Las Malas Amistades Maleza
‘The bad influences’, from Bogota, with their third album for us: twenty-eight gorgeous variations of saudade, in a warmly acoustic, post-punk take on Tropicalismo — impromptu, snapshot and sublime.



Ilaiyaraaja Fire Star
The King of Kollywood's magpie, experimental, stripped-electro soundtracks to all-action, eighties Tamil boilers, with characteristically lavish Bombay Connection styling out. Boss.

Jubilant, fiery, visionary Afro-jazz and funk. His second, mid-seventies LP.



Mark Ernestus Presents Jeri-Jeri Xale
A next-level three-tracker, intense and roiling, featuring a mesmeric six-minute instrumental, with Thierno Sarr grooving out on the top string of his bass, adding an elusive Manding flavour to the deep Mbalax mix.




Armando Pereza Wild Thing
The Tjader sideman stretching out on congos and bongos in full Gary McFarland settings.



Ali Birra Ammalele
Imperial Bodyguard Band singer — alongside Mahmoud Ahmed and Tilahun Gessesse — who tuned his guitar like an oud. Oromo reasoning about love, existence and resistance, with a tasty Arab twang.

A shocking-rocking Mulatu version, and some improv. Limited, to go with the tour.
