“The Future of Music Happened Decades Ago” – that’s the tagline for the record label Analog Africa. If you’re not familiar with them, you owe it to yourself to start listening.

Travelling Africa and South America, the incredibly dedicated Samy Ben Redjeb consistently unearths rare and unforgettable recordings. Often connecting with the original artists, he helps archive and distribute this diverse and utterly infectious musical history.

Mogadisco - Dancing Mogadishu / Solalia 1972-1991 is what’s I’ve been listening to a lot lately… but I’ve yet to be disappointed by any of the albums or compilations on Analog Africa.
