18 EUR
Super Mama Djombo orchestra, Guiné-Bissau, West Africa. All songs recorded in Lisbon, 1980 - re-mastered from the original reels. Six archive recordings are now available on vinyl for the first time.. 
In the early 1970's, the Mama Djombo underground orchestra played mostly for secret political rallies supporting the PAIGC, the major Independence Movement for Guiné and Cabo Verde. Adriano Atchutchi became the bandleader after independence, bringing a book full of his songs. Atchutchi recruited singer Dulce Neves, adding creole sweetness to its already heady mix of juvenile enthusiasm, candid melodies and touches of luso-tropicalism.
