Officially licensed, remastered reissue of a rare and obscure experimental jam from Rotterdam, Cor Corora by Nyra Bakiga, original copies of which have been selling for upwards of £300 on Discogs
Produced by Peter Graute and Martin Van Der Leer, who ran the punk/new wave label and record store Backstreet Backlash Records, Cor Corora is an exploratory journey that sounds light-years ahead of it's 1981 release. Warped, crunched beats, twisted guitars and space echoed delays lay the foundation for Nyra's sublime vocals - who was the wife of an African ambassador in the Netherlands, where her paths crossed with the Backstreet Backlash duo.
Unsurprisingly the likes of Daniele Baldelli and Beppe Loda were giving Cor Corora rotations in the early days of the Italian Afro Cosmic scene and the track is still a prized possession in the record bags of some of the best selectors around, including everyone from Peanut Butter Wolf to Manfredas.
