Limited vinyl reissue of the amazing *Rock Africa* album from 1977 by Malinga Five. a short-lived group made up of French. Caribbean and African artists.

Released in France by Barclay, this hard-to-find afro-funk LP spawned a number of disco hits including an exhilarating uptempo version of Black Blood's 'Marie-Terese', plus the unstoppable bubbling funk magnificence of 'Kalimbo' later remixed by Bob Sinclar and the superb 'Kaloule Woman', a beautiful joyous track laced with intricate guitars and percussion with a great soulful vocal. Standouts aside, the whole album is fantastic from start to finish including hi-octane percussion workout 'Tambouye', laid-back funk groover 'Good Time' and blissful sensuous ballads such as 'Song For My Lady', the elegant jazz-funk of 'Vin Eve Nou', afro bubblers such as 'Kou Ma Ho' and 'Mankchine DouDou' and the synth-heavy 'Malinga'.
