MatataWanna Do My Thing – The Complete President Recordings (Air Fiesta/Independence/bonus tracks) ... CD
President/RPM (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99
Some of the heaviest funk recorded on the UK scene in the early 70s – courtesy of a Kenyan group who were making their home in London at the time – and cooking up music that was a fantastic blend of soulful modes from both their homeland, and the world of American funk and soul! These ... read more CD

MatataWild River ... CD
President (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $3.99 19.98
Swirling Afro soul from Matana – with lots of African rhythms and heavy percussion laced with some trippy elements from the psychedelic scenes in the US and UK! Matana arrived in London, via their native Kenya in the early 70s – and rather seamlessly blended elements of soul, and on ... read more CD

M'BaminaExperimental ... LP
Fiesta/Africa Seven (UK), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99
A set that's a lot more funky than you'd guess from its "experimental" title – a record that's right on the money, in a sweet blend of late 70s Afro Funk styles! The group have a tightness that's maybe more West Africa via Paris than some of the sounds from back on the continent ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Chris McGregor's Brotherhood Of BreathCountry Cooking ... CD
Virgin, 1998. Used ... $9.99
One of the few later recordings by Chris McGregor's Brotherhood of Breath – and one that was done for a major label, and almost marketed as a world music album! Despite that fact, though, the set's still very firmly in McGregor's jazzy mode of the past – yet also certainly touched by ... (Jazz, Global Grooves) read more CD

Academy, 1973. New Copy ... $11.99
Beautiful grooves from the Nigerian scene of the 70s – a set of really unique grooves, and the only-ever album from the enigmatic Mebusas! There's kind of a tripped-out feel to some of these tracks – Afro Funk, but taken left of center from the style of Fela – thanks to some ... read more CD

Hailu MergiaHailu Mergia & His Classical Instrument – Shemonmanaye (with download) ... LP
Awesome Tapes From Africa, Mid 80s. New Copy 2LP ... Just Sold Out!
An incredible blend of sounds and styles – and one of the most enigmatic albums we've ever heard from the Ethiopian scene! Hailu Mergia plays alone here – but uses lots of overdubbing to layer together Fender Rhodes, accordion solos, and a rhythm machine – all mixed up in ways ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Mighty FlamesMetalik Funk Band ... LP
PMG (Austria), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99
The Mighty Flames never sound too metallic here – at least not in any way that's cold or harsh, or heavy metal too! Instead, these guys have a warm groove that's on the tighter side of African funk – that point when the sound was getting a stronger influence from American soul and club ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

PMG (Austria), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99
Bala Miller's got a great pan-African group here – one that's more from the western side of the scene, despite the pyramids mentioned in their name – with players hailing from Ghana, Nigeria, and Cameroon – all coming together in a mighty righteous style! The music is fairly ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
