CABO VERDE SHOW - Oh! Mylena / Bem Danca (1984)

Brandao Records, 002               


Evil synthesizer grooves from this big band from the small former Portuguese colony off the coast of west Africa, led by one Emmanuel Lima, who handles the Rhodes, Moog and Hammand organs, as well as vocals on 'Oh Mylena'. Full of Latin influences and reminiscent of Mozambican marrabenta.
