The rich musical history of West Africa has had an incalculable influence on modern music, especially the polyrhythmic elements which helped to define Jazz, Rock, Funk, and other popular Western styles. But influence is a two-way street so many modern forms of African music have incorporated music from Latin America, The US, and Europe. The region has scores of styles from traditional regional music to Afro-Pop, including Griot music from Mali, Highlife from Ghana, Nigerian Afrobeat, nomadic desert drones from the Tuareg group Tinariwen, and Senegalese Afro-Cuban fusions. This is just a small sample of essential West African albums.Favourite Share
Real Groovy's Queen Street store is temporarily closed from 5pm Wednesday 25th March. But many of our staff members will be processing second-hand LPs, CDs and DVDs from home, and we will continue to list those online. We will also add new releases as the data comes through.
However we may not be able to dispatch these until the Level 4 Alert is lifted. Instead, items that you order will be set aside for you for delivery when business is back to normal.
We will not be able to enter into communication with customers, and emails will clog our system, so we encourage you to save your queries for later.
Please subscribe to our newsletter for updates, so that you know when the store and website are open for business. It's on the bottom right corner of the home page and you can always unsubscribe.
