Rajasthan Street Music
Folk, devotional, orchestral and freely informal music from western India. 'The most important criteria for recording these musicians in their homes (or on the streets) was the beauty and raw power in their music.'




Ti Paris Et Sa Guitare
The landmark 1958 debut of this revered Haitian troubadour. Voice, maracas, guitar... a bluesy kind of folk music just a short hop from calypso. Beautifully simple, rooted, intimate, full of feeling.




Bayo Damazio Listen To The Music
Classy, spaced funk, originally issued in 1981 by Phonodisk, the most ambitious Nigerian label at that time. The Mighty Flames band expertly blends an Afro-cocktail of Roy Ayers, Kool And The Gang, Chic...




Selda Vurulduk Ey Halkim Unutma Bizi
Her fourth LP, from 1979, on the eve of the coup d'etat in Turkey. (The military government hauled her into court three times.) Charged songs with reverbed guitars and baglamas about mountains, families, desolation...



Selda
Terrific, angrily socialist Turkish folk music crossed with synths, fuzz and stoner flute. Her second LP.



Musi O Tunya Give Love To Your Children
The Zambians' second LP of funk, psych, and fuzzed-out Afrobeat. 64–page booklet includes interviews with Rikki Ilionga and co. The vinyl edition adds sides from rare sevens, 1972-6.



EEK Live At The Cairo High Cinema Institute
Cranked-up shaabi, hotly recommended. Islam Chipsy playing synth, with drummers Khaled Mando and Islam Tata. Check film of them here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=GNLv5WBWe6M



DJ Sardena Studio Sardena
An invigorating sampling of the prodigious output of this joint in Matariya, Cairo. Mahragan, or electro-shaabi, stripped down Sardena-style: auto-tuned, maxed-out vocals, thumping beats, synths, wild effects.



100 Moons Hindustani Vocal Art, 1930-55
Artists like Faiyaz Khan, Hirabai Barodekar, Dattreya Vishnu Paluskar, and Bade Ghulam Ali Khan, expertly presented by Ian Nagoski.



Let No One Judge You Early Recordings From Iran, 1906-1933
Ravishingly beautiful, achingly precious songs and instrumentals, sumptuously presented: the Royal Court Orchestra in 1906 through to a hauntingly soulful Hafez setting by Moluk Zarrabi of Kashan, from 1933.



Highlife Underground Mpese Mpese Band, Canadoes Dance Band
Drumtalk folds the Ghanaian highlife of Mpese Mpese into a future-bass fault, from Hackney to Accra; on the flip, Sofrito dusts down some whirling, deep, minor-key business from Nigeria, 1982.



Anastenaria, Vatican Shadow, Pete Swanson Anastenaria
Uncanny, fervid music from fire-walking rituals — 1979 field recordings from northern Greece — alongside killer new invocations of the spirit-world… excoriated, dread, ecstatic, driven.
