Lilly Tchiumba - Songs of my people - Monitor US 1975 VG+/VG+

0 €
Like most music from the former Portuguese colonies, Lilly Tchiumba's Angolan music has an inimitable touch: A percussive music, reminiscent of indigenous traditions, euphoric, as Afro-Cuban music can be, and filled with a heartbreaking and even tragic nostalgia. Lilly Tchiumba, in the most solemn moments, by her voice and the arrangements that surround her, is not without evoking Cesaria Evora. This is an absolute, sadly unknown, masterpiece. US original press. Originally released in Mozambique (another former Portuguese colony) in 1973.
