This Analog Africa compilation of Amara Touré, the enigmatic Afro-Cuban musician from Guinea-Conakry, contains all of the 10 songs he released between 1973 and 1980. "Latin music, is it really foreign to us Africans? I don't think so. Listen to the drums, to the rhythm. It all seems very close to us - it feels like its our own culture," declared enigmatic singer Amara Touré. It is the late '50s, and Senegal is going crazy to the groove of Son Montuno and Patchanga. Brought to West Africa by Cuban sailors in the early '40s, these styles were immediately adopted by a flourishing music scene that did not hesitate to embrace the Caribbean sound, mixed it with their own folklore, and, in the process, created something new. Through the unique cultural fusion of West African and Caribbean influences, Latin music took on a new and unique sound - the format was reinvented.
