Organ-driven Afro-beat, cosmic Afro-funk and raw, psychedelic boogie … just some of the flavours to be found on this highly danceable compilation by Samy Ben Redjeb, founder of Analog Africa. No effort has been spared!

To document these 15 irresistible tracks and the music scene from the 70’s, Samy crisscrossed the lengths of Ghana and Togo in search of the producers and artists – or their relatives. In the process he recorded a dozen interviews, scanned 90 pictures and transferred 120 master tapes. All the evidence can be seen in the 44-page full colour booklet accompanying these 75 minutes of heavy West African sounds.

“Afro-Beat Airways” showcases an amazing diversity of local rhythms spiced with Afro-American funk, soul and jazz.

These tracks have been hiding for 30 years and as you will hear these are modern African sounds created to stand the test of time. “Afro-Beat Airways” is like a time capsule, and promises to take you on a fascinating musical journey through West Africa’s vintage Afro sounds.
