La Fanfarria Del CapitanLa Giravada ... LP
Tropical Diaspora (Germany), 2017. New Copy Gatefold ... $13.99
An Argentine group, but one who work here in a whole flurry of global styles – an inventive mish-mash of elements that even seems to have a slight Balkan flavor at times too! The core sound is a blend of romping rhythms and very right horns – held together by melodic currents on guitar and accordion, as well as both male and female vocals – all done without any remixing or programs at all, just live (and very lively!) instrumentation from the group! The music has a joyously leaping quality throughout, but also some nice melancholy currents amidst the grooves – and titles include "Nadi Te Quiso", "Via Nacionale", "Yayegue", "La Flor Y El Libro", "Valdivostok", and "La Marcheta".

Max CillaLa Flute Des Mornes Vol 1 ... LP
Bongo Joe (UK), 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
Traditional sounds from Martinique – but played in a very jazzy way by fluteman Max Cilla – whose instrument glides and soars over a range of lively percussion! The group features a bit of piano and bass, but the various drums really lead the sound – as does Cilla's flute, which takes on so many wonderful tones over the course of the album's nicely long tracks! The notes almost make the set appear to be more of an ethnographic album – but Cilla wrote all the tunes himself, from a very modern perspective – and recorded the album in Paris, with a very hip sound. Titles include "Ballad Dans La Foret D'Ajoupa Bouillon", "La Flute Des Mornes", "La Ronde Des Ecoliers", "Crespuscule Tropical", and "La Baie Du Robert". LP, Vinyl record album

Alain PetersRest La Moya ... LP
Bongo Joe (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $22.99
One of the most unique musical talents we've heard in years – finally given his due in this wonderful collection of work from the late 70s and early 80s! Alain Peters works in a style that's beyond description – a global mix of elements from both the Caribbean and Africa, but often given a slight South Asian spin, given that Alain spent a fair bit of time exploring the cultures of the Indian Ocean – which he weaves here into a hypnotic blend of percussion, guitar, and extremely evocative French language lyrics! Rather than stepping on and pilfering from a range of cultures – Peters is instead a unique citizen of the post-colonial world, and allows himself a boundary-less space to stretch out beyond any simple generic descriptions. If we had to try to relate this music to anything, we might say that it's at the level of some of the most perfect experiments on the Saravah Records label – with a similarly haunting, live-changing vibe. Titles include "Mange Pou Le Coeur", "La Rosee Si Feuilles Songes", "La Peche Bernica", "Wayo Manman", "Rest'La Maloya", and "Ti Pas Ti Pas N'Arriver". LP, Vinyl record album

Esther SuarezLa Bolognesina – Con El Arpa Trasandino ... LP
Mississippi/Little Axe, 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $15.99
A Peruvian singer with a very unique sound – recorded in a style that has her lovely voice lilting out over Andean harps and a bit of percussion – all in a mode that feels a lot more timeless than you might expect for a session from 1981! The strings ring out at times almost like American autoharp, but with different inflections – and Suarez has a way of talking at times, which comes across with some echo in the production – almost urging herself on to sing the lyrics more emphatically! Titles include "Libro Del Destino", "Agua Del Olvido", "Reguerdos Del Ayer", "De Broma En Broma", "Subida De Pucachina", and "Tres Palomitas". LP, Vinyl record album

Various2nd Festival De La Cancion Latinoamericana De San Francisco ... LP
Nucleus, Early 80s. Near Mint- ... $8.99
A compelling collection of underground Latin tracks recorded on the San Francisco scene – issued here by the Nucleus Records label, who were best known for their Bay Area Brazilian releases! The set features selections from a festival of Latin American styles in SF – and includes tuneful numbers in a variety of styles, all with vocals in the lead, and a mix of electric and acoustic instrumentation. You might think of these tracks as the indie side of Latin pop – especially for the period – and titles include "Mujer Joven" by Lorenzo Avila, "Promesa" by Patricia Leal, "Buscando Un Futuro" by Juan Rosales, "Vete" by Manuel Posada, "Amor Cobarde" by Juan Gomez, "Atras De La Montana" by Gloria Serrano, "Tu Fuiste Mi Primer Amor" by Lorenzo Avila, Abrazame" by Jorgte Salvador, and "Que Lastima" by Raymundo Lopez.

