12" EP

Very first compilation focusing on the golden age of music from the Portuguese-speaking African islands of Sao Tomé & Principe - 16 tracks selected will surely set fire on all dance floors ! Sao Tomé & Principe, located in the Gulf of Guinea, created an unique music called Puxa : a refined mixture of various musical components from both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. A blend of Semba, Merengue, Kompas, Soukouss, Coladeira patterns, often pushing forward with a voodoo-like energy, solid bass lines, delicate melodies and backing harmonies of the rich Sao Tomean melodic traditions.
