Kou Keri KouCanto Negro/Cerbatana ... 7-inch
Electric Cowbell, 2018. New Copy ... $6.99
A Spanish group, but one who draw inspiration from all over the globe – as they criss-cross Southern Hemisphere sounds from both sides of the Atlantic on "Canto Negro" – a tune that's got a nice sing/songy groove!

Edmony KraterAn Ka Sonje ... LP
Heavenly Sweetness (France), 2018. New Copy ... $22.99
The first album in many years from Edmondy Krater – an overlooked musical genius from the scene in Guadeloupe – and one who maybe sounds better here than ever before!

KumasiAkoben ... LP
Superjock, 2018. New Copy ... $18.99 19.99
A neo-classic Afrobeat combo based in New Orleans and named for the city in Ghana – and they're a pretty great one, too!

Kodjovi Kush & Afrospot All StarsLove In Africa ... CD
Chop Time (Netherlands), 2017. New Copy ... $15.99
A contemporary Afro Funk record, but one with a vibe that makes us feel like we've discovered some lost strand of sound from the 70s! The Afrospot All Stars are wonderfully jazzy – a group who swing their horns more than blast them at times, warmed up by some great Fender Rhodes and very ... read more CD

Femi KutiOne People One World ... CD
Knitting Factory, 2018. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
The title of the first track here really gets the spirit of the album right – "Africa Will Be Great Again" – which stands at the start as one of the most declarative moments on record from Femi Kuti, and really sets the tone for the rest of the record! There's definitely some ... read more CD

Strut (UK), 2018. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $26.99 28.99
Some of the most righteous and furiously funky Afro Soul since Fela Kuti's prime – and it's beyond appropriate for such a committed, perfect personification of a classic sound via a modern player come from Fela's own son Seun! As strident as Seun's approach is, much like his father at his ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Afro 7 (Finland), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $11.99
Two rare slices of Nairobi funk – back to back on a great 45! "Gkinumanze" is a fast-moving number with horns riffing over the top of a bass-wrapped rhythm – one that's complex, but completely infectious – topped by lyrics at the start, then this very unusual guitar (?) ...

Pasteur LappeNa Man Pass Man ... LP
Disques D'Esperance/Africa Seven (UK), Early 80s. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
An Afro Funk record, but one with a bit of an unusual groove, too – as the set was recorded in France, and features some unusual moogy touches next to the percussion, horns, and guitars! Pasteur Lappe's definitely going for more of a global funk vibe overall here – and, a bit like Ice ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Pasteur LappeWe The People (with bonus download) ... LP
Africa Seven (UK), Early 80s. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
Tight Afro club grooves from Pasteur Lappe – but tracks that also have some nice roughness around the edges! The style here is often somewhat stripped-down – with rhythms that feature straight-ahead basslines and drums, which are then criss-crossed by Lappe's vocals, and peppered with ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

LaraajiBring On The Sun ... LP
All Saints, 2017. New Copy 2LP ... $22.99 23.99
A record that features Laraaji working through a set of beautiful instrumental soundscapes – music that takes familiar acoustic and electric elements, and really abstracts them in ways that go far beyond their original use – but all without any sense of overused production techniques! ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

LaraajiCelestial Vibrations ... CD
SWN/Soul Jazz (UK), 1978. New Copy ... $16.99 22.99
A beautifully trippy set of tracks from Edward Larry Gordon – an artist who's probably better known for his later Laraaji album recorded with Brian Eno, but one who sounds even better here on this debut set! The sound is very spiritual and meditative – long, drawn-out, side-long tracks ... read more CD
