Chimurenga (Zimbabwe), 1976. Near Mint- ... $59.99
Incredible early work from Zimbabwean giant Thomas Mapfumo & The Acid Band – incredible, revolutionary stuff in both a musical and in the sense of his songs of Chimurenga, or struggle, which got him in a heap of political trouble during the Rhodesean War while inspiring generations of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Hugh MasekelaAll-Time Hits Of Hugh Masekela ... LP
MGM, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $4.99
The title's a bit misleading, since the record really doesn't include Hugh's biggest hits – but it is a darn groovy batch of tight little numbers, all infused with Hugh's South African Soul riffing, and plenty of funky trumpet! Includes nice remakes of "Mas Que Nada" and "Cante ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Casablanca, 1976. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Hats off to Hugh Masekela – one of the few artists who could record for the Casablanca label and never manage to lose his own sense of sound and spirit!

Retro Afric (UK), 1950s. New Copy 4 CDs ... $28.99
An incredible collection of work from the legendary ET Mensah – one of the strongest early proponents of highlife on the African scene of the postwar years, and one of the jazziest too!

Awesome Tapes From Africa, Mid 80s. New Copy 2LP ... $18.99 23.99
An incredible blend of sounds and styles – and one of the most enigmatic albums we've ever heard from the Ethiopian scene!

An amazing organ player from the Ethiopian scene – one whose work here easily rivals that of Mulatu and some of the best artists on the Ethiopiques series!

MombasaAfrican Rhythms & Blues ... LP
Spiegelei/Sonorama (Germany), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99
A sublime blend of spiritual jazz and African rhythms – and one of the few 70s recordings made by Mombasa, a European group put together by LA trombonist Lou Blackburn! The record's got a much more righteous sound than any of Blackburn's work of the 60s – a boldness and sense of pride ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Spiegelei/Sonorama (Germany), 1976. New Copy ... $18.99
The second album from Mombasa – and possibly even better than the first! The group have really come into their own by the time of this date – mixing together jazz and African roots with a sound that's unlike anyone else we can think of – quite unique in its approach to rhythms, ... read more CD

Secret Stash, 1977. New Copy ... $11.99 16.99
The first album as a solo act from Harry Mosco – better known for his previous music with The Funkees – one of the best Afro Funk combos of the early 70s! The style here is a nice expansion of that previous group's work – very heavily rooted in the right sort of basslines to kick ... read more CD

MuktaDancing On One's Hands ... CD
WEA (France), 2000. Used ... $4.99
Fantastic Indian funk from one of our favorite new groups! In contrast to the band's jazzy second album Jade, issued right before this one, Dancing On One's Hands is more of a 70s funk outing – with hard grooves that recall the best moment of funky Bollywood soundtracks from the 70s, plus a ... read more CD

MulatuAfro Latin Soul ... LP
Worthy, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Pure insanity from the mighty Mulatu – one of his few American albums from the 60s! The record's an incredible blend of New York Latin and some of the more Afro-styled grooves Mulatu explored more freely on his Ethiopian recordings – served up in a jazzy style that has plenty of vibes ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

MulatuSketches Of Ethiopia ... CD
Jazz Village (France), 2013. New Copy ... $14.99
