Ojo BalingoAfrotunes – Best of Juju Vol 2 – Oba Mimo Olorun Ayo (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Tabansi/BBE (UK), Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 26.98
Excellent sounds from Ojo Balingo – a Nigerian juju artist from the same stretch as King Sunny Ade – but one whose music is much more obscure to audiences on this side of the Atlantic! Balingo's group here has the loose, spontaneous vibe that characterizes juju at its best – this ... (Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Dytomite Starlite BandDytomite Starlite Band of Ghana ... LP
Tabansi/BBE (UK), Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
That's "Dytomite", not "dynamite" – and don't ask us what it means, either! But we can tell you that the set's a great bit of highlife, recorded with a lean, breezy feel – a bit more heft than just the duo pictured on the cover – with criss-crossing guitars, ...

Eze Nri Royal DrummersEze Nri Royal Drummers Vol 1 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Tabansi/BBE (UK), Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 28.99
One of the most rootsy albums ever issued by the Tabansi label – a set that's quite different than their more familiar electric modes, and which features very raw, tribal sounds by a percussion group that is tied to the Niri Kingdom in Nigeria! As you'd guess from their name, the ensemble is ... (Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Tabansi/BBE (UK), Early 80s. New Copy ... $14.99 18.99
A nice mix of older highlife modes with some of the more electric touches of the 80s – still produced with a nice lean vibe overall, and plenty of live energy that leaps between the riffing guitar, percussion, and horns – all augmented by these nicely quirky lines on keyboards!

✨✧ Zeal OnyiaTrumpet King Zeal Onyia Returns ... CD
Tabansi/BBE (UK), 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Zeal Onyia is definitely the trumpet king here – at least of the Nigerian scene in which this album was recorded – as he blows strong solos throughout, and really brings a lot of jazz-based energy to the highlife rhythms! The use of trumpet in a smaller combo mode is really great ... (Global Grooves) read more CD

Tabansi/BBE (UK), Mid 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sweet synth soul from 80s Nigeria – a set that definitely shows the evolution of that country's sound in the decade after the rise of Afro Funk – and a record that also delivers plenty of the beats promised in the title!

Catchy, clubby grooves from the team of Zack Roberts and Gebah Swary – a Liberian duo who issued this very catchy record at the start of the 80s!

Beautifully gliding sounds from Lumingu "Zorro" Puati – a guitarist who glides along here on rhythms inspired by the Caribbean side of the Colombian music spectrum – but who gives the record a definite West African twist!
