David Byrne delves deep into his Luaka Bop and other archives to give you twelve slices of West African funky, poly-rhythmic psychedelia! Incorporating elements of rock, soul, latin and psyche into Afro-beat grooves from artists as diverse as Manu Dibango, Gasper Lawal and Orchestre Poly-Rythmo de Cotonou, this is an essential addition to the growing range of global psychedelic classics and will certainly appeal to fans of "African Scream Contest", "Nigeria Rock Special" and the Analog Africa series!

Highly recommended!!
