A slight hiccup as we work on some website improvements. Product info such as release date, format etc is usually displayed here, we are working to fix this. In the meantime, please drop into live chat if you have a question about the release.
Over the past couple of years, Acid Jazz have been re-issuing releases from the enigmatic Albarika Store label, a goldmine in Afro cuts from Benin, West Africa.
The latest instalment is the ultra-rare ‘Ogassa Original Vol. 1’, the first LP from obscure but ultimately brilliant Porto Novo group, Ogassa, from 1978.
Like many Albarika releases, it was recorded at EMI Lagos, giving a depth and fidelity that stands out in the realm of Afro rarities.
Reissued in full, with the original artwork, for the very first time, a must have for Afro collectors and completists alike.
