Rocking the party and ramming the dancefloor is the first priority of this review of Latin styles in classic West African dance music, as it emerged with 1950s anti-colonialism, and ran on gloriously into the 70s. Drawn from exceedingly rare records, mixing the celebrated and unknown, this is the sequel to The World Is Shaking, and the companion of Marvellous Boy.
