Mogadisco - Dancing Mogadishu Somalia 1972 - 1991 (2xLP)

Release date: December 13, 2019
Label: Analog Africa
Syle: World Music
After being blown away by a few tunes, Samy Ben Redjeb travelled to the infamous capital city of Somalia in November of 2016, making Analog Africa the first music label to set foot in Mogadishu. Mogadisco was not Analog Africa's easiest project. Tracking down the musicians to interview them and gather anecdotes of golden-era Mogadishu has been an undertaking that took three years. Tales of Dur-Dur Band's kidnapping, movie soundtracks recorded in the basements of hotels, musicians getting electrocuted on stage, others jumping from one band to another under dramatic circumstances, and soul singers competing against each other, are all stories included in the massive booklet. CD, comes with a full color 36-pages booklet containing 50 pictures & full digital album as a high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
