‘Au Revoir, Mogadishu’

The striking Au Revoir, Mogadishu mixtape, a collection of pre-war songs from “the golden days of Somali music, sounds from before the war, songs from before the beautiful city of Mogadishu became a battle ground for 2 decades. The 45-minute Somali mix runs through a number of selections from the likes of Dur Dur Band, Waaberi, Qadiijo Qalanjo and several other acts.
This mix of 70s and 80s Somali sound is a rich blend of traditional Somali folk music infused with Western funk, rock and reggae and a touch of Indian, Arabic and African flavors. There are hardly any proper releases of this soulful sound of guitar, synthesizer and drums.
Jakarta Records and Caykh Recordings.
