A legendary East African band – finally given their due on the international scene! The set's got all the sharp edges and rich charms of older work by Orchestre Les Mangelepa – but there's also a focused clarity, and maybe even a maturity of presentation that's really nice too – ... read more CD

Warner, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $11.99
This UK Afro Funk group is slicking things up a bit for this 1973 album – but not in a bad way, because it actually kicks up the groove considerably.

Warm 70s soul from Pacific Express – a South African group, but one who maybe have more of a west coast American vibe than you might expect!

Cree (Germany), 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $26.99 29.99
A jazzy combo from the Caribbean – led by a singer who also plays some really wonderful vibes! The rhythms are strong, with a definite dose of calypso in the mix – but the overall sound is much more in the jazz side of the spectrum, thanks to fluidly melodic sounds from Andre Tanker on ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Third Man, 2018. New Copy (pic cover)... $1.99
A stylistic boundary pushing couple of tracks by Tanzania Albinism Collective – raw percussion, chanted vocal driven East African folk music unlike any we've heard before, and all the more compelling for it! The group is an ad hoc combo of singers and players from Ukerewe's Standing Voice ... (Funky 45's, Global Grooves) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Two rare African funk grooves – each offered up in their original versions, and a mighty cool remix too!

Great sounds from Henri Texier – a jazz musician who's always way more than just a jazz musician – especially on his 70s records, which have a really freewheeling way of mixing things together!

Diskotur/World Psychedelia, 1972. New Copy ... $4.99
The first album by trippy Turkish trio 3 Hur El – a great blend of Eastern sounds and western styles – all coming together with a slightly progressive feel!

Diskotur/World Psychedelia, Early 70s. New Copy ... $4.99
Trippy rock from the three Hurel brothers of Turkey – a fuzzed-up, freaked-out trio that comes off with some great psychedelic touches!

An Indonesian funk group, but one who've got a style that's like the best Cali groups of the late 70s – all the way through to the AOR-oriented aspirations in their sound!

A really unusual collective from the London scene – a group who play jazz of a global variety, but with a style that's much more far-reaching than standard Latin or Afro-inflected jazz! Instead, these guys seem open to a few continents' wealth of rhythms – but also use them in a way ... (Jazz, Global Grooves) read more CD

Not just a fantastic album from Ethiopia's legendary Asnakech Worku, but also a great setting for Hailu Mergia too – as he plays organ on the record, and produced the whole thing too!
