I don' t know so much of Afrcan music but I have some "souvenir" from any of my vacation. It is my custom when I go to other country for vacation to take some "music sample " with me when I come back to home.
Today post was a souvenir from Kenia (I was there but I don' t know were the music come from) and I offered 5 dollars to a taxi driver to give me the cassette he was playing in the car-stereo. So that is the source and sure the audio quality is not at the top but just to understand what SOUKOUSS music is. The cover is probably not the right one but that I found on the web.

The Marshall Tucker Band has to be mentionded at least for their long career (more than 40 years). Songs like "Searchin' for a rainbow " or "Fire on the Mountain" can be considered "classic pieces" of this kind of music.
They start their career later in the '60 with hits in the '70 than through the '80, '90 and again. Really a neverending story.
