The people at Africa Seven unearth another lost gem with Charly Kingson’s 1978 LP Born in Africa. Kingson - cousin of Manu Dibango, no less - recorded this album after relocating from Cameroon to Germany. It’s a record of popping synth-funk and hi-life disco, with tracks like ‘Nimele Bolo’ and ‘Nanga ‘Boko’ still sure to set the dancefloor on fire. Kingson’s cracking voice, part Maurice White and part Fela Kuti, remains front-and-centre throughout.
