With 40 tracks over 2CDs, ‘Cafe Africa’ offers a fantastic snapshot of often overlooked African music. From the opener ‘Tom Hark’ by Elias and his Zigzag Jive Flutes (you may not recognise the title or the artist but you’ll know it as soon as you hear the opening bars!) to more pop sensibilities with ‘Mbube’ which formed the basis of ‘The Lion Sleeps Tonight’ there is something for everyone including contributions from Miriam Makeba, ‘Little’ Lemmy Mabaso and the Kings Messengers with all tracks digitally remastered.
