Belter/Pharaway Sounds (Spain), 1977. New Copy ... $25.99
A totally cool trio from the 70s Spanish scene – one who have Andalusian roots, but work here in a sweet mix of funk and soul! The group trade vocals back and forth in a very cool way – two guys and one gal, really sounding like even more than that as they sing – and the ...

Barney WilenMoshi (180 gram pressing – with bonus DVD) ... LP
Saravah/Souffle Continu (Italy), 1972. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $38.99
A wild and groundbreaking record recorded by the great French tenor player Barney Wilen! Although he got his start as a bebopper in the 50's, Wilen sort of dropped out of sight by the end of the 60's – and only emerged from time to time to cut strangely experimental sides. This record is ... (Jazz, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Little Axe, 1987. New Copy ... $16.99
Sweet Cambodian pop from the 80s – recorded by two artists who'd emigrated to Portland, then issued this album only on cassette back in the day!

Guerssen (Spain), 1970s. New Copy 2LP ... $21.99
The second set of 70s recordings by Afghan compiled by Guerssen – the first set was strong and eye-opening – but the songs here are straight up beautiful!

Gayap/Cree (Germany), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99 29.98
A totally great little record that refers to itself as "calypsojazz innovations" – but which is even better than that label might make you think! The groove here is hardly calypso – as it's funkier, chunkier, and a much more heavy take on inspirations from the islands than we' ... (Jazz, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Black Sweat (Italy), 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
Weird and wonderful work from Zeit – an Italian group, but one who seem to embrace a whole world's worth of influences with their music! The work is heavy on percussion – including congas, tablas, darburka, and other instrument – mixed with string sounds on berimbau, guitar, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

We've had some great trips on Africa Airways in recent years – and this sweet fourth set proves once again that the fun lies in the journey, not the destination!

Amazing work from the Senegalese scene of the 70s – easily one of the hippest musical hotspots on the African continent at the time, as you'll hear by the wonderful tracks on this set!
