Item ID: 456851

This 1979 LP from Cameroon opens up with the bright and uplifting disco-swing gem and title track 'Funky Disco Music'. Punchy horns, Afro rhythms and groovy bass (from Vicky Edimo) power this groover along before mixing straight into the jazz-funk-disco hybrid 'Ndolo Embe Mulemadolo'. Taking its cue from the age -Paris 1979- 'Une Chanson Sans Paroles' is a French power pop meets Afro swing belter to keep the LP tempo high. To close off side A is the gloriously uplifting 'Bowa'a Mba Ngebe'. Dripping in positivity and goodwill, this is a feel-good disco gem. Side B opens with the Afro-folk meets pop 'Doi Da Manga'. Next is 'Me To A De Try My Own' and 'Esele Mba Musango Na Ndol'am' with their locked on bass grooves and Afrobeat grooves. The LP closes with the smooth ballad jazz of 'Emen' Ango'. The heartstrings are all a flutter.
