Berlin-based cassette label Caykh Recordings and Jakarta Records recently put together the striking Au Revoir, Mogadishu mixtape, a collection of pre-war songs from “the golden days of Somali music.” The 45-minute Somali disco mix runs through a number of selections from the likes of Dur Dur BandWaaberiQadiijo Qalanjo and several other acts.

“This Tape of 70s and 80s Somali sound is a rich blend of traditional Somali folk music infused with Western funk, rock and reggae and a touch of Indian, Arabic and African flavors,” explains Caykh. “There are hardly any proper releases of this soulful sound of guitar, synthesizer and drums. I spent some months finding, compiling and editing rips of TV and live recordings on old VHS tapes and radio broadcasts to cassette tapes and here is what I got. Enjoy! With love from Mogadishu.”
