cuban music have brought us closer to the center of the cosmos.
Cuba in the 1950s: Rumba, Conga, Danzon, Guaracha, Mambo, Cha-Cha-Cha, Charanga, Batanga, Guaguanco, Son, Montuno, Guajira, Afro, Pregón, Bembo, Bembe, Descarga, Seis Chorreao, Bolero .. Everything in motion, sometimes a big stage, sometimes a backyard ritual, at the same time rooted in the traditions of Africa and a futuristic trans-national dance floor. Music for adults, inspiration of all subsequent pop music experiments and theoretical expositions in all parts of the world.

I hope you like this hour with gems from my collection of Cuban vinyls.

Lately some compilations have been released that introduce psychedelic and rare highlights of music from the Central Atlantic archipelago. And indeed, Analog Africa (Space Echo – The Mystery Behind The Cosmic Sound Of Cabo Verde Finally Revealed!) and Ostinato Records (Astro-Atlantic Hypnotica From The Cape Verde Islands 1973-1988) have done a great job. My selection refers to the same time. 13 fantastic tracks from my personal favorites Mendes & Mendes, Chovino Dos Santos and Dany Carvalho among others are featured. They take you off to cosmic sounds well-kept in the soul of Cape Verdean music.
My personal CABO VERDE SHOW is opened by the truly rare track SODADE, TEM PENA D’MIM form Grupo Serenata. Hope you enjoy this vinyl experience of 1970s and 1980s music of Cabo Verde.

Hope you can join us celebrating this Sunday afternoon with a eclectic jazz + tropical mix of fresh and vintage upbeat styles. Opening with Hailu Mergia and his brand new manic sensation of urban-ethiopian music delivered in his upcoming album „Lala Belu“ produced  by „Awesome Tapes From Africa“ (Release date March 9, 2018). Followed by a another jazzy afrobeat scoop from the Austrian band Shake Stew written by the Shake Stew leader and bass player Lukas Kranzelbinder (Album release „Rise And Rise“ April 6, 2018). The stirring up of tropical rhythms and references continues with the outstanding Descarga elegance by Los Propios Bateros, enchanted Mexican landscapes in the wide angle by La Mecanica Popular, both 7-inches issued by the NYC label Names You Can Trust. But there is no Ach Schuh Mix without really rare treasures, latin rare groove deluxe such as Colombian cumbias by Antolin y su Combo Orense (1960s), and driving caribbean columbian beats from Barranquilla by Emila Herrera (1980s), Peruvian descargas by Aniceto y sus Fabulosos and Coco Lagos y sus Orates (1970s). More gems appear in this wonderfully swelling stream, such as Bubbha Thomas & The Lightmen’s early jazz funk masterpiece “109 Psychosomatic” (1970) and dr. Nicos insanely friendly Hawaian Mambo (early 1960s).
