World Cup Mix...Syliphone Records

Following on from BigFace's inclusion of the Fela tracks and with the African World Cup only round the corner I thought we needed some more African rhythms running through our heads. This is a mix not compiled by me, but Frank. Thanks Frank.

The musicians on this mix all hale from Guinea, a country who aren't actually in the WC but to hell with it, they sure know how to make some darn good, foot tappin, horn blowin' music ;) Enjoy.

If you want to stream the mix go here.

And if you want to download the mix go there.

And for bonus points, without looking at a map who knows the capital of Guinea?? I for one don't but I will be looking.


  1. Conakry- Just had a look at this dude's website, I have a feeling it's going to take up a lot of my time!

  2. Good work Jez. What a website.

  3. Yes! Nice one Duke!
    Read about this dude a while ago and then, like so much awesomeness one discovers, promptly fogot about it until now. I'm glad that our brains are alligned.

    Watching the football on a massive video wall at work today, this will provide a delicious soundtrack to the intro.
