✨✧ AfriqueSoul Makossa ... LP
Mainstream, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A killer album of Afro Funk – with a very unusual origin! In the wake of Manu Dibango's big hit (and some kind of failure to register the copyright), many many versions of "Soul Makossa" were recorded and released, some good, some bad. This album is a good example of that ... (Soul, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ AmanazAfrica ... LP
Now Again, 1975. Near Mint- 2LP (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
Wonderfully fuzzy work from Amanaz – one of the trippiest, headiest groups of the Zamrock scene of the 70s! The guitars here are very full and present – not at a hit you over the head jamming label, but with this rich sonic element that has lots of bassy undercurrents – at a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ AntibalasAntibalas (with bonus download) ... LP
Daptone, 2012. New Copy ... $15.99 19.99
Amazing sounds from one of the best funky combos anywhere – ever! Antibalas have certainly risen to fame in the years since we first heard their Afro-styled grooves – working famously in the Fela musical, and reaching generations of ears with their own brilliant records. Yet ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Daptone, 2016. New Copy ... $19.99
One of the greatest contemporary torch carrying combos for classic-schooled Afro Funk – the mighty Antibalas, who are at this point approaching contemporary legends status in their own right – doing their thing in the Bushwick backyard of Daptone Records' House Of Soul! There's a raw, ... (DVDs & Videos, Global Grooves) read more DVD

✨✧ Ali BirraAmmalele ... LP
Mississippi/Little Axe/Domino Sound, 1976. Near Mint- ... $9.99
One of the rarer Ethiopian recordings we've heard from the 70s – and one of the most compelling, too! The sounds here are just as haunting as more familiar Ethiopian music, but also have a nicely unbridled feel too – almost a bit rough at times, especially in the way the rhythms unfurl ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Rodrigo CamposConversas Com Toshiro (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Goma Gringa (Brazil), 2016. New Copy 2 LPs ... $56.99
A completely beautiful set from contemporary Brazil – and a record that, like some of our favorite classics from that scene, has a mindblowing vibe and a sound that's completely beyond any sort of easy description! Rodrigo Campos has a way of weaving acoustic and electric elements together ... (Brazil, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ ChainoAfricana & Beyond! ... CD
Dionysus/Bacchus Archives, Early 60s. Used ... $8.99
One of the greatest albums by this enigmatic percussionist – a mix of hard and spare drum-driven tunes, plus a few more that add in some groovy 60s instrumentation, especially on electric guitar! The album's very well recorded and produced – and titles include "Jungle Mood", ... read more CD

✨✧ CrystalMusic Life ... LP
Favorite (France), Early 80s. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
Cool Caribbean soul from back in the day – a set that owes plenty to American modern and AOR styles of the time, but which also has its own sort of special vibe as well! The production is tight, but never too slick – and the tunes have this extended, open flow that makes for some ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Manu DibangoSun Explosion ... CD
Fiesta/Africa Seven (UK), 1978. New Copy ... $11.99
A record that really shows the continuing evolution of the sound of Manu Dibango – the artist's relentless drive to move forward and keep coming up with new ways to groove! The style here is quite different than the short, stark vibe of Manu's earlier work – as the tracks are all long, ... read more CD

✨✧ IlaiyaraajaIlectro – Euphoric Electronics & Robotic Funk ... CD
Finders Keepers/B- Music, Mid 80s. Used ... $9.99
Great electronics from the Indian scene of the 80s – music that's a lot warmer and more evocative than you might guess from the "robotic" in the title – thanks to plenty of roots in the Kollywood soundtrack scene! The instrumentation is often spare, but still echoes the ... read more CD

✨✧ Los Issifu & His MoslemsKana Soro/Idarga Bidi ... 7-inch
Academy, Mid 70s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $7.99
Totally massive – and one of the most hard-breaking Afro Funk tunes we've ever heard! "Kana Soro" has these killer drums at the start – really hitting hard with a wicked crackle right away – then rolls into an organ line that almost feels like "The Message" by ...

✨✧ Hugh MasekelaHugh Masekela's Latest ... LP
Uni/Chisa, Late 60s. Very Good ... $6.99
Nice hard funky Afro soul from Hugh – cut during the time when he was really perfecting his sweet little blend of African rhythms and LA soul! The tracks are all short and hard – with funky trumpet in the lead, and some tight hard-grooving rhythms in the back. Most of this stuff feels ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
