VA - Music Message! Pop From Cameroon 1976-1979




This is the first mixtape I made with music from Cameroon, this one capture the years 1976-1979. The music is full of positive engergy, some kind of uptempo pop or soul music - I think this is makossa or asiko (maybe a crossover), maybe high life, I think it's too early for bikutsi (for example). To me it sounds like groovy afro Pop, sometimes with a flavour of soul or funk, but the music sounds very near to their own culture. Right now, it's time to - shake your hips brothers and sisters!
