African Offering, feat Nomo, Orgone, Bosq...

Great new compilation from Ubiquity Records: "African Offering" is a 17-track sojourn through Ubiquity's catalog of Afro-inspired tunes from NOMO's excursions into Afro-beat and Electronic music, to the Lions' Funk-tinged Reggae meets Soul, to Bosq's modern take on the Afro-disco sound.

Other gems include the horn-driven Funk of Brooklyn hard-hitters Ikebe Shakedown, library-inspired tunes by Shawn Lee's Ping-Pong Orchestra, percussion-driven Funk by Orgone, and heady Jazz from the Afro Latin Vintage Orchestra.

To round out the compilation the Warsaw Afrobeat Orchestra pay homage to the diversity of the African musical diaspora with 2 songs from their upcoming debut album."
