va -- Furusato: Early Enka 1930's & 50's [Tristes Humanistes Mixtape]


Here's a comp of haunting Enka music from Japan. Side A is all girls (except Fujiyama Ichiro) from the 30's, and side B is all boys from the 50's. The 30's songs have a crazier sound, but also the arrangement is wilder. The 50's recordings usually feature strings and the voice is louder in the mix.

The picture on the cover is that of Katsutaro Kouta.

El-Hadj Wasiu Kayode As-Sideeq & Alfa Qamardeen Yusuff (Ayeloyun) -- Opeloyeru [Tape Rip]


If I am not mistaken, this is a 2002 tape of islamic Yoruba music from Lagos. I bought this tape in Dalston Market in London, from a miserable looking stall. The cassettes were litteraly covered in earth, but under the plastic they were brand new and in perfect condition (did the earth protect them from the sun?).

Since the music doesn't stop in between the songs and the beat stays the same, I made only two files ─ one fer each side. The tracks are:

A1. Opeloyeru
A2. Gbese Oni Wole Tomi
A3. Allah Ya Allah
A4. Foriji Mi

B1.Duniyana Hasanata
B2. Iwo Baba Iwo Momo
B3. Moni Allah Nile
B4. A O Maa Kirun

Below are videos of El-Hadj Wasiu Kayode As-Sideeq (who I suppose to be the singer on side A) and Alfa Qamardeen Yusuff aka Ayeloyun (side B).
