MatataFeelin' Funky ... CD
President (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $9.99 14.99
Hard funky soul with an Afrobeat backbone from Matata – who arrived on the London scene (via Kenya) in the mid 70s! Matata leaned mightily on the JBs for their groove, and laid out a heavy, rock solid variation on JBs funk with an African percussion base of congas and bongos at the core! ... read more CD

President/RPM (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99
Some of the heaviest funk recorded on the UK scene in the early 70s – courtesy of a Kenyan group who were making their home in London at the time – and cooking up music that was a fantastic blend of soulful modes from both their homeland, and the world of American funk and soul! These ... read more CD

✨✧ Hany MehannaMiracles Of The Seven Dances (with bonus download) ... LP
Radio Martiko (Belgium), 1975. New Copy ... $28.99
Hany Mehanna looks like a mighty cool cat standing in front of his Farfisa on the cover of this mid 70s set – and he sounds pretty darn cool on the grooves, too – in an unusual mix of Egyptian instrumentation and more electric modes! The music features lots of older percussion and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Hailu MergiaHailu Mergia & His Classical Instrument – Shemonmanaye ... CD
Awesome Tapes From Africa, Mid 80s. Used ... $8.99
An incredible blend of sounds and styles – and one of the most enigmatic albums we've ever heard from the Ethiopian scene! Hailu Mergia plays alone here – but uses lots of overdubbing to layer together Fender Rhodes, accordion solos, and a rhythm machine – all mixed up in ways ... read more CD

Hailu Mergia & Dahlak BandWede Harer Guzo ... CD
Awesome Tapes From Africa, 1978. New Copy Gatefold ... $11.99 14.98
Maybe the coolest music we've ever heard from Ethiopian keyboard legend Hailu Mergia – a late 70s session that has his organ lines sounding even groovier than ever, on some sweet tracks that also bring in a fair bit of funk to the grooves! The style is much more in an Ethiopiques vein than ... read more CD

Meridian BrothersDonde Estas Maria ... CD
Soundway (UK), 2017. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
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 ... read more CD

Mighty SparrowHot & Sweet ... LP
Warner, 1974. Near Mint- ... $11.99
A bit late to be classic calypso, but a really stunning example of the style – recorded by Mighty Sparrow for Warner with some very hip production by Van Dyke Parks! The record's not only one of the best-produced that Sparrow also cut, it's also a great illustration of the different styles ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Minyo CrusadersEchoes Of Japan (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), 2018. New Copy ... $26.99
One of the most unique funk groups we've ever heard – one who bring together Japanese roots, and inflect them with a much more global sense of groove! The approach is maybe Lagos by way of Kyoto – with maybe a stop in Addis Ababa during the trip – but the end result is also a lot ... (Deep Funk, Global Grooves) read more CD

Mdou MoctarSousoume Tamachek ... LP
Mississippi/Sahel Sounds, 2017. New Copy ... $16.99
Beautifully trippy work from Mdou Moctar – an artist who's one of our favorite guitarists on the Touareg scene – and maybe one of the most experimental too! The songs here all have a long, stretched-out vibe – almost like some of the 60s guitar ragas of Peter Walker, or the sonic ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Pharaway Sounds (Spain), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $16.99
Funky gipsy grooves from 70s Spain – served up by a pair of sweet female singers, and plenty of fuzz guitar as well! The duo have a sound that's almost more sinister than you'd expect – singing together with this buzzing edge, and set to rhythms that are often pretty funky – in ...

Gallo/Soundway (UK), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $20.99 21.98
A stone classic from one of the hippest groups on the South African scene of the 70s – and one of the few who could compete well with American soul groups of the same time! The cover makes the album look like some overlooked New York club treasure from the period – and the feel of the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
