2010 release. A retrospective "discovery price" sampler featuring a choice selection from some of Soundway's favorite tracks they've released from 2001-2010. From the highlife, disco, and rock sounds of '70s Nigeria to the golden age of Panamanian music, Benin's Afro-Latin grooves, Colombia's champeta and all other forms of tropical and Afro sounds imaginable, Afro Tropical Soundz Volume 1 is an essential introduction for music fans who are new to African, Latin, and tropical music and also a superb overview for fans of the label. For the first time ever, Soundway mix and match both sides of the Atlantic from the west coast of Africa to the Caribbean islands, the Isthmus of Panama and beyond. Presented in a brown Manila CD digipack, this collection clarifies Soundway's unstoppable thirst for unveiling forgotten chapters from some of the world's richest musical cultures. Soundway's mission is to present the very best in obscure A-sides, B-sides, and album cuts that have remained unavailable - until now. Artists include: Ebo Taylor, Fruko y Sus Tesos, Papi Brandao, Lito Barrientos, Oscar Sulley & The Uhuru Dance Band, Les Loups Noirs de Haiti, The Sweet Talks, The Action 13, Los Silvertones, Celestine Ukwu, and Orchestre Poly-Rythmo.
