Ivory Coast Soul :: Afrofunk in Abidjan from 1972 to 1982

With little fanfare from the mainstream, African music of the 60s, 70s (and to a lesser extent, the 80s-present) has seen a massive resurgence of late. From its wide influence on contemporary artists (some of whom have been accused of everything from gross appropriation to blatant ripoff) to the vast collection of compilations and reissues, it would appear that we have entered a period of unrivaled access to music that even a decade ago was mainly the provenance of crate-diggers and archivists.
