A top of 33 degrees today in Sydney, so though we should drop some more of that Soul music that should be played outdoors in tribute to that Sydney Sunshine. This one’s by funk power house Cymande from their 1972 self-titled release. Special thanks to Tom Crown @ Good Groove Records many years ago for putting me on to this one. Defiantly one of the gem’s in the music collection.
Also for those into African Music vibes be sure to keen an ear out for the African Film Festival fundraiser “MUSIC IS THE WEAPON’ that will showcase the amazing documentary from 1983 on FELA KUTI by the same name. The night will also feature Sydney’s own AFRO BEAT legends The Liberators play live in a rare personal tribute to some of their inspirations followed by Soul Of Sydney DJ’s & Friends paying our own special tribute with a solid dose of Afro-Beat & Afro-Funk sounds to close off the night.
Our 17th Mix is an African inspired musical excursion put together in honour of the musical legacy of FELA!. The Mix covers a massive amount of musical ground from Afro-Beat, Afro-Funk/Disco & even some 4/4 Tribal Club Grooves just to showcase the kinds of African musical flavours around today.
