Formed and originally based in Lisbon, Zé Orlando's Conjunto Jovens Africano fused raw Funaná rhythms from the Cape Verdean island of Santiago with syncopated electric guitars, raucous synthesizers, relentless percussion, and addictive vocals that kept their compatriots on their feet across diaspora in little known Krioulu nightclubs in Europe’s major cities. First released in 1984, Conjuntos Jovens Africanos’ “Nhu Jhon” and “Volta Pa Terra” are stellar representations of modernized Funaná’s endless energy. EU Import.
