    Ostinato Records have been responsible for curating some exceptional compilations of African and Middle Eastern music, shedding light on localised scenes the rest of the world undoubtedly missed out on the first time around. 2018 saw them take a particular focus on pop music from Sudan, culminating in this document of a more culturally liberated era of Sudanese history. Touching and important.
