Hailu Mergia & Dahlak BandWede Harer Guzo ... CD
Awesome Tapes From Africa, 1978. New Copy Gatefold ... $11.99 14.98
Maybe the coolest music we've ever heard from Ethiopian keyboard legend Hailu Mergia – a late 70s session that has his organ lines sounding even groovier than ever, on some sweet tracks that also bring in a fair bit of funk to the grooves! The style is much more in an Ethiopiques vein than ... read more CD

Meridian BrothersDonde Estas Maria ... CD
Soundway (UK), 2017. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
The Meridian Brothers have been making music for quite a few years now – and with each new release, they seem to open up another fresh corner of southern hemisphere sounds, and continue to find a way to weave them together into something quite fresh and unique! Few other folks could navigate ... read more CD

Mighty SparrowHot & Sweet ... LP
Warner, 1974. Near Mint- ... $11.99
A bit late to be classic calypso, but a really stunning example of the style – recorded by Mighty Sparrow for Warner with some very hip production by Van Dyke Parks! The record's not only one of the best-produced that Sparrow also cut, it's also a great illustration of the different styles ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Minyo CrusadersEchoes Of Japan (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), 2018. New Copy ... $26.99
One of the most unique funk groups we've ever heard – one who bring together Japanese roots, and inflect them with a much more global sense of groove! The approach is maybe Lagos by way of Kyoto – with maybe a stop in Addis Ababa during the trip – but the end result is also a lot ... (Deep Funk, Global Grooves) read more CD

Mdou MoctarSousoume Tamachek ... LP
Mississippi/Sahel Sounds, 2017. New Copy ... $16.99
Beautifully trippy work from Mdou Moctar – an artist who's one of our favorite guitarists on the Touareg scene – and maybe one of the most experimental too! The songs here all have a long, stretched-out vibe – almost like some of the 60s guitar ragas of Peter Walker, or the sonic ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Morena Y ClaraNo Llores Mas ... CD
Pharaway Sounds (Spain), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $16.99
Funky gipsy grooves from 70s Spain – served up by a pair of sweet female singers, and plenty of fuzz guitar as well! The duo have a sound that's almost more sinister than you'd expect – singing together with this buzzing edge, and set to rhythms that are often pretty funky – in ...

Gallo/Soundway (UK), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $20.99 21.98
A stone classic from one of the hippest groups on the South African scene of the 70s – and one of the few who could compete well with American soul groups of the same time! The cover makes the album look like some overlooked New York club treasure from the period – and the feel of the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Worthy/Strut (UK), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99 14.99
Amazing work from the legendary Mulatu Astatke – one of Ethiopia's funkiest musicians of the 70s, making a rare appearance here on this lost American recording! The album has been a holy grail for years amongst beatheads – loved for its killer blend of weird rhythms, sweet funk, and ... read more CD

Mulatu AstatkeMulatu Steps Ahead ... CD
Strut (UK), 2010. New Copy ... $11.99 14.99
Steps Ahead is just about the least we could say about Ethio jazz funk genius Mulatu Astatke – he not only remains on a creative high point after so many years, he takes a couple more giant strides on Mulatu Steps Ahead for Strut Records! To put it simply, the music Mulatu makes here more ... read more CD

Sagittarius (Italy), 1990. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A stunning collaboration between Muruga Booker and Big Black– both percussionists who lead the session, but who also work here with lots of additional instrumentation that includes ocarina, violin, hammered dulcimer, and even some clarinet from avant jazz legend Perry Robinson!

Voodoo Funk (UK), 1973. Used ... $6.99
Afro Funk, but with a nice undercurrent of fuzz too – lots of nice flares around the guitars and keyboard bits, but always in way that keeps the funky rhythms right on track! Nath & Martin Brothers were the backing group on the famous Pax Nicholas album – but they work here on ... read more CD

Tal, 2016. Sealed ... $4.99
An album that features vocal performances from Ogoya Nengo and her group – but one that also expands the groove a bit with some great added percussion at times – which really expands the energy of the record past the all-acapella passages! The vocals here are a lot more earthy and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
