Item ID: 480097

Continuing Ostinato's series of Cabe Verde 45s showcasing diasporan bands that are staples in Europe's Cape Verdean communities. Ostinato Records presents timeless dance music for the summer by Conjunto Jovens Africanos, founded by Ze Orlando, a respected producer originally from Sao Tomé. Formed and originally based in Lisbon, the band fused raw Funaná rhythms from the Cape Verdean island of Santiago with syncopated electric guitars, raucous synthesizers, relentless percussion, and addictive vocals that kept their compatriots on their feet across diaspora in little known Krioulu nightclubs in Europe's major cities. First released in 1984, Conjuntos Jovens Africanos' 'Nhu Jhon' and 'Volta Pa Terra' are stellar representations of modernized Funaná's endless energy.
