1. Au Revoir, Mogadishu Vol. 1 — Songs From Before The War (Mix by Caykh Recordings) (AUDIO).

    Çaykh says: “This Mix 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. 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.”
