In the hot and dusty Gaza province of Mozambique there is a small lake called Ghorwane that never runs dry, even in the hottest season. In 1983, a group of young musicians in Maputo, Mozambique, took this name as they launched their musical career. Today, Ghorwane is one of Moambique's most respected bands. Ghorwane base their sound on traditional Mozambican rhythms combined with Afro-pop and fusion to create a sound where the best Afro beats meet African jazz. It is a mixture of traditional

If you have to pick ''the classic'' Sam Mangwana album, this would be it. He worked with both Franco and Rochereau, so he had the pedigree by the '70s to do whatever he wanted. Mangwana's earthy, rumba-heavy protosoukous is a pleasure to listen to. Each guitar line from Syan M'Benza or Sammy Massamba seems to go on forever, as Mangwana croons (and croon is really the right word) about love and life and girls, girls, girls and the band spurs him on with sinuous and sultry (never either lewd or

In The Rough Guide To Salsa (Second Edition) compiler Pablo Yglesias has selected tracks guaranteed to get your feet spiralling round the dance floor and especially sequenced to simulate an evening at a salsa club, with the pace ranging from beginner's

Zairean soukous has rarely transcended the nine-minute title track of this 1984 album recorded during the apex of the era in M'bilia Bel's career when she shared the Orchestre Afrisa International with her husband, Congolese star Tabu Ley Rochereau (from whose backing chorus she had emerged). Bameli Soy demonstrates why Bel went on to become the first female African superstar: train-track drums, a singing horn section, and Tabu Ley's molten-gold guitar lines wrap themselves comfortably around

This 1991 recording of a polished but unslick city band on the order of Marrabenta combines local rhythms with touches of soukous in the horns, a notably eastern African sound in the guitars and an indefinably Portuguese/Brazilian undertow. The really extremely individual and attractive result is enriched by the solo sax playing of Jose ''Seca'' Alage, who was murdered by street thugs in 1993. by John Storm Roberts All Music.
