Pour Me A Grog: The Funana Revolt in 1990s Cabo Verde / Various Artists (Ostinato Records)

This compilation curates eight tracks from a short period in the late ‘90s when cherished pioneers, who risked everything to give their proud culture a sound, were finally put in recording studios; an album in itself a revolt in favor of the music of the most marginalized and once deliberately silenced.

“Fine, fiery, furious music” — BBC Radio 3
