New Afro Latin Vintage OrchestraPulsion ... CD
Ubiquity, 2014. New Copy ... $12.99 16.98
A darker groove than usual from this hip European combo – a record that still has their commitment to global sounds at its core, but which also comes across with these great 70s electric modes too – almost echoes of Dark Magus Miles Davis and Sextant Herbie Hancock – thanks to ... read more CD

New AntibalasWho Is This America? ... LP
Ropeadope/Daptone, 2004. Very Good+ 2LP ... Just Sold Out!
The most outwardly political album to date from Antibalas – and quite possibly the funkiest one too! The set's got the group really grooving hard in their 70s Afro Funk-inspired vein – jamming at a level that would make Fela Kuti blush – working together with a fierce array of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Black HippiesBlack Hippies ... LP
Academy, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 18.98
Hardly the kind of hippies that were always hanging around when we were growing up – as these guys are super tight, super funky, and right on the money throughout – grooving hard in one of the most searing styles of Afro Funk we've ever heard! Older psych modes are turned towards the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Paco De LuciaLive One Summer Night ... CD
Philips (Spain), 1984. Used ... $6.99
A wonderfully rich extrapolation of the sound of Paco DeLucia – still served up with all the intensity of his solo guitar work of the 70s, but also with some additional instrumentation that helps bring out a stronger jazz vibe too! The approach is different than Paco's early jazz flamenco ... read more CD

New Aby Ngana DiopLiital ... CD
Awesome Tapes From Africa, 1994. New Copy ... $11.99 14.98
Really unique music from Aby Ngana Diop – a poet as much as a singer – and one who speaks here over some really raw, really driving music that's plenty heavy on percussion! The sound is quite different than other Senegalese styles you might know from the time – as the sabar and ... read more CD

New Alkibar GignorLa Paix ... LP
Mississippi, 2012. New Copy ... $8.99
A group with a great blend of old and new modes – a mix of rootsy sounds from their native Mali, and some more focused guitar lines that really help revolutionize their music! The notes bill Alkibar Gignor as a "garage rock band" – and while we think that's a bit of a stretch ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Miriam MakebaKeep Me In Mind ... CD
Reprise/DRG, 1970. Used ... Just Sold Out!
One of Miriam Makeba's hippest albums – recorded with slightly funky arrangements that really give her a different sound!

Beautiful grooves from the Nigerian scene of the 70s – a set of really unique grooves, and the only-ever album from the enigmatic Mebusas!

Strawberry Rain, Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99 26.98
This rare African gem has a cover that looks a bit like an American soul record of the time – and the overall sound is definitely on the more soul-based side of the Zamrock spectrum!
