✨✧ Antonio Adolfo/Mario Castro Neves & Samba SaDois Minutos De Uma Novo Dia/Candomble ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1967/1969. New Copy ... $11.99
A beautifully baroque groove from Antonio Adolfo – set to soaring arrangements that are topped by lovely female vocals – very groovy, with a nice undercurrent of funk, in that great late 60s Brazilian style! "Candomble" is a jazzy samba number from Mario Castro Neves – ... (Funky 45's) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Mr Bongo (UK), 1969/1975. New Copy ... $11.99
Two Ethio funk tracks with a heck of a lot of power! Mahmoud Ahmed is on the a-side – singing in that beautifully melancholy style of his, while the backing group his this funky groove with chunky organ and some nicely peppered horns, too! There's more great organ on "Ene Negn Bay ... (Funky 45's) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Quetcy Alma/CafeOh Poor Me/Identify Yourself ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1973/1974. New Copy ... $11.99
Quetcy Alma's got a name you might find tricky to pronounce – but that's hardly going to matter once you hear the groove in this tune – a bumping, loping style that almost more late 60s Latin soul than you'd guess from the date – and which makes a nicely odd mix with Alma's ...

✨✧ Apagya ShowbandTamfo Nyi Ekyir/Mumude ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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 ...

✨✧ Mulatu AstatkeYegelle Tezeta/Yekatit ... 7-inch
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!

Mulatu Atsatke/Teshome MetekuAssiyo Bellema/Hasabe ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1969. New Copy ... $11.99
One of the most Latin-styled tracks we've ever heard from the legendary Mulatu – a tone that's got fierce timbales in the lead, some nice conga lines, and chanted vocals from the group – plus great use of steel drums too! "Hasabe" on the flipside is from Teshome Meteku – ... (Funky 45's) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Mr Bongo (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Electric Brazilian funk from Azimuth – the mighty "Manha", a great cut from the group's earliest years – and a sweet-stepping Fender Rhodes masterpiece! "America Latina" has sublime harmony vocals from Quarteto Forma – coming together and soaring over this ... (Funky 45's) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Jorge Ben & Toquinho/Joao DonatoCarolina, Carol Bela/Ara ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

Mr Bongo (UK), 1975/1980. New Copy ... $11.99
Two versions of Jorge Ben's "Xica Da Silva" – one by the man himself, one by Miriam Makeba! Jorge's version has this nicely raspy vocal, and a great riffing groove – very much in his best Afro Brasil sort of style – and Makeba takes the cut into some very cool territory ...

BloChapter One ... LP
EMI/Mr Bongo (UK), 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $23.99 24.98
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! Blo began as an Afro-rock combo, but grew to have plenty of funky touches too – which means that the set's got amazing ... (Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Joao Bosco/Antonio Adolfo E A BrazucaO Ronco Da Cuica/Transamazonica ... 7-inch
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 ...

Som Livre/Mr Bongo (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
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!

Ely Camargo/Trio EsperencaTaieiras/Nao Aguento Voce ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $11.99
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), 1971. New Copy ... $11.99
One of the funkiest versions of "Jesus Christo" you'll ever hear – a take on the Carlos' brothers tune that's even better than the original, thanks to romping drums and this wicked tangle of organ, piano, and guitar! "Ossain" is great, too – given almost a Jorge Ben ... (Funky 45's) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

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 ...

Mr Bongo (UK), 1971. New Copy ... $11.99
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! Os Tres Morais harmonize beautifully on the jazzy "Freio Aerodinamico" ... (Funky 45's) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record
