‘African underground of 1980s Paris’ - a different setting for blue 1980s Dance Pop
‘A series dedicated to cross-cultural experimentation, kicking off with this exhilarating dive into the African underground of 1980s Paris: a four-track EP from Congolese singer Albert Siassia, backed by a group of young French dreads, rechristened Tokobina — “let’s dance,” in Lingala — for the occasion. A mixture of post-punk, rumba, afro-disco and reggae, in two dancefloor sureshots reviving their sole 12” from back in the day, plus previously unreleased fire from the same session.’
