Nanga Boko (France), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
The first album recorded by singer Nkotti Francois and his Black Styls group – a combo who'd been backing Nkotti for years in clubs in Cameroon, and who work here with a very sharp sound right from the start!

PMG (Austria), 1975. New Copy ... $8.99 16.99
The fantastic first album from The Funkees – a Nigerian group, but one who also spent a good deal of time on the London scene – and who work here in a freaky, fuzzy, funky style that we might put somewhere in the same space as music by Demon Fuzz or Cymande!

Frederic GallianoFrederic Galliano Presents Kuduro Sound System ... CD
Frikyiwa (France), 2006. Used ... $4.99
One of the more urban-oriented albums we've heard from Frederic Galliano – a set that's heavy on hip hop, dancehall, and bass-heavy elements – and one that almost offers up an African equivalent of Brazilian baile funk! The album gives strong focus to the work of the Kuduro Sound ... read more CD

Meta, 2019. New Copy 2 CDs ... $13.99
A beautiful little project, and one that's better even than you'd guess from the outset – as the work is put together by percussionist Adam Randolph, and may well be one of the best things he's ever given us!
