Kanté Manfla: Mosso Gnouma (Boogaloo) (Djima, 196?, 7″)

I was writing the other day about Afro-Latin music…out of Africa and this track by the Ivory Coast’s Kanté Manfla highlights that tradition with a deliberate spin on New York’s boogaloo style. I love examples of how music criss-crosses regions to create spin-offs like this, especially with how soulful this version becomes thanks to those guitars.
