As we all know, there are times when nothing suits the mood except vintage Somali disco music. If this is one of those times for you, you're in luck. Here are a couple of hip-wiggling hits from the magnificently titled "Mogadisco: Dancing Mogadishu (1972-91)".
"Mogadisco" was released last year on the always excellent Analog Africa label. Among many other triumphs, Analog Africa were responsible for drawing the world's attention to the band with the greatest name ever in the history of great band names. Click on the link and see if you can work out who I mean. Then buy their album. And "Mogadisco".
"Geesiyada Halgamayow" - Bakaka Band
"Check Up Your Head" - Mukhtar Ramadan Iidi
And then, when you've finished checking up your head, don't forget to check up on your baby.
I've got that album! And that band would certainly be in my Top Ten band names list.ReplyDelete
Me too, on both counts. I think they have featured on these humble pages, unless my memory is playing tricks on meDelete
