An amazing rare chapter in the career of the legendary Manu Dibango – and a darn funky one as well!

Joni HaastrupWake Up Your Mind ... LP
Afrodisia (Nigeria), 1978. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
Funky funky solo work from Joni Haastrup – an artist who's also known for his work in Monomono, and who sounds equally great on his own! Joni's got this tight approach that wraps together Nigerian grooves of the 70s scene, and some bolder soul star energy that would be right at home in the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A vital compilation of 70s material by Zimbabwe's Hallelujah Chicken Run Band!

PMG (Austria), 1975. Used ... $7.99
Great work from this cool Nigerian funk combo of the 70s – a group who bore strong ties to the equally-great Akwassa, and who work here with an equally righteous groove! Lyrics are mostly in English, and have some political currents that give the music a social sort of edge – but the ... read more CD

Heerlens Percussie EnsembleBiologic Music ... LP
Hot Mule (France), 1986. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
A really unusual little album – one that partly embraces a globe's worth of acoustic percussion, partly expresses itself in the minimal percussion legacy after Steve Reich's Drumming, and partly embraces some of the electric/acoustic sounds of the New York downtown scene of the early 80s ...

The debut album from Theadora Ifudu – a singer who hit greater fame on a bigger label a few years later – but who sounds pretty darn great here at the start! The music is an offbeat blend of American soul and Nigerian funk – recorded both in Lagos and London, but with a sound ... read more CD

An album that's every bit as cool as you might expect – a set that's very much in the same Indo-jazz experiments as saxophonist Joe Harriott, but with a slightly different approach overall!
