Cabo Verde Disco Boogie, Funaná, Coladeira, Morna

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.
