  • Rare Cape Verdean synthesizer dance music recorded in Europe in 1984 - Fuses Cape Verdean Funana rhythms, electric guitars & synthesizers

Continuing Ostinato’s series of Cape Verde 45s showcasing diasporan
bands that are staples in Europe’s Cape Verdean communities, Ostinato
Records presents timeless dance music for the summer by Conjunto
Jovens Africanos, founded by Ze Orlando, a respected producer originally
from São Tomé. Formed and originally based in Lisbon, the band fused
raw Funaná rhythms from the Cape Verdean island of Santiago with
syncopated electric guitars, raucous synthesizers, relentless percussion,
and addictive vocals that kept their compatriots on their feet across little
known Krioulu nightclubs in Europe’s major cities. First released in 1984,
Conjuntos Jovens Africanos’ “Nhu Jhon” and “Volta Pa Terra” are stellar
representations of modernized Funaná’s endless energy.
