Marc Nkodo David - Marco Star African Xyl

(Marc 001).

This album has been recorded at Radio Cameroun studio, probably in 1983. Marc Nkodo David plays the solo guitar, name of the band being Marco-Star. The recording is not perfect but the music is very interesting rhythmically. During one song he explains that the rhythm they're playing is  called "angazuma" (engagement?). Any additional info is welcome.
Other tracks are soukous, including a groovy bass line, and uptempo percussive guitars (5 different guitar players on the album, sometimes close to polyrhythms performed by traditional balafons).
