• hamad kalkaba & the golden sounds Hamad Kalkaba & the Golden Sounds 1974-1975 (CD, £14.50)

    label: Analog Africa

    Neglected for decades by all but the most devoted collectors of Afro music, 'Hamad Kalkaba And The Golden Sounds' at long last gathers together the complete body of work of one of Cameroon's forgotten geniuses, which consists of 6 tracks on 3 7-inches only. These are raw classics with fuzzed-out bass and pin-sharp horns, built upon the unshakable foundation of Northern Cameroon's mightiest rhythm: the Gandjal.
