Various Artists – Rough Guide To African Roots Revival LP (New)


This 180 gram limited edition LP of the finest tracks from ‘The Rough Guide to African Roots Revival’ includes a card allowing you to download this album to your portable music player, to deliver the perfect combination of audiophile LP quality and mp3 portability. In addition the download card gives you extra African Roots Revival tracks as well as our favourite source album by Kenge Kenge. This Rough Guide spotlights the front-runners of an explosive revival of African roots music. Listen to world-class artists, such as Staff Benda Bilili and the Bedouin Jerry Can Band, mix it up by infusing traditional sounds with the ultra modern, and by using ingenious homemade instruments, many of which are built from junk-yard materials. These are the sweet sounds of a movement which has not simply preserved, but truly reinvented musical genres with outstanding results.
