Review

Two years ago, Ostinato Records was granted access to the bulging archives of Radiodiffusion-Television de Djibouti (RTD) in order to compile a series of releases showcasing the best of East African music of the last 50 years. This fine compilation showcases some of the results of the label's tireless digging. It focuses on music recorded by 4 Mars, a 40-piece Somalian supergroup which was initially established by a political party. Musically it's an astonishing melting pot of sounds and styles, with Somalian vocals rising above fuzzy 1970s synthesizers, funk guitars, North and East African rhythms, jazz and soul horns, surprise Asian instrumentation and, intriguingly, nods towards Jamaican reggae. The result is a range of vibrant, Kaleidoscopic cuts that genuinely sound like nothing else around.
