Sonic Octopus/Esso! Afrojam Funkbeat, 2017. New Copy ... $6.99 9.99
A mix of timeless and modern Afro Latin grooves from Chicago's excellent Esso! Afrojam Funkbeat! Stylistically, the sky is the limit with this Esso!, with arrangements that roll from a broad palette of Latin jazz & soul instrumentation to more of a modern dancefloor vibe, and from instrumental ... read more CD

CymandeSimple Act Of Faith ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), 2015. New Copy ... $4.99 13.99
The first album in many years from Cymande – that ultra-cool British group who gave us a run of great funk records in the 70s! The style here is surprisingly faithful to the original Cymande sound – especially the basslines, which have this head-nodding, slow-grooving style that's ... (Soul, Global Grooves) read more CD

BloChapters & Phases – The Complete Albums 1973 to 1975 (Chapter One/Phase II) ... CD
Rev-Ola (UK), 1973/1975. New Copy ... $6.99 14.99
One of the hippest groups of the Nigerian scene of the 70s – presented here in two classic albums, back to back on a single CD! Chapter One is a landmark set of African grooves – very unusual in both conception and execution – with a feel that's unlike anything we can think of! ... read more CD

Morena Y ClaraNo Llores Mas ... CD
Pharaway Sounds (Spain), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $7.99
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 ...

Woima CollectiveFrou Frou Rokko ... CD
Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 2014. New Copy ... $7.99
Nothing frou frou about this heavy little set – as the record's a rock solid batch of African rhythms, served up with a distinctively Ethiopian feel – at a level that's even groovier than the group's first album! The collective clearly take some key inspiration from the more ... read more CD

Woima CollectiveTezeta ... CD
Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 2010. New Copy ... $7.99
An amazing set of Ethiopian-styled grooves – recorded recently, but with a sound that's right up there with some of our favorite Mulatu albums of the 70s! The group here really know their stuff – and they work in a beautiful blend of bottom-heavy percussion and unique horn phrasings ... read more CD

VariousZanzibara 5 – Hot In Dar – Le Son De La Tanzanie 1978 to 1983 ... CD
Buda (France), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $7.99 15.99
One of our favorite entries so far in the Zanzibara series – a great set of grooves from the late 70s and early 80s – warmly laidback material, with a bubbling undercurrent of funk, and a sound that's somewhat different from other African material we've heard from the time! The rhythms ... read more CD

VariousEthiopiques Volume 16 – Asnaqetch Werqu: Lady With The Kyar ... CD
Buda (France), 1974/1976. New Copy ... $8.99 16.99
Tremendously enigmatic work from Ethiopian singer/musician Asnaqetch Wergu – 70s recordings that feature mostly her thin, reed-like vocals, with instrumental backing by the "krar" – a lute-like instrument of triangular shape, featuring tightly-drawn strings that are plucked in ... read more CD

LulendoMwinda ... CD
Buda (France), 2017. New Copy ... $8.99 16.99
Beautifully bubbling sounds from Lulendo – a singer who also plays a fair bit of quissange – an African thumb piano, in the same manner as the kalimba! The instrument rings out with these percussive notes right alongside his lively, lyrical vocals – set to instrumentation that is ... read more CD

VariousZanzibara 4 – Bi Kidude (La Memoire De La Musique Zanzibaraise) ... CD
Buda (France), 2006. New Copy ... $7.99 15.99
Mostly recent recordings by Bi Kidude – billed here as "the diva of Zanzibari music", and supported by a great set of material that certainly helps her live up to this title! Kidude sings in a haunting, almost ancient kind of way – very thin-voiced, but powerful – often ... read more CD

Ennanga VisionEnnanga Vision ... CD
Soundway (UK), 2017. New Copy ... $7.99 12.98
One of those records that definitely lives up to its cover – as it's not only a great mish-mash of styles, it's also got some 80s instrumental currents that might come as a surprise if you know other records on the Soundway label! The work recasts older elements of Ugandan music with old ... read more CD

King Ayisoba1000 Can Die ... CD
Glitterbeat (Germany), 2017. New Copy ... $8.99 14.99
New work from this legendary Ghanian singer – an artist who also plays the guitar-like kologo, but in the company of a fierce amount of percussion! The album's got an approach that really comes on strong – mixing older modes with a slightly contemporary crackle – a bit like the ... read more CD
