The first-ever vinyl pressing of Zap Mama's debut, wholly-acapella album from 1991.

Originally self-titled (and re-christened "Adventures in Afropea" when it was later reissued on David Byrne's Luaka Bop label), the album has influenced hosts of vocalists and musicians worldwide.

The brainchild of founder and leader Marie Daulne, Zap Mama consisted at the time of five young women who, inspired by their mixed African/European origins and by the cosmopolitan environment of their hometown Brussels, created a wonderful acapella body of work incorporating influences drawn from Congolese pop, Arabic tunes, Pygmy polyphonics & more (including a touch of gospel and of medieval Spanish chants), guided above all by their wild imagination.

It became one of Crammed’s all-time best selling records, was nominated for a Grammy, and topped the Billboard’s world music chart.
