Léve Léve : Sao Tomé & Principe Sounds 70s-80s Vol.1

27,00

The two Portuguese-speaking African islands of Sao Tomé & Principe, located in the Gulf of Guinea, created an unique music called Puxa : a refined mixture of various musical components from both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. A blend of Semba, Merengue, Kompas, Soukouss, Coladeira patterns, often pushing forward with a voodoo-like energy, solid bass lines, delicate melodies and backing harmonies of the rich Sao Tomean melodic traditions. Léve-Léve is the first ever compilation devoted to the golden age of music from these islands. Liner notes & research by Thomas Bignon. Out via Bongo Joe.
