Speaking of soundtrack. If you haven’t seen Shaft In Africa, you better get started. Punch, kick and a ton of horns!

Couldn’t help myself. Gal Costa’s beautiful voice takes you on a journey through a Brazilian forest in shining moonlight. Don’t spill your drink.

Modern groove from the french Kif label. Pumping away with that crazy horn section. Really, really tight.
