Catalog no.: AKUMS0001002

Item ID: 458268

A fantastic mixture of brakka, reggae and afrobeat, recorded between 1980 and 1984, from the underground Afropean boxer Mushapata, a legend of the African reggae underground scene in Paris. Ignored by the record labels of the time, his first self-produced recordings reveal a rough mix of lo-fi reggae and Afrobeat rhythms accompanied by a brass section close to free jazz. The nonchalant sounding voices of Mushapata and Tshayi complete this explosive cocktail and carry, in Swahili language, the Pan-African ideas of Lumumba and other great figures of African-American struggles. This maxi single, conceived as a mini-compilation tribute, includes 4 titles from the first two albums. Including liner notes in English, French and Japanese. Limited edition!
