Super Mama Djombo – Sol Maior Para Comandante

From WorldService :

….The third volume, “Sol Maior Para Comandante”, is really another album in the Regard Sur Le Passé style, including a storyteller recounting the historic events. The difference with Bembeya’s Regard is the fact that the events (the heroic acts of Amilcar Cabral in the luta for the independance of Guinea-Bissau) weren’t from a (relatively) distant past, but from a few years before the release of the album!

Like the Bembeya classic, the album not only conserves a very interesting chapter of African history, but also offers some brilliant music from a country which has remained relatively underexposed in the study of and research into African music…
