V/A- Angola 60's: 1956-1970

"Buda Musique's [Angola] series...captures the sounds of different ethnic regions within Angola, their effects on each other, and the way that the Portuguese and Cuban influences were absorbed into urban Angolan culture. Some songs focus on close polyphonic harmonies, tapping rhythms and ringy, simple guitar melodies; others have cascades of creaky percussion and huge choruses; still others anchor on the accordion. It starts to get really interesting around track nine, when the frenzy slows, turning to fabulous intimate, small-scale recordings that you can't tell if are Latin or African in origin. By the end of the disk, they've brought in the electric guitars, jumping up, incorporating more Western chord progressions and swinging funk rock, especially on the classic, screaming 'Muzangola' by Vum Vum. Can't wait for the rest!" (Other Music)

Good stuff. 320kbps. If anyone's got a line on a better scan, hit me up!
