Afro NationalTemedi Oh/Den Kick ... 7-inch
No Wahala Sounds (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... $8.99
Two great tracks by this group from Sierra Leone! "Temedi Oh" has this fast-moving groove that's totally wonderful – followed by guitar that riffs along in quick time with the pulsating bass, and topped with a vocal call that's like icing on the cake! "Den Kick" is a bit slower in pace, but equally groovy – with guitar lines that ring out almost louder than the vocals at times. 7-inch, Vinyl record

VariousKenya Congo Connection – From the Archives Of Audio Productions Nairobi, Kenya ... LP
No Wahala Sounds (UK), Early 80s. New Copy ... $19.99
A treasure trove of rare singles recorded in Nairobi – easily one of the most welcoming scenes in East Africa during the 80s – especially in comparison to more restrictive cultural territory to the west! At the time, Nairobi really opened up its door to new sounds and ideas – which made the city a wonderfully fertile ground not just for music, but for positive spirit as well – with a vibe that flows beautifully through the selection or tracks here by a variety of different artists! All the tracks were recorded at the Audio Productions studio in the city – and although the work was issued on different labels, there's nicely unified vibe going on – again maybe just from the energy and strong spirit that flows through the music. Most tracks are heavy on cascading guitar lines tied to the rhythms – and titles include "Mado Zaina (part 1)" by Bana Likasi, "Solongo (part 1)" by Orchestra Bana Sambo, "Wavinya" by Kalambya Sisters, "Massa (parts 1 & 2)" by Orchestra Shika Shika, "Mkamba's Day (part 1)" by Kilimambogo Brothers, and the tracks "Wafanyi Kazi (part 1)" and "Ninfany Nini (part 1)" by Issa Juma & Super Wanyika. LP, Vinyl record album

VariousNairobi Calling – Selected Recordings 1976 to 1996 ... LP
No Wahala Sounds (UK), Late 70s/1980s/1990s. New Copy ... $19.99
A revelatory selection of tracks recorded on a Nairobi music scene that was really overflowing with creative energy – so much so that the music here doesn't just come from Kenyan talents, but from Tanzania and the Congo as well! There's a positive spirit that imbues most of the grooves – sounds that are upbeat and pulsating with rhythm – yet also put together at a level that's never too commercial at all – especially resisting the temptations that over-polished so much other music from the continent during the big world music boom of the 80s. Instead, these tunes revel in long, open interplay between guitars, bass, percussion, and voice – on selections that include "Ochieng DJ Komoro" by Victoria Chomeka, "Maria" by Orchestra Moja One Band, "Remmy Belesa" by Biashara Jazz Band, "Gilbert Wambida" by International De Nelly, "Amemiki (part 2)" by Orchestra Bana Ekanga, and "Nakuomba" by Baba Ilunga Wa Ilunga – a lost archive track, which appears here for the first time ever. LP, Vinyl record album
