Born Bad Records present Psychedelic Sanza 1982-1984, a thrilling collection of material from Cameroonian artist Francis Bebey. A follow-up to African Electronic Music 1975 - 1982, this release focuses on music built around the sansa, a traditional African 'thump piano'. Combining his own global interests and electronic pursuits with the traditional sound of the sansa, he fashions an irresistible body of work for full immersion. 'Sanza Tristesse', with its lilting tempo and creaking vocals, could fit in any 80s disco set, while 'Forest Nativity' is an earthy nature walk. This collection is not to be missed.
