Black Savage - Something for Someone (EMI)
Updated: Jun 4
Kenya, 1976. A revolution in society. This short-lived, but exceptional band creates a transfixing album, infused with the atmosphere of upsetting times. Powerful and raw, yet mellow, melodic and optimistic, their music truly fills the ears.
Something for Someone is a truly magnificent compilation of their best hits, ranging from Afro-rock to mellow psychedelic ballads and sentimental songs from a significant era for the Kenyan people, and for the post-colonial African continent as a whole. Save the savage is their message.
Best Songs: Kothbiro, Save the Savage, I don’t know what to do.
