✨✧ Afrosound/Wganda KenyaFiebre En La Jungla/Tipit Hayed ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1975/1985. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Loads of funky drums on "Fiebre En La Jungla" – a cut that's a remake of "Jungle Fever" by Chakachas, but done with a groove that's faster and more frenetic – even the sensual moanings by the female vocalist on the track! "Tipit Hayed" has this core rootsy ... (Funky 45's) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Mr Bongo (UK), 1978/1983. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Two different tracks with "Samba" as the title – both very different than the usual samba groove! Amazones De Guinee play a sweet groove with this rumbling bassline at the core, and lots of deft guitar flaring out over the top – while a female lead singer brings the groove ...

Apagya ShowbandTamfo Nyi Ekyir/Mumude ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1973. New Copy ... $11.99
Two slices of 70s Afro Funk from Apagya Showband – both of them great! A rolling groove kicks off "Tamfo Nyi Ekyir" – fast percussion wrapped up with Hammond, to set a great scene for the sinewy lead vocals – which then give way to a killer guitar and sax solos in the ...

Mr Bongo (UK), 1969/1974. New Copy ... $11.99
One of the funkiest cuts ever from the legendary Mulatu – a tune that's got very heavy drums on the bottom, romping through a rhythm that's got plenty of appeal to fans of American funk – while the man himself serves up this moody organ line alongside a weird, exotic reed solo!

Mr Bongo (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $11.99
Electric Brazilian funk from Azimuth – the mighty "Manha", a great cut from the group's earliest years – and a sweet-stepping Fender Rhodes masterpiece!

Mr Bongo (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99
One of the coolest cuts ever from Toquinho – a cut that has Jorge Ben bringing an extra bit of samba soul to the artist's usual guitar-driven groove – at a level that makes the whole thing one of his hippest, grooviest tracks ever! The flipside features the wonderful "A Ra" ... (Funky 45's) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Mindblowing sounds from Blo – easily one of the most compelling groups of the African scene of the 70s – summed up perfectly here in this really essential set!

Mr Bongo (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99
Exactly the kind of grooves that got us digging for Brazilian music in the first place! "O Ronco Da Cuica" is a fantastic reading on the familiar tune by Joao Bosco – done here with this kind of flanged-out spacey sound effects at the beginning, before the track rolls into rootsier ...

Bossa Tres/Ana RoselyImprevisto/Skim Dum Dum Dum ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $7.99
Bossa Tres are out to prove they're one of the deftest bossa combos around – by serving up a triple-time piano groove on "Imprevisto" – alongside work on the drums that's equally deft, and which really blows us away! In fact, the piano and drums almost seem to trade places ... (Funky 45's) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Some of the grooviest work ever cut by Brazilian trombonist Waltel Branco – a set that's very different than just about anything he ever put on record, and which is also material used in an early 70s TV series as well!

Brilliant work by Terry Callier – and his greatest album in years! If you, like us, have loved Terry's older work, but been a bit disappointed by the heavy production of recent albums, then you'll probably love this excellent live set – recorded recently at London's Jazz Cafe, with ...

✨✧ Ely Camargo/Trio EsperencaTaieiras/Nao Aguento Voce ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Ely Camargo sounds wonderful on "Taieiras" – a tune that's kind of a different take on the usual samba groove – with a rhythm that's slower, but which punches harder too – leaving Ely lots of space to open up in this weird, cool vocal passage – which gets some very ...

Mr Bongo (UK), 1970/1971. New Copy ... $11.99
Claudia's a lovely, light-voiced Brazilian singer – with a style that's not unlike Joyce at her early best – but she works here with a great heavy groove on "Macumba" – a tune with these deep male chorus vocals that fit very well with the tune's bassline – while ...

Two great versions of Marcos Valle tunes – both very unique! Claudia sings the funky "Garra" – which has a very similar musical blueprint to Marcos' version, but a nicely lighter vocal overall!

Mr Bongo (UK), 2014. Used ... $6.99
Beat-heavy Brazilian work from Karol Conka – a set that's got some of the same urban vibe of the baile beat work of a few years back, but which also focuses the energy into a tighter, more compact R&B groove! Karol rhymes her way along the groove, but at a pace that's a bit more laidback ... (Brazil) read more CD
