{Pre order} Mushapata : Saba-Saba Fighting (12’’EP) « A Fantastic mixture of Brakka, Reggae & Afrobeat recorded between 1980 and 1984 from the underground Afropean boxer Mushapata » Pre order Vinyl ==> akuphone.com/catalog/3FlMbnBJwku#content Buy Digital ==> akuphone.bandcamp.com/album/saba-saba-fighting “Saba-Saba Fighting” or fighting for peace, is the message that Mushapata, a legend of the African reggae underground scene in Paris with an extraordinary destiny, has fought for all his life. Born in Bukavu, a city nowadays located in the Democratic Republic of Congo at the border with Burundi, Mushapata arrived in France at the end of the 1970s to pursue his career as a boxer. A few years later, revolted by the professional sports industry, he became a personal protection agent on the advice of his manager. He escorted many celebrities among whom Bob Marley during his legendary French tour of 1980. This encounter awakened the musician hidden behind the boxing champion. Mushapata had stepped out of the ring but he kept fighting with music, lyrics and his band Saba-Saba Fighting. Ignored by the record labels of the time, his first self-produced recordings reveal a rough mix of lo-fi reggae, afrobeat rhythms accompanied by a brass section close to Free jazz. The nonchalant sounding voices of Mushapata and Tshayi complete this explosive cocktail and carry, in Swahili language, the Pan-African ideas of Lumumba and other great figures of African-American struggles. This maxi single, conceived as a mini-compilation tribute, includes 4 titles from the first two albums recorded between 1980 and 1984. Including liner notes (en/fr). Limited edition!

(Boomkat.com product review) Laurent Jeanneau aka KINK GONG takes us to the Buddhist holy land of Tibet, or “the roof of the world” with a particularly mesmerising new episode of his augmented sonic travelogues issued by the excellent Akuphone, rather than his usual home of Discrepant. If you’ve never heard any Kink Gong records, this is a really great place to get acquainted with what he does; basically taking dozens of hours of location recordings made during extensive travels around Asia, and then post-processing them into stunning collages which retain the character of the source material, yet radically re-compose it as something else entirely, giving a richly impressionistic feel for whatever region he’s focussing on. In that sense, Tibetan Buddhism Trip fully live up to the promise of its title, implying a psychedelic treatise on the remote Himalayan region which comes captivatingly alive thru layers of mind-bending chants, slow thumping percussion and chiming bells in the 1st half, then with massed polyrhythmic clangour of traditional drums, processed horns and swarming street noise in the 2nd half. We urge you to give this one a whirl. It’s far cheaper than a return trip to Lhasa, and almost as intoxicating as we’d imagine it to be! https://boomkat.com/products/tibetan-buddhism-trip https://akuphone.com/catalog/xlB4b2J#content AKU1006 : Kink Gong : Tibetan Buddhism Trip (LP/CD/DL)
