You've been pretty deep into South American music for quite a while now, Psy-Fi: it seems like ages ago that we were dipping into desert blues together, so here's a reminder for you of how it can sound:-

^ That one was new to me.

It's been a few months since I last listened to any of that stuff. This is my most recent discovery in the genre...

Though, I was already familiar with her via 'Les Filles de Illighadad.'

A re-release of a compilation which was originally released in 2006...





Hallelujah Chicken Run Band - Take One (2020)





Quote:
In 1972, the country of Rhodesia – as Zimbabwe was then known – was in the middle of a long-simmering struggle for independence from British colonial rule. In the hotels and nightclubs of the capital, bands could make a living playing a mix of Afro-Rock, Cha-Cha-Cha and Congolese Rumba. But as the desire for independence grew stronger, a number of Zimbabwean musicians began to look to their own culture for inspiration. They began to emulate the staccato sound and looping melodies of the mbira (thumb piano) on their electric guitars, and to replicate the insistent shaker rhythms on the hi-hat; they also started to sing in the Shona language and to add overtly political messages to their lyrics (safe in the knowledge that the predominantly white minority government wouldn’t understand them). From this collision of electric instruments and indigenous traditions, a new style of Zimbabwean popular music – later known as Chimurenga, from the Shona word for ‘struggle’ – was born. And there were few bands more essential to the development of this music than the Hallelujah Chicken Run Band.

The name Les Filles de Illighadad looks familiar; if so, it's prob from an earlier rec of yours, Psy-Fi.

Sometimes, it's not the recommended artist themselves that you pick up on, but another artist mentioned inside that rec. It was while checking out Hallelujah Chicken Run Band that I came across this compilation album: Sweet As Broken Dates:-

Bandcamp album link: https://ostinatorecords.bandcamp.com...horn-of-africa

This track from the album, by the Sharaf Band, has a medium-paced ramshackle sound that I really like:-

The lady on that cover looks like she hates the record.

That's true! She looks horrified by how the typeface of the title worked out.
I like the cover though: the colours, the retro-style graphics and the little glimpse of vintage Somalia.
