Another recommended compilation, this one from Ostinato Records collects fascinating music from Sudan which was brutally repressed after a 1989 coup brought a hardline government to power. This is the sound of “old Sudan”, lovingly and carefully drawn together by a team of dedicated compilers - from hypnotic accordion and violin-led orchestras to frenzies of synth and drum-machines!
