VariousHabibi Funk – An Eclectic Selection Of Music From The Arab World ... LP
Habibi Funk (Germany), 1970s/1980s. New Copy 2LP ... $30.99 32.99
Get ready to have your mind completely blown – because this compilation is one of those completely rare ear-opening experiences that will let you know that there's a hell of a lot of music in the world that you've never heard before – even if, like us, you've heard plenty of funky music over the years! The grooves here definitely live up to the title – as they're completely funky throughout, and in ways that are plenty appealing to fans of Anglo funk, but which have all the Mideast touches you'd expect in the instrumentation – a mad mix of east and west, sacred and secular, with the kind of completely unique vibe that will grab you like the first time you heard Ethiopian soul or Turkish rock! We'd honestly never heard most of this music before – and even though we've dug previous releases on the Habibi Funk label, this namesake set is the moment when they really knock it out of the park, and let us know that they're on to something completely brilliant. Comes with a great set of note, which help the uninitiated like us – and titles include "Casablanca Shuffle" by Belbao, "Wang Dang" by Bob Destiny, "Bsslama Hbibti" by Fadoul, "Sah" by Al Massrieen, "Soul Brother" by Dalton, "Al Asafir" by Kamal Keila, "Rouhi Ya Hafida" by Mallek Mohamed, "La Coladera" by Freh Khodja, "Tape 19.11" by Ahmed Malek, "Ayonha" by Hamid El Shaeri, and "Games" by Samir & Abboud.

✨✧ VariousHabibi Funk Vol 2 – An Eclectic Selection Of Music From The Arab World ... CD
Habibi Funk (Germany), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $15.99 17.98
A second amazing collection of rare funk tracks from the Mid East – work that didn't exist in the same "scene"-styled world as American funk, but which instead comes from a disparate group of recordings that surprisingly, amazingly, turned out to be pretty darn funky! Musical modes differ throughout the tracks in a really nice way – but most of the tunes are unified through strong use of electric bass and heavy percussion – mixed up from number to number, in a way that opens the door to a stunning world of musical exploration we never would have experienced otherwise! We've really grown to love the Habibi Funk label in recent years – and although other records have been great, this set may well be their crowning achievement. Titles include "Sultan Qaboos Song" by Sal Davis, "Ahlo Jedba" by Fadou, "Music De Carneval" by Magdy El Hussainy, "Badala Zamana" by Zohra, "Casba" by Ahmed Male, "El Fen" by Ait Meslayene, "Haditouni" by Douaa, "Tendme" by Ibrahim Hesnawi, and "Reet" by Hamid El Shaeri.

Sharhabil AhmedKing Of Sudanese Jazz ... CD
Habibi Funk (Germany), Late 60s. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
Really fantastic music, with a sound that's as hip as the image on the cover – not jazz as we know it here in the US, but a wonderful hybrid of our own musical roots with elements of Sudanese music – all delivered with a very postmodern mish-mash of styles, and a sound that's unlike anything else we can think of! The blend is a bit like some of the hybrids that were occurring in Ethiopian music at the time – and is maybe as unique as some of those classic recordings – with vocals that have a stretched-out style with lots of inflections, set up next to jagged rhythms that often have as much guitar in the groove as percussion, topped with offbeat reed passages that use lots of very cool tuning! Maybe the best release so far from this wonderful label – with titles that include "El Bambi", "Ya Shagini", "Aziza", "Malak Ya Saly", "Argos Farfish", and "Kamar Dawa". CD

✨✧ Ferkat Al ArdOghneya ... CD
Habibi Funk (Germany), 1979. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
The music of Lebanon never got much global exposure during the 70s – but it's clear that Ferkat Al Ard was bringing plenty of the globe's influences to play on this amazing record – mixing together bits of electric funk, Brazilian jazz, and soulful strings at a level that completely transcends the boundaries of language! The set's a bit like the classic self-titled set by Arthur Verocai from the 70s – music that's completely in a space that's all its own, and which has legendary properties, but also opens up to the listener with charms of its own that require no history or introduction at all – a set that's both personal and majestic at the same time, and which has charms that are impossible to put in words, but which grab you the moment you first give the set a listen. Titles include "Matar Naem", "Juma'A 6 Hziran", "Oghneya", "Matar Al Sabah", "Entazerni", and "Lahnon Lemra'Ati Wa Beladi". CD

Hamid El ShaeriSlam Years 1983 to 1988 ... CD
Habibi Funk (Germany), Mid 80s. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
Great early work from Libyan singer Hamid El Shaeri – an artist who'd soon explode to huge global fame, but who's heard here on early tracks recorded for the Slam label in Egypt! Most of the releases were originally issued only on cassette – a format that allowed Hamid's music to quickly circulate, but which also deteriorated quickly over time – which maybe makes this collection in a more durable format one of the first times his sounds are getting exposed to the world at large! At the time of recording, Hamid was drawing some key influences from British music – and there's great use of keyboards and synthesizers on these cuts – never in any sort of cold way, as there's an undeniable warmth to the vocals that always makes the music groovy and catchy, even if you don't have the language skills to understand the lyrics. Titles include "Reet", "Dari Demou'Ek", "Shantet Safar", "Git Ya Sheta", "Ya Saheb", "Tew'idni Dom", and "Ayonha". CD

Issam HajaliMouasalat Ila Jacad El Ard ... LP
Habibi Funk (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $22.99 25.98
A really mindblowing set of music from late 70s Lebanon – an ambitious blend of jazzy instrumentation, poetic vocals, and larger instrumental impulses – all with this soaring sort of energy that reminds us of some of the more complex Brazilian records of the 70s, or of some of our favorite genre-crossing projects on the Saravah Records label! Most of the tracks feature sweet electric piano lines next to these crispy guitar riffs – flowing with a style that's open and a bit breezy, but given a nice sort of grounding by the vocals of Issam Hajali – an artist who's clearly trying to find a more universal sort of spirit with this album! The whole thing is quite tough to put in words, but has that extra special sort of vibe that's made some of the best of these Habibi Funk reissues so amazing – music we never would have heard otherwise, with titles that include "Lam Azal", "Khobs", "Intazirne", "Yawma Konna", "Ada", and "Ana Damir El Motakallim.".

