Afrofunk: Dikalo - African Sound (GET IT)

Ultra rare LP including, among others, three monster afro funk cuts : "Going to Afrika", “Fine Biscuits” with dope breaks, "I Know" and “Old Fisher Man” with wild wah wah and organ. Very obscure group from Cameroon featuring the great Eko Roosevelt ("Kilimandjaro My Home"). 


Eko Roosevelt was born Louis Roosevelt Eko on November 13, 1946 in Lobé-Kribi, Ocean Division, Cameroun. Fleurs Musicales du Cameroun writes, "Eko is a great pianist, an excellent organist, an accomplished guitarist and a firts-class conductor and musical arranger. And if that were not enough, he also sings."
