Front cover

Buarque (not to be confused with the Brazilian musician Chico Buarque) is the name of the 7″ by the Angolan singer Buarque, accompanied by Conjunto Merengue.
The record, released in 1975 in Luanda (Angola), contains two songs: A Kalunga Nguma, and on side B Tua Kua Ngola Tua Xixima.

The front cover uses a tightly spaced Franklin Gothic Extra Condensed. The back cover follows the same grid as most 7″ records issued by Merengue, with additional typefaces such as Greco, Futura, Forma and Eurostile.
