African Movement

Here is a very funky Afro beat gem titled "African Movement" by Smahila & The S.B's. This rare track was featured on the group's 1977 self-titled album and is very reminiscent of the early recordings from Fela Kuti. The track clocks in at about eighteen-and-a-half minutes, and consists of many solid instrumental break-downs with some funky saxophone and guitar solos. Overall, a fine dose of Afro beat funk to get you through the rest of your day. Enjoy!
