It's all about Africa

Finally I will see my friend Sean Rogg's art exhibition. Just a few hours left. I have no idea what's happening in Romania with Jonny Puma and Arnie Becker. Maybe they have been bitten by female vampires by now...
I think we all know by now that we all come originally from Africa, and that includes even the music. Listen to these African up-tempo songs and you will understand where the origin of all modern dance music comes from.

Ethiopian groovy up-tempo song.
This song is the original and you probably heard many versions of it.

Fela Ransome Kuti & Africa 70 - Roforofo Fight
This song is sampled by Fatboy Slim on his first album. The song is First Down. So it's time to dig through your old Fatboy Slim collection...
