DELUXE LP in TIP-ON jacket + Linernotes

 

Rare funk & Avant-Garde soul from a seven years old kid singer featuring the best of French and Cameroonian musicians diaspora, recorded in Paris in 1977.

The album contains two nicely dramatic tracks:

“Look Up in the sky (Negro nature)” is a stretched funk groove with psyche synth by Michel Morose, bubbling bassline by the great Victor Edimo, the famous Toto Guillaume on guitar, and a brilliant poetic song by Francis The Great, who at that time studied in Menilmontant (Paris).

“Ravissante  Baby (Negro Phasing)”  is a long hypnotic funky soukous track with a tremendous lead guitar and a long spoken-word and soulful kid vocal about the beauty of nature.

Originally produced by his father, a great impresario of African artists in Paris during the 70s, and coordinated by his mother, this album is unique, fresh and out of genre in a way! It’s universal Funk!

Hot Casa Records is proud to reissue this holy grail after years of researches! It comes out in a deluxe LP including interview, and officially licensed with Francis Mbarga himself, in Yaounde (Cameroon).
