Absolutely amazing compilation. Takes you back to another time and another place. A lot less outside influence than Sudanese music you find in the 80s (not that that's bad), but certainly can hear the threads that run through. Great stuff!
Favorite track: Sala Min Shaaraha A-Thahab (Gold Streamed Down from Her Hair).
ShellacHead, the world music blog dedicated to 78 and 45 rpm records, is happy to present this compilation of incredibly rare tracks from Sudan's "Golden Age" of recording, the 1960s-70s. A hypnotic blend of traditional Sudanese sounds with influences from abroad, these legendary artists thrived during this brief period until authoritarian Islamists brought the Golden Age to an abrupt end in the 1980s.
