Fantastic funaná LP from Cabo Verde artist Pedrinho. Great diversity of tracks, from dancefloor to slowjams, coladera's and psychedelic organ & guitar workouts.
Funaná is a music and dance genre from Cabo Verde, and is accordion-based music. The rhythm is usually provided by the ferrinho. On this LP the accordian is mostly replaced by the Farfisa organ and other keyboards.

Originally from 1979, this LP was one of the biggest successes from Cabo Verde music. Singer Pedrinho moved to Lisbon when he was 18 years old, and recorded this album, the first one of his career. Aleluia was produced in Rua de S.Bento, Lisbon, Portugal. This street was also where Pedrinho come to live when he arrived in Portugal, like the majority of the musicians and emigrants from the old African Portuguese colonies move at that time, to try a new luck. A big community grew here and these artists got the opportunity to record their own traditional music by the hands of local labels.

This is the reissue of this now classic album from 2018 on the Portugese Mar & Soul label.
