Tinariwen march out of the wilderness, and into a setting that allows for a lot of key collaborative talent – a lineup of guests that includes Warren Ellis, Cass McCombs, Stephen O'Malley, and others!

The final recording made by Ali Farka Toure and Toumani Diabate – and every bit as great as the pair's previous well-known work! As before, the main charm of the album comes from the instrumental interplay – the dance between the strings of Diabate's kora and Toure's guitar – and ... read more CD

Three sitar pieces from Pandit Kanwar Sain Trikha – all recorded in London at the staret of the 70s, and with a vibe that's every bit as trippy as the cover!

An excellent Afro Funk groover – loose and free, with heavy beats, riffing guitar, and echoey spaced out lyrics and production!

One of the most hard-grooving set we've heard from singer Mary Afi Usuah – a set that has all these deep, bassy currents on the bottom – which hold a nice groove underneath Mary's heavenly voice! Usuah has a range that's much greater than some of her contemporaries – no surprise, ... read more CD

A killer album of Afro Funk from the Nigerian scene at the start of the 80s – but a set that feels much more like some of the longer-form experiments in Lagos during the decade before!
