Antonio Adolfo & A Brazuka/Erasmo Carlos & Os TremGloria Glorinha/Coqueiro Verde ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1970. New Copy ... $11.99
A sweetly dancing groover from Antonio Adolfo – a tune that has a female voice over jazzy rhythms, a lot like Sergio Mendes & Brazil 66 – but with the weirder, wilder touches that make Adolfo's music so great! The flipside features one of the funkiest cuts ever from Erasmo Carlos ... (Funky 45's) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Mr Bongo (UK), 1967/1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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 ... $7.99
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 ... $7.99
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 ...

An amazing bit of Brazilian funk – and the best album ever by this exciting soulful duo!

Mr Bongo (UK), 1969/1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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), 1977. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two fantastic funky cuts from this legendary Brazilian group! "Maria Fumaca" has fast-changing funky jazz rhythms that are completely outta sight – almost more a 70s Bay Area jazz funk groove overall, complete with great horns and keyboards!

BarbatuquesAyu ... CD
Mr Bongo (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
Very cool sounds from this unique Brazilian group – an ensemble whose music mostly comes from their voices and percussive sounds made on their bodies! The approach is surprisingly great – and maybe not nearly as squishy as you'd expect – as there's a clean, clear sound to the ... (Brazil) read more CD

Mr Bongo (UK), 1975/1980. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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 ...

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 ... $7.99
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 ...

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!

Two funky samba numbers – back to back!
