✨✧ VariousDuomo Sounds Ltd – Nigerian 80s Disco Music To Move Your Soul ... LP
Odion Livingstone (UK), Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $29.99
Sweet grooves from the Duomo Sounds label – a short-lived Nigerian imprint who cut some mighty funky sounds at the start of the 80s!

Cedarphon (Lebanon), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Wild grooves from two different Mid-East scenes – both of which seemed very open too mixing cool electronics with dancefloor rhythms!

A motherlode of classic chicha tunes, right from the source – all pulled from one of the most important Peruvian labels in the genre!
