NilamayeLas Flores Del Sol ... LP
Bongo Joe (UK), 2017. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
A contemporary group, but one that draws upon a huge tradition of Afro-Colombian sounds – pulled together by its members through travels that have taken them through all the many different regions of their diverse nation, and served up in a very spare style that mostly just features voice and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Nomade OrchestraEntreMundos ... LP
Far Out (Brazil), 2017. New Copy ... $16.99
A second great set from Nomade Orchestra – a Brazilian group who bring a trans-global approach to jazz-based instrumentation – with a resulting sound that's unlike anyone else we can think of! These guys aren't in the usual Brazilian groove, and they're also not like some of the Afro ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

OchoOcho 1 ... LP
United Artists, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
The rare first album by Ocho – and a killer batch of Latin tracks that breaks down all definitions of the music! Ocho were a seminal group in the NuYorica scene of the early 70s – blending soul, funk, Latin, jazz, and other styles into a groove that was perhaps a bit too complicated ...

Sonny OkosunLiberation ... LP
Shanachie, 1984. Very Good+ ... $3.99
US issue of some of Sonny's African recordings from the early 80s. The groove here is afro-pop, with crisp guitars and a lighter beat than Fela's style of afrobeat, but with similar cascading horn parts. The production's a bit slicker too, with the vocals pushed way forward in the mix. Titles ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia, 1966. Very Good- ... $4.99
Babatunde Olatunji goes even more drum-crazy than before – working here with no less than nine percussionists, plus a host of singers as well! The tunes have a very rootsy groove throughout – instrumentation that only comes from the rhythm instruments, some of which are pointed towards ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Abdou El OmariNuits De Printemps (with bonus download) ... LP
Radio Martiko (Belgium), Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
One of the coolest keyboardists you'll ever hope to hear – an artist who can take a cheesy-looking instrument, and turn it into something that sounds ancient and exotic! This album may well be the most perfect distillation of the talents of Abdou El Omari – as most tracks just feature ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Oneness Of JujuSpace Jungle Luv ... LP
Black Fire, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
A fantastic record from one of the greatest underground jazz groups of the 70s! Oneness of Juju are perhaps best known for the heavy funk of their first album, African Rhythms – but we're actually partial to this second album – a warmly spiritual batch of soul jazz tracks, and a set ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Luaka Bop, 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 20.99
The sound of tomorrow, circa 1979 – as Afro groove pioneer William Onyeabor works his magic on a host of extended tracks – finding a way for earlier funk modes to move into leaner styles for the 80s! The music here has plenty of keyboards and basslines, but is maybe less totally ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A legendary East African band – finally given their due on the international scene! The set's got all the sharp edges and rich charms of older work by Orchestre Les Mangelepa – but there's also a focused clarity, and maybe even a maturity of presentation that's really nice too – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Orchestre Poly-Rythmo De CotonouSkeletal Essences Of Afro Funk – 1969 to 1980 ... LP
Analog Africa (Germany), 1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $23.99
The title gets it perfectly right on this sweet little set – as the grooves are raw and stripped down – often just to the core elements of Afro Funk! The music may be the most hard-hitting we've ever heard from this legendary combo – and it's served up beautifully in this well-sel ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
