Kumasi - I Know You Feel It
Kumasi
I Know You Feel It
12" | 1982 | US | Reissue (Smiling C)
25,99 €*
Release:1982 / US – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
Much anticipated re-release of South African disco funk outfit Kumasi's catalogue! Incl the known tunes Picnic (Moger) & Anomakoliwa. Strong from start to finish! TIP!
Kumasi was a group comprised of Ray Phiri, Jabu Sibumbe, Isaac Mtshali and Lloyd Lelosa. Sometime between their formation as The Cannibals (*needing reissues*) and the almighty group Stimela, Kumasi released one album and a couple of singles. The artists had contracts under Gallo and couldn't reveal that they were linked to the music in any way, leading Kumasi to have only a brief mysterious run in the early 80s.
But the secrets out! This release presents a collection of five songs from their incredibly rare full length LP, and adds to that their version of the South African classic, ‘Picnic’. Pressed as a 2x12” compilation, sounding incredible! Kumasi brings a unique blend of disco funk with that special South African tinge.
Ray Phiri died in 2017 - this album goes out in dedication.
Kumasi - Akoben
Kumasi
Akoben
LP | 2018 | US | Original (Superjock)
21,99 €*
Release:2018 / US – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Akoben is the second vinyl release from New Orleansʼ own full Afrobeat orchestra, Kumasi. Thirteen members strong, Kumasi has been keeping crowds dancing in the clubs, festivals, and crawfish boils of New Orleans for several years now. Kumasi plays original compositions heavily influenced by the musical style created in Lagos by Fela Kuti and Tony Allen in the early 70s. While the first album, Togetherness, was entirely instrumental, Akoben is laced with call-and-response vocal performances.
A perfect record for the dance floor while also sparking conversations about the current political climate in the US and beyond...