VariousDisques La Raye – 60s French West Indies Boo Boo Galoo ... LP
Born Bad (France), Late 60s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A whole host of cool Latin tracks from the French West Indies scene of the late 60s – not music that flowed to Guadeloupe or Martinique from Cuba or Puerto Rico – but fresh new sounds that were directly inspired by the boogaloo generation on the New York scene! The tracks here aren't straight Latin Soul – and they're hardly familiar Latin, either – and are instead this wonderful hybrid of elements, including some previous Caribbean modes – all fused into the tighter, shorter burst of energy that was unlocked once Joe Cuba and some of his generation discovered the smaller combo mode of Latin grooving! There's a nicely messed-up criss-crossing of sounds going on here – not the same as, but with similar energy to the Spanish Harlem scene at the time – on cuts that include "Jerk Vide" by David Martial, "Mais Tu Sais" by Dany Play, "Je Voudrais Danser Avec Toi" by Les Bois Sirop, "Sauvagement Sexy" by Gaby Siarras, "Sekirite" by Maurice Alcindor, "Tu Bois Beaucoup" by Le Ry-Co Jazz, "Disque La Raye" by Joby Valente, "Ou Que Di Moin" by Monsieur X, and "Ou Pas Z'Amis En Moin" by Henri Debs.

Global music of indeterminate origin, but indisputable beauty from Mississippi Records – from otherworldly vocals-only tunes, to lovely and lush arrangements – strains of calypso, Thai balladry, rural American yodeling, Hawaiian ukulele tunes, and beyond! There's no notes, but the mysteriousness is part of the allure! Includes "El Amanecer" by Roberto Y Su Orquesta Tipica, "Kuu Lei" by George Ku Trio, "The Arizona Yodeller" by The Dezurik Sisters, "Honey In The Rock" by Blind Mamie Forehand, "Oay Lahy E" by Hiran Ny Tanoran Ny Ntao Lo and more.

✨✧ VariousAgrim Agadez – Musique Guitare De La Republique Du Niger ... LP
Sahel Sounds/Mississippi, 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful collection of contemporary guitar work from Niger – as you might guess from the title – mostly songs in an acoustic mode, and captured in a very spare setting that really lets you hear the inflections of the different musicians! Some of this work echoes a west African blues tradition, other tunes are more folksy – and the few numbers with an electric guitar have a quality that's maybe a bit more linked to Tuareg modes. The package is one of the more beautiful we've ever seen from Sahel Sounds – and also comes with a well-done booklet that features plenty of notes on each artist. Titles include "Migrid Nou Hawan" by Fatou Seidi Ghali, "C'Est La Vie" by Mohamed Karzo, "Hey Joe" by Anza D L'Ader, "Anashua" by John Safokoley, "Imouhagh Siwlat" by Ahmed Ag Kaedi, and "Agrim Agadez" by Etran D L'Air.

✨✧ VariousVenezuela 70 – Cosmic Visions Of A Latin American Earth – Venezuelan Experimental Rock In The 1970s ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A completely amazing collection of sounds from the 70s scene in Venezuela – a really un-tapped legacy of fantastically creative music – most of it pretty darn groovy, too! Despite the "rock" in the title, the music here is more in a mix of funky jazz and other creative instrumental styles – a bit of Latin in some of the rhythms, some spiritual currents at other points, and a really rich blend of electric and acoustic instrumentation, with some other offbeat touches too! The music is almost more on the farther side of the spectrum from creative Latin combos in New York or LA at the time – not salsa, but with some salsa currents – not Chicano rock, but with some of those elements too – and maybe some of the better touches of the most experimental groups in Havana, the few who were reaching for a new style at the time. Venezuela was riding high on oil money at the time of these recordings – and there's definitely a sense of creativity for its own sake going on here – especially in some of the more electric moments, which reflect elements we really never would have expected. As always with Soul Jazz, the package is as great as the music – a mini-history lesson in itself – and titles include "Irene" by Aldemaro Romero Y Su Onda Nueva, "Dame De Comer" by Miguel Angel Fuster, "Amor En Llamas" by Pablo Schneider, "Aragueney" by Vytas Brenner, "Joropo No 1" by Grupo CIM, "Panico A Las 5am" by Angel Rada, "San Juan Tambo Y Fuera" by Un Dos Tres Y Fuera, "Ayudame A Encontrar Mi Camino" by Apocalipsis, and "Barcos De Pape" by Fernando Yvosky.

