Heady work from the Ngozi Family – a Zambian rock band that was the first to be dubbed as "Zamrock" – a cool fusion of older African rhythms and 70s rockish modes – never too polished, but with a tightness that might have made Anglo groups up in London sit up and take ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Sea LionsFree The People ... CD
Jet (Austria), 1978. New Copy ... $7.99 16.99
An unusual album from the West African scene of the 70s – a set that brings together that area's styles with touches of reggae and maybe a slight current of soul – all of which makes for a very distinct approach to rhythm, which is also echoed in the vocals and instrumentation! There's ... read more CD

Stereophonk (France), 2021. New Copy ... $29.99 34.99
The Selenites are just a quintet, but they manage to come across with the richness of a larger funky ensemble – effortlessly mixing together elements of Ethio Jazz, deep funk, and some occasional wild production touches – all with a groove that's pretty much all their own!

Shabaka & The AncestorsWisdom Of Elders ... CD
Brownswood (UK), 2016. Used ... $9.99 11.99
A fantastic jazz group from the contemporary South African scene – one who've got a very righteous vibe, and a sound that's maybe even more far-reaching than any jazz we've heard from that scene back in the 60s or 70s! The group's led by Shabaka Hutchings on tenor, but is a very ... (Jazz, Global Grooves) read more CD

Ananda ShankarMissing You (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Fallout (UK), Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $22.99
A different sound than usual for Ananda Shankar – but still pretty darn great! The record's dedicated to his father, dance expert Uday Shankar – and it's got a sound that's sparer and more soundtrack-like than some of Ananda's more famous funk work of earlier years. The overall ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Ravi ShankarThree Ragas (World Pacific) ... LP
World Pacific, Mid 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $7.99

ShankarSong For Everyone ... LP
ECM, 1985. Near Mint- ... $8.99
Shankar was one of the few flying the flag of jazz/Indian music crossovers in the 80s – pushing the genre a bit farther forward at a time when most other players had abandoned it! Given that his instrumentation here is violin and drum machine, the sound's a bit different than some of the ... (Jazz, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album

That's not a typo in the title – although the music of Majid Soula is pretty darn amazing – served up here in a collection of work from the 80s, all of which serves to find a new sort of contemporary expression for the Amazigh culture of North Africa!
