robble robble

from awesome african music-oriented blog Benn Loxo Du Taccu, we find this song, Tchop Tchop, by artist Humbertona. i'm totally obsessed with it right now.

it's traditional-based cabo verdian folk from the 1970s (for lack of a better description). apparently the album was banned by the portugese, as it was released prior to independence, and the colonial overseers were trying to suppress expressions of indigeneous culture. rereleased now by Morabeza Records. original post from Benn Loxo is here. enjoy!
