This is a live recording from the Heimatklänge Festival 1990 in Berlin. It's been recorded from the soundboard plus 2 microphones above the stage, no remix, no overdubs.
The band is "Orquestra Os Jovens Do Prenda" (The Boys From Prenda) from Luanda, Angola, founded in 1965, and we hear 13 musicians on stage. They have overcome 30 years of civil war, from the initial members only one has survived.
Angolas Top Band adds to the four hands of two xylophone players not less than four electric guitars (bass included). There is not only lead and rhythm guitar, but also a contra-lead guitar, which accompanies all solo parts in transposed harmony. Add a five-person percussion section, a brass section and the best singers in the country and you will get an irresistibly grooving show.
In 1989 a contract was signed for their appearance at Heimatklänge Festival in Berlin, still it was a real adventure to get them here. By 1990 communication in Angola had completely broken down, but the communist government of Angola had an attaché in East Berlin, then capital of communist East Germany. 3 days before the concert date he flew to Angola and within 48 hours organized passports and tickets and brought the musicians to East Berlin. Still they had no visas for West Berlin. But with the Berlin wall open they were smuggled across the border by night. The East German policemen didn't care and the West Germans didn't notice, because these guys are black as the night. Read the booklet for more information, it's in English and Portughese because Angola was a colony of Portugal before the Civil War.
