Muungano Cultural Troupe

Muungano Cultural Troupe – Volume 17 Mambo Yapo Huku

Taarab music from Tanzania’s long-running and legendary Muungano. This tape gets the award for wily, sinewy and swirly lo-fi keyboard tone of the year. Similar in crucial melodic and rhythmic ways to my earlier faves from Dar es Salaam, Jagwa Music. Stop by Afropop Worldwide for extensive cultural/social/political background on taarab in general.
