This compilation spotlights a diverse range of contemporary African artists, from the James Brown-inspired funk of Bama & The Family, to the percussion-heavy grooves of Pierre Osinibi, and Ethiopian sounds of Zafari. It's modern music that recalls the heyday of Fela Kuti, Tony Allen, Mulatu Astatke and others, painstakingly curated by Mr Lehman and released by the ever-reliable Truth & Soul crew.
