From Nigeria to Colombia

Soundway continues to add to their impressive catalog with these two releases that dropped last month.

The World Ends showcases a wave of guitar-driven and psychedelic groups that sprung up in Nigeria during the early 1970s and represents the sound of a generation attempting to pick up the pieces after the devastation of the Nigerian civil war.

Palenque Palenque! reveals a unique and fascinating story of how Afro-Colombian music developed from the 1970s onwards and how the local sound-systems in Cartagena and Barranquilla played such an important role in shaping the sound of the Colombian champeta.
