French West Africa French: Afrique-Occidentale française, AOF was a federation of eight French colonial territories in Africa: Mauritania, Senegal, French Sudan now Mali, French Guinea now Guinea, Ivory Coast, Upper Volta now Burkina Faso, Dahomey now Benin and Niger. The federation existed from 1895 until 1958. Its capital was Saint-Louis, Senegal until 1902, and then Dakar until the federation's collapse in 1960. French Africa. Album Tracks. About & Images.

The Ghanaian bands featured on Afro-Beat Airways were not so fortunate these recordings were left uncollected in Accra for more than three decades by PolyGram West Africa until Analog Africa discovered them. It's a treasure trove of 1970s Afro-rock, from the itchy, guitar-driven James Brown-style funk grooves of the African Brothers Band and K Frimpong & His Cubano Fiestas, to the infectious organ-driven dance-pop of Uppers International, which has some of the rolling, cyclical appeal of Fela Kuti, but administered in a less overpowering manner.
