Adam's Pick of the Week: Brigth Engelberts - Tolambo Funk

One of the lesser known of an already under appreciated crop of African soul and funk from the 70's. Like many of his contemporaries, Engelberts and his band were cribbing from American and British soul, but always adding a flair of the traditional music they group up on. What comes out is not dissimilar to Africa by Amanaz, Lijadu Sisters, Witch's discography, or even Fela Kuti.

Due to the music's familiar, but different vibes, it's always a good one to throw into your DJ sets (real and imagined). Everyone feels like they've heard it before, even if they haven't. Either way, they'll be into it after you play it for them - unless they, you know, don't have ears.
