All Africa
12" Single 
Price: $15.79

Product Notes

Limited 10" vinyl pressing of this single from the British jazz/soul singer and songwriter, based in East London. On 'All Africa', Zara McFarlane re-casts a landmark track by Max Roach. Taken from We Insist!, his 1960 album born of the US' then-ascendant Civil Rights Movement, it saw avant-garde jazz used as vehicle for protest. With Roach and vocalist Abbey Lincoln at it's core, it nodded to the growing independence movements then emerging in several African nations. The original track's celebration of the present, past and future of Africa feels as relevant now as it did in 1960. Taking the original's all-out, percussive trip into a looser, more softly mesmerizing kind of territory, this new version combines pulsing rhythm with a brighter musicality.
