Favorites from Portugal, land of the beautiful poetry and guitars of Fado music.

This kind of music (especially the danceable second half) makes me so ****ing happy it's incredible, like tears of joy happiness. I just stumble across songs like these accidentally sometimes but I don't know nearly enough about African music, so if we have local experts please throw all your recs at me

Yes, I also love this sound. I'll try to dig up some of my special favourites, but in the meantime, here's a thread by a strange character who has now left us: He liked Franco and the OK Jazz band so much that he put it in his user name:-

Franco's style varied quite a lot over the years, but here's a really nice one. On the Franco compilation cd i have, it says "If you had to choose one track to represent the OK Jazz style, this could be it.....a pan-African hit..." :


I found two bands whose style has a similar vibe to me, with lots of that sparkling elec guitar. Both bands started off as house bands of hotels in Mali. Not only that, they were playing in the same city (Bamoko) at the same time (from mid-70s onwards):

"Rail Band Du Buffet Hotel De La Gare" later morphed into the "Super Rail Band":



Les Ambassadores Du Motel De Bamoko" later became "Les Ambassadores Internationaux", with super-star members Kante Manfila (guitar) and Salif Keita (vocals), who both went on to have solo careers.
