Manu DibangoAfrican Woodoo ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), Early 70s. New Copy ... $9.99 18.99
Some of the coolest work we've ever heard from the legendary Manu Dibango – sound library recordings done right around the same time as his "Soul Makossa" hit, and with an equally funky groove! The music often has Manu's sax in the lead, alongside larger orchestrations that have a ... read more CD

Celluloid/Tidal Waves, 1985. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99 28.99
A really sweet combination of talents – as the legendary Afro Funk saxophonist Manu Dibango steps into the 80s – working with some of the electro jazz talents who were transforming the music at the time, in a mode that certainly warrants the title of the album! Bill Laswell produced, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Doctor NativoBugiganga Tropical Vol 2 – Guatemaya/Sabrosura ... 7-inch
Tropical Diaspora (Germany), 2018. New Copy (pic cover)... $11.99
An interesting little single – one that definitely lives up to the Tropical Diaspora label's name – given all the many elements moving together in the grooves! "Guatemaya" was recorded in Belize, but has this slow-stepping groove that's almost mellow cumbia – but ... (Funky 45's, Global Grooves) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Hot Casa (France), Late 70s. New Copy ... $28.99
Four funky killers from the Ivory Coast – tunes that are heavy on basslines, and have lots of cool changes too! "Beant" has this bass part that's complicated, but completely infectious too – mixed with offbeat vocals and saxophone in a way that almost feels as if it's in the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Muller, Early 70s. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Hard to peg this group from Chicago – but the album's got some pretty unusual rhythms! The combo looks to be a funky one – but they play with distinct Caribbean and African influences in the bass and drum parts, and especially in the guitar, which jangles back and forth across the ...

Afrodisia (Nigeria), Early 80s. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
An Afro Funk set with a very special vibe – a bit different than some of the other work of the time, and a standout performance from singer/instrumentalist Vicky Edimo! Vicky's a he, in case you didn't know (we didn't) – and his touch on percussion and keyboards is nicely moody in all ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Funky disco music, and a lot more too – all served up in this rare 70s set by Eko Roosevelt from Cameroon! The leadoff track is a long groover that runs for more than 10 minutes in length – and has that mix of modes that you'd often find in some of the Parisian Afro tracks recorded in ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

"El Doctor" is a lively little number with a nice hint of revolution – performed here by a combo from Italy, but with a very South American vibe! The percussion is upbeat, the horns punch along with the groove, and the rolling lyrics are nice and compelling – and the flipside ... (Funky 45's, Global Grooves) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

One of those records that definitely lives up to its cover – as it's not only a great mish-mash of styles, it's also got some 80s instrumental currents that might come as a surprise if you know other records on the Soundway label! The work recasts older elements of Ugandan music with old ... read more CD
