It took me nearly six month to bring you another African single.
This is Super Tembessa from 1974/pre-EMI-era (see Moos share with a 1977 LP from 2010 here).
So please enjoy!

To me and the Internet Orchestre Beloza is nearly unknown. Composer Assi Kapela later had some LPs, one had been shared by Moos (here). One of his 1980s songs can be found on my earlier post: here on the African Hits Vol. 1.
Beautiful music for my "comeback". Enjoy!

In 1982 Warner released a compilation double album which reflected the idea of Peter Gabriel to open a path from African, Asian and American music to the ears of British rock and pop audience. We find some of the interesting British pop bands and artists(Beat, XTC, Peter Hammill, Jon Hassell), as well as acts from around the world assemble to promote the World of Music Arts and Dance now well known as WOMAD.
It was kind of a beginning of the World Music marketing label.
We also find Rico Rodriguez with an early version of "What You're Talking 'bout" which was released the same year as "Junge Music" on the 2Tone label. The song remained a core part of Rico's live programme all over the 1990s into the new century.
