From Senegal to London, ‘Diamonds, Gold & Mobile Phones’ is the second, self-produced album by Edd Bateman’s West African Love Affair, this time recorded in the troubled Casamance region of Senegal. The debut featured 15 guest musicians from 8 different West African nations, dueting with Edd on songs he had written in the traditional genre of their respective countries. These new songs have retained the vibrant percussive and melodic complexity of traditional African music and subtly fused it with contemporary electronica.

Expect to dance until you can’t stand!
