VariousDoing It In Lagos – Boogie, Pop, & Disco In 80s Nigeria ... CD
Soundway (UK), Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99 17.98
Damn great work from the early 80s Nigerian scene – music that's evolved strongly past the Afro Funk of the 70s, and often has the same electro soul sound as work from the US at the time! These cuts are unabashedly upbeat, and aimed at the dancefloor – full of the kind of basslines and ... read more CD

This second volume in the Ethopiques series focuses on the resurgence of contemporary music in the wake of the censorship-heavy Derg era.

VariousEthiopiques Vol 3 – Golden Years Of Modern Ethiopian Music 1969 to 1975 ... CD
Buda (France), Late 60s/Mid 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 16.99
Volume 3 of this Amazing collection of Ethiopian pop/jazz/soul recorded 1969-1975. Volume 3 is more clearly influenced by American soul music than other volumes – and the songs mix more traditional Ethiopian styles with grooves of the JBs and Curtis Mayfield variety. A great place to start ... read more CD

VariousEthiopiques Vol 5 – Tigrigna Music: Tigray/Eritrea 1970-1975 ... CD
Buda (France), Early/Mid 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 16.99
One of the oddest and most wonderful volumes in this great series of rare Ethiopian music! Tigrigna Music is sung in the Tigrigna language – which is here interwoved with excellent off-kilter guitar parts, some of them twangy and weird, others tight and folkloric. Underneath the whole thing ... read more CD

Volume 6 of the fantastic Ethiopiques series is an expanded re-issue of the first lp by Mahmoud Ahmed plus his first single from 1971.

Another great volume of Ethiopiques! Volume 7 of Ethiopiques series is another expanded re-issue of an LP by Mahmoud Ahmed originally released in 1975. Though there seems to be an abundance of songs by Ahmed from 1975 on volumes 1 and 3, we can't find any overlap with the songs on this album. ... read more CD

The 9th volume in this incredible series – and they're still going strong! The groove here is a mixture of funky tunes and more jazz-driven numbers – wonderful work from Ethiopia in the early 70s, with a range of influences that's incredibly hard to describe. There's bits of James ... read more CD

Buda (France), 1970s. New Copy ... $11.99 16.99
Excellent stuff – even if this volume isn't as funky as other numbers in the Ethiopiques series! Instead, the tracks are soulful and bluesy numbers – half vocal, half instrumental tunes, with a really dark approach, and backings that are spare and extremely haunting. The vocalists are ... read more CD

One of the rootsier CDs in the Ethiopiques series – a set of work from the Konso subculture, mostly spare numbers performed on the kihayta, a really haunting stringed instrument that's vaguely like the lyre. Most of the tracks feature the kihayta, along with vocal and percussive ... read more CD

Buda (France), 1974/1976. Used ... $8.99
Tremendously enigmatic work from Ethiopian singer/musician Asnaqetch Wergu – 70s recordings that feature mostly her thin, reed-like vocals, with instrumental backing by the "krar" – a lute-like instrument of triangular shape, featuring tightly-drawn strings that are plucked in ... read more CD

A stunning set of vocal recordings by Tlahoun Gessesse – one of the most important singers during the golden age of Ethiopian Music – caught here on a set of sides that sadly saw that period coming to an end! The tracks on the set are mostly from the years 1974 and 1975, a time that ... read more CD
