Mar & Sol presents the new album of the legendary band África Negra,"Alia cu Omali".
New songs and some popular classics recorded between Lisbon and S.Tomé.
This album Its a reflection of the old rumba and soukous music that this epic band of São Tomé e Príncipe got us used to.
They are an icon and one of the main bands of this island, representing in their music the authenticity and culture of the former Portuguese colony on the equatorial meridian.
It is our mission to expand this culture and here it is the testimony in our series of Luso Afro music which could best represent São Tomé.
Order of LP and CD (expanded with two bonus tracks) versions, at our band camp page, worldwide distribution by Rush Hour
supported by 4 fans who also own “África Negra - Alia Cu Omalí”
What a wonderful surprise it was to hear the Cuban song "El Carretero" on an album of Senegalese music! I'm familiar with the song from a modern hiphop-ified version on Putumayo's "Latin Groove" CD but this older, more traditional recording is pretty special in its own right. There are so many other great songs here, too. Scott
