This gets even better on Makossa Pop where the bubbling, propulsive rhythms and exuberant vocals dance around a beautiful synth melody line. The B-side opens with a melodious mid-tempo number of an introspective nature titled Mussango. The style reminds one of 1970s Congolese/soukous but is not exactly the same. N’Dolo, the first ballad, has a fragile, yearning quality whilst the title track returns to the catchy rhumba style of the first three; This And This stands out as a percussive gem amongst a selection of brilliant songs .

B3 This And This 5:01. This obscure masterpiece by Tokoto Ashanty (also spelled Ashanti) released in 1979, offers a variety of styles from the slow and soulful to the buoyant and rhythmic like the first track N’Gondo, an up-tempo dancefloor rattler. Ashanty's vocal virtuosity impresses throughout, working in perfect synch with the mix of guitars, bass, drums, percussion and keyboards. The superb arrangement where long vocal notes alternate with exclamations over lilting rhythms on Mouna Papa creates a hypnotic sonic blend.
The Pop Makossa adventure started in 2009, when Analog Africa founder Samy Ben Redjeb first travelled to Cameroon to make an initial assessment of the country’s musical situation. He returned with enough tracks for an explosive compilation highlighting the period when funk and disco sounds began to infiltrate the Makossa style popular throughout Cameroon. Indeed, all the tracks on Pop Makossa are a revelation. The beat that holds everything together has its origins in the rhythms of the Sawa people; Ambassey, Bolobo, Assiko and Essewé, a traditional funeral dance. But it wasn’t until these rhythms arrived in the cities of Cameroon and collided with Merengue, High-Life, Congolese Rumba, and, later, Funk and Disco, that modern Makossa was born.
