Muziki Wa Dansi [Africasette, 1995]
Showcasing four cynosures of the Dar es Salaam dance circuit, where they rotate nightly from neighborhood to neighborhood, and ever since I read the notes I've wanted to go there. It would be boorish to single out the tune sense of Orchestra Maquis Original, so I'll merely grant that it may take a while for individual tracks to sink in, and promise that they will. Postsoukous Tanzanian style, rough and sweet in all the right places.
