Here is a new mix with records that I found in N'Zerekore.
"Tropical Static" includes records from Guinea, Mali and Senegal of course heavily focusing on the Guinean side. Funk heads beware: This is not "club music". Big shout out to Chris Meserve who helped me to appreciate the more traditional side of African music and who therefore deserves all the blame for this one. Sorry about the sometimes pretty loud crackle... some of these records got played quite a bit by their original owners.
