    The follow up to the highly acclaimed "Space Echo" compilation is another offering from the magical Cape Verde islands. 

    In 1997, a quiet, unassuming man of 59 years old named Victor Tavares - better known as Bitori walks into a studio for the very first time to record a masterpiece which many Cabo Verdean consider to be the best Funaná album ever made.

    Another sterling effort from the Analogue Africa camp!
