Swiss crew Alma Negra have long been amongst the world's leading purveyors of electronic-acoustic, percussion-rich global fusion, so it's little surprise that their latest self-released EP is another top-notch release. The standout is undoubtedly title track 'Harambee', a sparkling and infectious chunk of Afro-disco brilliance full of Chic style guitar licks, bi-lingual vocals, groovy bass and ear-catching electric piano licks. French Afro-disco revivalists Violaa chip in with a late '70s sounding tropical disco take, too, adding in hazy horns to add extra authenticity. Elsewhere, 'When We Used To Dance' is a joyous chunk of revivalist, synth-heavy Afro-boogie and 'La Gozadera' is a high-octane chunk of Afro-Latin fusion propelled forwards by a hectic beat and lots of lush South American percussion.
