Region: West 70s

With their chicken-scratch guitars and skull-violating wah-wah organ, Benin legends Poly-Rythmo sound no less wickedly funky in their recent reincarnation than during their '70s heyday. Mali quartet SMOD contains both MCs and acoustic musicians, one of who happens to be Amadou & Mariam's son. Tanga & the Selenites conjure a particularly Parisian blend of afrofunk and falsetto soul. Dutty Artz affiliate Chief Boima provides vintage vinyl and other afromedia.
