Black Soul Music

As I mentioned before in a previous post highlighting Buari's Disco Soccer", I've been really getting into rare 70's African disco. Besides Buari, another African disco group that has recently caught my eye is Black Soul. This 6-piece disco-funk outfit actually resided in France, however because of their sound, became more tied into the Afro Funk scene during the 1970's. In 1975, this group released the classic LP Brasil Africa, which featured some solid disco-funk themed tracks like "Mangous Ye", "Kaye Tchi Senegal", and my personal favorite "Black soul Music". Legendary producer/mixer Tom Moulton eventually got a chance to work with the group, and later they were released his mixes on another LP put out by Beam Junction. Overall, the record is another good insight into the engaging African disco-funk scene of the 1970's.
