Tabansi/BBE (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $14.99 19.99

Tabansi/BBE (UK), Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the most rootsy albums ever issued by the Tabansi label – a set that's quite different than their more familiar electric modes, and which features very raw, tribal sounds by a percussion group that is tied to the Niri Kingdom in Nigeria! As you'd guess from their name, the ensemble is ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Tabansi/BBE (UK), Early 80s. New Copy ... $14.99 18.99
A nice mix of older highlife modes with some of the more electric touches of the 80s – still produced with a nice lean vibe overall, and plenty of live energy that leaps between the riffing guitar, percussion, and horns – all augmented by these nicely quirky lines on keyboards! The ... read more CD

PMG/Tabansi (Austria), 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
The Stormers are a group who rose from the ashes of the legendary Lagos funk combo Aktion – and they step out here with a really storming sound that definitely earns them their name!

Tabansi/BBE (UK), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99 26.98
Catchy, clubby grooves from the team of Zack Roberts and Gebah Swary – a Liberian duo who issued this very catchy record at the start of the 80s! The pair have an 80s look on the cover, and definitely bring that into their music too – with early electro touches used in very spare ways, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Tabansi/BBE (UK), 1979. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Beautifully gliding sounds from Lumingu "Zorro" Puati – a guitarist who glides along here on rhythms inspired by the Caribbean side of the Colombian music spectrum – but who gives the record a definite West African twist! All the album's four tracks are nice and long, and ... read more CD
