Releases by matata

Hard funky soul with an Afrobeat backbone from Matata,who arrived on the London scene (via Kenya)in the mid 70s! Matata leaned mightily on the JBs for their groove, and laid out a heavy, rock solid variation on JBs funk with an African percussion base of congas and bongos at the core. The horns take a more Afrobeat tack, too, with punchy blasts and solos peppering the numbers. Read more on Last.fm.