So when we came across a small stack of African records, we scooped them up and put them online, but rather than insult those of you out there who know and love this stuff, we're just listing them at a nice price without trying to describe them, and are confident you fans of the real deep African grooves will be able to know what you're looking at. This album features 6 tracks: the side-long "Fuji Garbage III" plus "E Je Ka Sere", "Olorun Oba", "Ewe Olubori", "Ore Nigun Se" and "Awa La Lede Orin". LP, Vinyl record album

Girma Beyene & Akale WubeEthiopiques Volume 30 – Mistakes On Purpose ... CD
Buda (France), 2017. New Copy ... $7.99 16.99
A fantastic contemporary performance from Girma Beyene – a key artist in the golden age of Ethiopian, working here with the excellent Akale Wube quintet! Girma's one of a number of singers who went into exile during the changing political climate of the 70s – but in recent years, he's returned to his homeland, and has really reaffirmed his role in music – coming across here with a sound that's maybe even deeper and more sophisticated than his earlier recordings, and somewhat jazzier too! The group have a nicely understated approach – classic Ethiopian jazz and funk modes, but never overdone – so that when Girma slides into the groove, he really gets the right sort of space – which allows for some especially great presentation of his amazing vocals. Yet the set's also got some great instrumental tracks, too – long numbers that really make a great showcase for the saxophone work of Etienne De La Sayette and trumpet of Paul Bouclier. Florian Pellissier guests on organ on three tracks, and Fender Rhodes on one more – and titles include "Bemelkesh Aydelem", "Ene Negn Bay Manesh", "Enken Yelelebesh", "Melewetsesh Menew", "Wub Nat", and "Meslogn Neber".

✨✧ El RegoEl Rego ... CD
Daptone/Voodoo Funk, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
Monumental Afro Soul from El Rego Et Ses Commandos – El Rego's best recordings from the late 60s to early 70s – a beautifully done compilation put together by Daptone and Frank Gossner, the deep digging West African music expert behind Voodoo Funk! Theophile Do-Rego is a legend in his native Benin, essentially credited as the godfather of Benin funk – but to date, he hasn't been celebrated around the world nearly as famously as the superstars of African music hailing from Nigeria and Ghana. That's something that can change really quickly if enough people pick up this truly great compilation of pioneering recordings. Singer El Rego and his excellent, diversely capable band – sax and flute by Baboni Oudou, sax by Michel Diogo, guitar by Oscar De Souza, trumpet by Emmanuel Ganssounou, guitar by Roger Coffi, tumba by Marcelin Kpohonon, additional vocals by Christian Agueh, and bass by band leader Paul Hounnou – take a tighter approach to funky soul. Just a couple tracks on this set roll past the 4 minute mark – which gives it a tighter soul sound, along with some Benin blues and some riveting JB-indebted vocal affections. We owe Voodoo Funk and Daptone big for putting this together! The CD comes with a great booklet featuring notes by Gossner and personal reflections by El Rego. Includes "Feeling You Got", "Zon Dede", "E Nan Mian Duku", "Dkobime", "Dis-Moi Oui", "Djobime", "Hessa" (the centerpiece of the album, 3 minutes of Afro Soul perfection. . .the whole set is great, but this track is unforgettable), "Kpon Fi La", "Do Do Baya", "Vive Le Renouveau", "Achuta", "Cholera" and "Ke Amon-Gbetchea".

El TurroneroNew Hondo ... LP
Belter/Pharaway Sounds (Spain), 1980. New Copy ... $25.99
A funky treasure from the Spanish scene at the end of the 70s – a groundbreaking combination of flamenco roots and upbeat funk and soul! The album's got a groove that grabs you right from the start – almost like some of the tighter sound library funk of the European scenet at the time, until the vocals of El Turronero come into the mix, and soar to the skies in a mode that's similar to the famous singer Camaron De La Isla! The vocals are no mere chorus along with the grooves – and instead seem to have a life of their own, especially on some of the clubbier tracks – which might bear some relation to American disco in the instrumentation, but none at all in the overall approach! The mix was a groundbreaking one that represented the new youthful energy of the Spanish scene in the 70s – and a desire to get away from more staid modes laid down by the academy and tradition, while still embracing the roots of their culture. Titles include "Las Penas", "Sufrimientos", "Y La Razon", "Mis Venas", "Tiene Bigotes", "Navegan Mis Pensamientos", and "A Nadie Se La Ha Ocurrio". (Latin, Global Grooves) LP, Vinyl record album

Ifriqiyya ElectriqueRuwahine ... CD
Glitterbeat (Germany), 2017. New Copy ... $9.99 14.99
Very dark sounds from this cross-cultural combo – a group who certainly draw from Tunisian roots at times, but who almost come across sounding more like one of the darker acts from the post-punk generation! The "electrique" in the name is well-put – as even the acoustic elements of the music are more subdued by the heavier guitars and keyboards, and the slower pace of the songs – which almost has an Afro-goth sort of vibe at times! Titles include "Laa La Illa Allah", "Mawwel", "Qaadrii Salaam Alaik Massarh", "Stombali Baba Alaia", "Sidriiya", and "Arrah Arrah Abbaina Bahari Tenouiba". CD

