Title Sabor A Fresa
Title Darkest Light - The Best Of
A conglomerate of US musicians based in France between 1971 and 1979, the Lafayette Afro Rock Band was originally formed as the Bobby Boyd Congress in 1970 before escaping the crowded US funk scene to relocate to France a year later. Re-naming themselves as Ice, they began performing regularly in the North African Barbès district of Paris and caught the eye of producer Pierre “Berjot” Jaubert, before becoming the house session band at his independent Parisound studio.

Title Los Africanos
Label Acid Jazz
In the mid 70s producer and latin music hustler Bobby Marin took a bunch of his mates into the studio and recorded a Nuyorican funk masterpiece. He named the group Los Africanos, and then….nothing happened. The master languished in the back of a cupboard until Bobby played it to award winning compilation producer Dean Rudland who immediately recognized the recording as a missing gem that simply had to be released. So he brought it into Acid Jazz and finally after three decades Los Africanos have arrived with an LP of big chunky, funk filled grooves.
