Continental, 1977. New Copy ... $13.99 16.99
The great second album from Ghana's K. Frimpong – backed by the group Vis-a-Vis (though billed in the title as his Cubano Fiestas) – a stunning blend of Ghanian Highlife music and rawer Afro Funk & soul! A few K. Frimpong numbers appeared on some of our favorite African ... read more CD

✨✧ Fumaca PretaImpuros Fanaticos ... CD
Soundway (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $9.99 11.98
A wonderfully fuzzy little set – created by a group who are clearly influenced by the best sounds of Tropicalia and other hip South American rock at the end of the 60s – influences that they use strongly to forge into their own wonderful sound on this set! The album's the group's ... read more CD

Gamelan Semar PegulinganGamelan Semar Pegulingan – Gamelan Of The Love God ... CD
Nonesuch (Japan), 1960. New Copy ... $13.99
Beautifully evocative work on the Balinese gamelan – music that's maybe not as sharp as other recordings from that particular island – with a warmly flowing vibe that comes from the melodic cascading of tuned percussion, vibes, and gongs! There's still a focused, rhythmic feel to the ... read more CD

Awalom GebremariamDesdes ... CD
Awesome Tapes From Africa, Mid 2000s. New Copy ... $11.99 15.98
A beautiful mix of ancient and contemporary modes – tracks that feature Awalom Gebremariam playing the Ethiopian krar, which is a lute-like stringed instrument – and the especially cool wata, which features just a single string, inflected with a bow! These elements are set to spare ... read more CD

Palm, 2001. Used ... $3.99
A stunning new album from Ethiopian singer Gigi – working here with Bill Laswell to craft a batch of timeless grooves sung in her native Amharic. There's a universality to the music – not just because of Laswell's talent for crafting a globally oriented groove, but also because Gigi's ... read more CD

GilfemaGilfema + 2 ... CD
ObliqSound, 2008. Used ... $4.99
The Gilfema trio's expanded here by the addition of two horns – clarinet and bass clarinet, which are both used to shade in the album's tones nicely – expanding the range of the core guitar, drums, and bass – with slightly angular elements and a great sense of color! As before, ... read more CD

✨✧ Nico Gomez & His Afro Percussion IncRitual ... CD
Omega/Mr Bongo (UK), 1970. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
Fierce funky grooves from the legendary Nico Gomez – a set cooked up in Europe, but heavy with influences from the other side of the Atlantic – from Havana all the way up to New York! There's definitely a Latin groove to the record – one that's similar to other Gomez productions ... (Latin, Global Grooves) read more CD

Kiki Gyan24 Hours In A Disco – 1978 to 1982 (LP style sleeve) ... CD
Soundway (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used Gatefold ... $6.99
Some of the funkiest, clubbiest work we've ever heard from the African scene of the 70s – great grooves that would be right at home on the New York dancefloors of the time! The style here is definitely drawn from disco, yet is a lot more funk-based too – more in the farther reaches of ... read more CD
