Insolito UniVersoLa Candela del Rio ... CD
Olindo (UK), 2019. New Copy ... $7.99
A Venezuelan group, one who are living in Paris – and work here with a criss-crossing of styles that really reflect that global journey! The music definitely has echoes of older Venezuelan styles, but maybe served up in a more impressionistic version – with a dream-like quality at times, as the instruments come together airily, often getting a nicely moody vibe in the production – which was partly done by Malcolm Catto, who also mixed the record. There's a really lovely female singer in the mix – with a lightness that's almost more like a bossa vocalist at times – and the instrumentation is both electric and acoustic, but often delivered at a level that make it hard to figure out where one begins and one ends. Titles include "Lloviendo En Guatire", "Yo Soy Mi Rio", "Tonada Del Guante", "Transmutada", "Vuelve", "Pajaro", and "Machurucuto". CD

Awesome Tapes From Africa, 1986. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A record that offers up a real criss-crossing of sounds and styles – the spare ahoko instrument pictured on the cover, and a host of excellent 80s electro soul elements at the core! The record mixes boogie beat and sweet keyboards with the lovely lead vocals of Antoinette Konan, and her percussion work on ahoko – in a mode that's one of the best hybrids that we've heard from the West African scene of the time – a sound that's tuneful, but never too commercial – electric, but never too clunky. Titles include "Abidjan Adja", "Evignen", "Yale", "Kokoloko Tani", and "M'Acko". LP, Vinyl record album
