1. Product Details
Vinyl LP pressing. EKO Roosevelt Louis has had a music career spanning over 40 years born the grandson of a Kribi tribal chief his musical persuasion beginning humbly with his villages local church before his formal education at the Senegal conservatoire and Paris Ecole Normale de Musique. EKO then cut his teeth making jazz funk and disco records in the mid-seventies before extensive touring in and around France. In the 90s EKO returned to Cameroon to take over his grandfathers tribal chieftaincy a role he still holds today. EKO also works with the Cameroun artistic societies and schools performing teaching and even leading Cameroons national orchestra. For this Africa Seven foray we take a trip to 1979. Funky Disco Music was EKOs third LP. It is locked-on with the sound we here at Africa Seven like and after what seemed like ages we finally tracked EKO down in Cameroun and persuaded him that a reissue was most definitely needed. The LP opens up with the bright and uplifting disco-swing gem and title track Funky Disco Music. Punchy horns afro rhythms and groovy bass From Vicky Edimo power this groover along before mixing straight into the jazz-funk-disco hybrid Ndolo Embe Mulemadolo. Taking its cue from the age - Paris 1979 - Une Chanson Sans Paroles is a French power pop meets afro swing belter to keep the LP tempo high. To close off side A is the gloriously uplifting Bowaa Mba Ngebe. Dripping in positivity and goodwill this feel-good disco gem was a recent highlight of our African Airways 04 compilation. Side B opens with the afro-folk meets pop Doi Da Manga. Next is Me To A de Try My Own and Esele Mba Musango Na Ndolam with their locked on bass grooves and afrobeat grooves. The LP closes with the smooth ballad jazz of Emen Ango. The heartstrings are all a flutter.
