Voices of Africa LP bundle offer
VOICES OF AFRICA
Exploring the voice has always been an exciting part of the Real World Records catalogue and some outstanding vocal performances come courtesy of musicians from Africa who have recorded for the label.
This special Bundle Offer – which equates to 30% off – allows you to purchase four LP from African artists for one great price.
This offer is available in conjunction with a campaign we’re running over the next few weeks where we’ll be digging deeper into key albums by African vocalists, from Geoffrey Oryema’s beautiful 1990 Exile, to Les Amazones d’Afrique’s République Amazone, released in 2017 and which celebrates modern African women. Follow us on social media to see some rare and as-yet-unseen photos and video footage from the archives as we rediscover these great albums.
Les Amazones d’Afrique – République Amazone
Les Amazones d’Afrique are an all-female collective from West Africa, united in calling for freedom and equal rights and against violence towards women, strong in the belief that music can support social progress and trigger a change of attitude. Whether undisputed stars or up and coming young artists, these are among the most admired musicians, and indeed the most influential women, in West Africa.
Geoffrey Oryema – Exile
Originally released in 1990, Exile introduced the world to the struggles of singer-songwriter Geoffrey Oryema, exiled from Uganda at a young age. Contributors include Peter Gabriel and Brian Eno.
Ayub Ogada – En Mana Kuoyo
Ayub’s disarmingly simple arrangements, warm vocals and delicate playing of the nyatiti, an East African lyre, make this a beautiful and sensitive album. Originally released in 1993, the album is available here for the first time on vinyl.
Papa Wemba – Emotion
Papa Wemba was the undisputed King of Congolese Rumba Rock; a flamboyant and outspoken musician who took his soukous rhythms from the streets of Kinshasa to the world. Emotion was originally released in 1995 and is available here for the first time on vinyl.
You can also choose to buy the above LPs individually, plus a number of other African artists also included in our Voices of Africa campaign. These individual LPs and CDs can be purchased with a 25% discount by using the code >> realworld25 << at checkout.
