Jakarta Radio – Somali Disco Mix: Au Revoir Mogadishu [Mixtape]

Posted on August 17, 2015 by


As you might know thru our Habibi mixes we have a passion for music from far away places. We came across this great mix of the golden days of Somali music by Caykh recordings. Sounds from before the war, songs from before the beautiful city of Mogadishu became a battle ground for 2 decades.

“This Mix of 70’s and 80’s 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. I spent some months finding, compiling and editing rips of TV and live recordings on old VHS tapes and radio broadcasts to cassette tapes and here is what I got. Enjoy! With love from Mogadishu.”