Juaneco Y Su ComboJuaneco Y Su Combo – Masters Of Chicha Vol 1 ... LP
Barbes, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.98
A great compilation of Peruvian Chicha combo Juaneco Y Su Combo from Barbes Records – and a great look at a really under-discovered scene! The grooves here have a skittishly romping feel in the rhythms, but also feature some great guitar and organ parts too – a great mix of electric and organic, with an appeal that's quite similar to early cumbia work from Columbia, especially some of the more electric-styled tunes. There's also a feel here that's slightly rural – almost western echoes in the guitar at times, but in ways that are quite different from any US sounds of the 60s – and although the music is more than enough on its own, the package also provides some good historical details as well. Titles include "Mujer Hilandera", "Me Robaron Mi Runamula", "El Lanto De Ayaimama", "La Patadita", Caballito Nocturno", "Recordando A Fachin", and "Dale Juaneco". 13 in all. LP, Vinyl record album

Edmony Krater Et ZepissTijan Pou Velo (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Heavenly Sweetness (France), 1988. Used ... $6.99
An unusual blend of jazz, fusion, and gwo ka rhythms from Guadelopue – served up here in a classic album from trumpeter Edmony Krater! Krater blows some beautiful solos on the record – a bit like Don Cherry in some of his more globally-oriented projects – but the overall approach is more rhythmic, and tied together by keyboards and basslines, which are then offset by rootsier percussion elements that trace back to the earlier days of the genre – while Edmony and his compatriots continue to inflect some modern touches over the top! The group's got some sweet guitar lines from Freddy Tisseur, whose playing nicely skirts both sides of this sound – and titles include "Crepuscule", "Tijan", "Gwadloup", "Chimin Spirit", and "Occitan Dance". CD features two bonus tracks – "Rime A La Vi" and "Sonje Pa Plere". CD

Commercial but never cloying – a great return to form for Los Amigos Invisibles, a group who always make us forget the barriers of language with their warmly seductive grooves! The production here is nice and warm – helped out with contributions from DJ Afro on a few tracks, and done in styles that remind us a lot of our favorite European work of the start of the decade – particularly some of the clubby sounds of Paris, from before that scene got a bit too trashed up. Titles include "Mentiras", "Plastic Woman", "In Luv With U", "Como Sabes Tu", "Dulce", "Es La Verdad", and "Oyeme Nena". (New Grooves, Global Grooves) CD

Hugh MasekelaColonial Man ... LP
Casablanca, 1976. Very Good+ ... $3.99
A later album from Hugh Masekela – but still plenty darn hip, way more so than most of the other artists on the Casablanca label at the time! Hugh's South African groove is still very firmly in place here – mixed with a slightly warmer LA soul sound, but expanded with loads of great arrangements that get a lot more complicated than before – and which bring in some great keyboard and percussion bits. Sivuca makes a wonderful appearance on 2 tracks – using that blend of voice and accordion that sounds so great – and the whole record's got a depth and sense of soul that you'd never guess from it's silly title and cover! Titles include "Colonial Man", "Song For Brazil", "Vasco Da Gama", "For The Love Of You", "Witch Doctor", and "Cecil Rhodes". LP, Vinyl record album

Paul Riser handled the string and horn arrangements, and although the album's not as "authentic" as some of Letta's other albums, the overall style is still quite compelling – and whatever the record lacks in African funk, it more than makes up for in smooth jazzy LA soul. Titles include "Mamani", "Haraje", "I Need You", and "Buza". LP, Vinyl record album

Meridian BrothersDonde Estas Maria ... LP
Soundway (UK), 2017. New Copy ... $18.99 19.98
The Meridian Brothers have been making music for quite a few years now – and with each new release, they seem to open up another fresh corner of southern hemisphere sounds, and continue to find a way to weave them together into something quite fresh and unique! Few other folks could navigate a territory this rich, and not get lost in the forest – and The Meridians manage to change rhythms strongly with each new track, utilize both ancient elements and contemporary production, and even, this time around, occasionally reach for some larger arrangements that only seem to give their music an even loftier vibe than before! Most tracks have vocals in Spanish, and instrumentation that speaks in a lot more languages – and titles include "No Me Traciones", "Donde Estas Maria", "Entra El Ritmo Antillano", "El No Esta Muerto", "Cumbia Eres La Cumbia", "Como Estoy En Los Sesenta", and "Yo Soy Tu Padre Yo Te Fabrique".
