"
This new Oriki music compilation includes serious 1970’s afro dancefloor hits, surely a promising favorite among deejays, afrofunk and tropical music revival aficionados. Vinyl diggers can finally play some of Ivory Coast’s hardest to find deep funk, afrobeat, manding and tropical rhythms tunes recorded by such legends as Moussa Doumbia, De Frank Jr or Francis Kingsley. The consistent liner notes focus on the original label history, Société Ivoirienne du disque, based on interviews with the producer. Original unreleased pictures of the artists and 1970’s Abidjan city, a great artwork and a limited press gatefold double lp/digipack CD make it a beautiful collectible object. Compiled by pioneer African music digger and deejay extraordinaire Greg de Villanova, a legend among afro/tropical music collectors and deejays, it signs the great return of the dormant French record label which released such wonders as Orchestra Baobab’s “A night at club Baobab” or Moussa Doumbia’s “Keleya”.
