✨✧ Bilal AbdurahmanSound, Rhythm, Rhyme & Mime For Children ... LP
Folkways, 1971. Very Good+ ... $59.99
Way more than just the kids record you'd guess from the title – and instead, one of the cool earthy percussion records cut by Bilal Abdurahman for Folkways! The format is that of an introduction to sounds and rhythm for children – and the set mixes some spoken bits with some ultra-cool ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Legendary reedman Idris Ackamoor is strongly back in action – working here with a new version of his classic Pyramids group from the 70s – with a groove that's every bit as righteous as their classic albums from back in the day!

King Sunny Ade & His African BeatsBobby ... LP
Sunny Alade (Nigeria), 1983. Very Good ... $11.99
Like so much of Sunny Ade's work released in Africa, this album has a much less slick approach than those released in the US. The familiar elements of JuJu are all here, gently percolating percussion underneath layers of gently arpeggiated guitars, with some wonderful melodies fluttering over top. ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Sunny Alade (Nigeria), 1981. Fair ... $3.99
A nice side of JuJu from the originator of the Afro-pop style, with layers of gently bubbling guitars and percussion underneath some sweet pentatonic melodies. 8 pieces in all on the African only release, including "Omo Se Koko", "O-Wo-Wo Obele", "Odun Titun" and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Mr Bongo (UK), 1969/1975. New Copy ... $11.99
Two Ethio funk tracks with a heck of a lot of power! Mahmoud Ahmed is on the a-side – singing in that beautifully melancholy style of his, while the backing group his this funky groove with chunky organ and some nicely peppered horns, too! There's more great organ on "Ene Negn Bay ... (Funky 45's, Global Grooves) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record
