Black Star & Lucky Star Music Clubs- Nyota
A collection of Taarab (Swahili wedding music...but don't let that turn you off) recording from a revolving cast of Tanzanian musicians from '69-'76, but sounds like an album by the same band from one session (all recording amazingly done with only one microphone).
I love the sound of cheap instruments...
Keeps energetic, but never goes over the top...good porch music in the sweltering heat.
