Os Tubarões – Djonsinho Cabral (from Djonsinho Cabral 1979)
When Lldo Lobo, lead singer of Cape Verde’s’ most popular band died, everyone got the day off work. Os Tubarões’ (the Sharks) music is sorta Morna, sorta old school Funana. This is a lot slower than what people on the islands in 2009 are doing. I’m not so big on the saxophone, but it’s a nice tune overall that I figured I’d throw up due to the attention that island has been getting.
Radioclit’s recent Fu Na Na mix is pretty good by the way, though absolutely not strictly Funana. Gant Man Puerto Rican Juke and stuff.
