Pan-African Hour: African Rock and Roll Part 1 (Jan 19, 2011)

Rock and Roll never caught on in Africa like other US styles like jazz, funk or hip-hop. But it did have an impact, especially the psychedelic rock of the 60s. When we heard some of these track we had a hard time even believing they were African, cus were just not used to blazing fuzzy guitars in African music. Starting off with a more 50s rock and roll sound, most of the rest of the episode is of the 60s/70s variety of rock and roll. From San-Francisco style trip outs to the African version of Black Sabbath (check out Chrissy Zebby Tembo and the Ngozi Family), here is a rare form of African music. Some key albums: Love, Peace and Poetry Vol. 8: African Psychedelic Music, Nigeria Rock Special, The World Ends, and Next Stop...Soweto Vol. 2.

Jimmy Solanke and the Junkers - Eje Ka Jo
