✨✧ Salum Abdallah & Cuban Marimba BandNgoma Tanzania ... LP
Domino Sound, Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Beautiful sounds from the short-lived musical legacy of Salum Abdallah and his Cuban Marimba Band – a group from Tanzania, but one who play with lots of influence from Latin Music – as you might guess from their name! And yet, unlike some of the larger, fuller Latin-influenced groups that were springing up on the West African scene of the 60s, this combo has a sound that's pretty stripped-down – often just heavy percussion and work on guitar – which appears to be a unique hybrid of the Cuban style of the instrument, which gets plucked and inflected in great ways next to the vocals! The well-done set might be the best we've seen so far from the Domino Sound label – and features tracks that include "Njoo Haraka", "Naumiya", "Cuba Cha Cha", "Kutenda Maovu", "Ngoma Iko Huku", "Macho Laini", "Masikitiko", and "Asiye Bahati Duniani". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousWedding Songs – The Progression Of An Ethiopian Amhara Wedding ... LP
Philips/Domino Sound, 1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Rare Ethiopian material from the early 70s – ostensibly a set of wedding-related tracks, but with grooves that are every bit as great as classics in the Ethiopiques series! The songs are traditional, but given some great golden age arrangements by Getachew Degefu – who swings most of them with romping rhythms that are perfect for the sing-song vocals of Lemma Gebgre Hiwot, Selamawit Gebre Selassie, and Zenebech Tesfaye – most of whom are backed by joyous singers who really send the message home! Titles include "Hay Loga", "Wondemiye", "Yihe New Wey Mizesh", "Indiyaw Yemiru", "Musherit Lemdallech", and "Yebete Zemedu". LP, Vinyl record album
