Item ID: 465596

A fantastic, hypnotic and funky compilation from the Dur-Dur Band of Somalia! This triple LP reissue of the band's first two albums -the first installment in a three-part series dedicated to Dur-Dur Band- represents the first fruit of Analog Africa's long labours to bring this extraordinary music to the wider world. Remastered from the best available audio sources, these songs have never sounded better. Some thirty years after they first made such a splash in the Mogadishu scene, they have been freed from the wobble and tape-hiss of second and third generation cassette dubs, to reveal a glorious mix of polychromatic organs, nightclub-ready rhythms and hauntingly soulful vocals. In addition to two previously unreleased tracks, the music is accompanied by extensive liner notes, featuring interviews with original band members, documenting a forgotten chapter of Somalia's cultural history. Before the upheaval in the 1990s that turned Somalia into a warzone, Mogadishu, the white pearl of the Indian Ocean, had been one of the jewels of eastern Africa, a modern paradise of culture and commerce. In the music of the Dur-Dur band -now widely available outside of Somalia- we can still catch a fleeting glimpse of that golden age.

Also available: DUR-DUR OF SOMALIA VOLUME 1 & 2 (2CD) (CD).