Kamal KeilaMuslims & Christians ... LP
Habibi Funk (Germany), Early 90s. New Copy 2LP ... $26.99 30.99
Really wonderful work from the early 90s scene in Khartoum – sounds that have a much more 70s-styled sound than you might expect! That sound is in keeping with Kamal Keila, who was never a mainstream artist at all – and instead made material like this away from the limelight, which might account for the older spirit – as the music mixes together currents of vintage American soul, particularly some of the Texas horn-heavy bands of the late 60s – plus a bit of Ethiopian flair in the rhythms, and maybe even a bit of bluesy inflections in Keila's voice – even though the music is hardly in the realm of blues at all! The whole thing is as compelling as it is righteous – a quality you'll certainly discover in the English language lyrics of the set, which comprise about half the material. Titles include "Agricultural Revolution", "Sudan In The Heart Of Africa", "Muslims & Christians", "African Unity", "Taban Ahwak", "Ya Shanifi", and "Ajmal Youm". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Roger FakhrFine Anyway ... CD
Habibi Funk (Germany), Late 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Beautiful sounds from Roger Fahkr – a Lebanese singer/songwriter who recorded most of this music in the late 70s – but with a sound and style that's every bit as compelling as western talents from the earlier part of the decade! The tunes often begin with voice and acoustic guitar, but usually bring in a bit of keyboards or other elements to expand things slightly, but all while keeping the moody quality of Roger's English-language vocals intact – all with a quality that could easily have this work standing next to some of our favorite recordings by artists like Rodriguez, Terry Callier, or Alzo & Udine! There's an inexplicable quality to all of these cuts – a uniqueness that really lives up to our comparison with those other greats – and the whole pacakge is a huge discovery of an artist who might have been a huge global force, had he had the chance back in the 70s. Titles include "Sad Sad Songs", "My Baby She Is As Down As I Am", "Express Line", "Insomnia Blue", "Lady Rain", "Everybody Is Going Home", "Sitting In The Sun", "The Wizard", "Trip Thru Time", "Gone Away Again", and "Had To Come Back Wet".

✨✧ Majid SoulaChant Amazigh ... LP
Habibi Funk (Germany), 1980s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
That's not a typo in the title – although the music of Majid Soula is pretty darn amazing – served up here in a collection of work from the 80s, all of which serves to find a new sort of contemporary expression for the Amazigh culture of North Africa! Majid uses a fair bit of keyboards and rhythm programs on the cuts – very much an 80s expression of some of the 70s funk modes we've loved on other collections from Habibi Funk – and many of these tracks only appeared on cassette at the time, which makes the package not only one of the first global collections to showcase Majid's music, but also one of the first in a longer-lasting format too. The production is great – every bit at the top-shelf level we've come to love from this label, who've become a crucial gateway to Mid-East sounds that most of us never would have heard otherwise. Titles include "Win Terram", "Tafat Instrumental", "Ageruj", "Tameghra", "Algerie Maroc", "A Kem Gegh A Tamurt", and "Lgira". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ FadoulAl Zman Saib (with download) ... LP
Habibi Funk (Germany), Mid 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Maybe one of the funkiest records ever cut in Morocco – the debut set from Fadoul – a singer who starts out the record with a cover of James Brown funk, then moves into a whole host of heady sounds as the set goes on! In truth, these guys are probably more of a garage band than a soul combo – but the drums are often plenty heavy, and Fadoul's vocals have this raw, unbridled power that's quite different than anything we've heard from any other singer in Arabic – a quality that's clearly inspired by the sounds of the west, but delivered here in a very original style of its own! The group's tight drums and bass make all the tunes pretty darn great – and even if you can't understand the lyrics, Fadoul is expressive enough that you can definitely get his message – as he sings it loud and proud on the cuts "Sid Redad", "Kalam Al Nass", "Taarida", "La Tiq Tiq Latiq", "Tayeh", "Laylat Al Jadba", and "Maktoub Lah".

VariousOriental Rare Groove – Rare Funky Songs From The Arabic World ... LP
Wagram (France), 1970s. New Copy 2LP ... $33.99 34.99
Forgive the record its title, and dive in deeply to the mix of tracks within – as there's a whole heck of a lot here we might not have heard otherwise – served up from a great array of rare Mid-Eastern records of the 70s, plus some other bits from later years too! The vibe is maybe a bit like some of the releases on the Habibi Funk label of late, but the span is a bit wider too – as sources for sounds stretch all across North Africa, up the east coast of the Mediterranean too – tracks from disparate scenes, but all brought together in the love of a groove! Titles include "Give Me Disco" by Raja Zahr, "Ma'A Ibnat" by Ouiness, "Nisyan" by Ahmed Fakroun, "Zina" by Raina Rai, "Nadim" by Freh Khodja, "Drum Sequence" by Raja Zahr, "I Love You Lina" by Elias Rahbani, "Sehr El Oyoun" by Mustapha Amar, "Pop Corn" by Omar Khorshid, "Halelo" by Dur Dur Band, "Mabruk" by Ali Hassan Kuban, and "Sabrina" by Freedom.
