Funsho Ogundipe The Afrobeat Chronicles Vol. 2
Warm, relaxed, West London afro-jazz from our friend Funsho and his friends.



Royal Court Music From Uganda 1950 And 1952
The royal music of the Ganda, Nyoro and Ankole peoples, lost when the palaces were burned down in 1966, and many of the musicians killed, and their instruments (some of them over four hundred years old) destroyed.



At The Court Of The Mwami Rwanda, 1952
From the court of the Kingdom of Rwanda — abolished nine years later when the Republic was formed: the royal drums and courtly music disappeared along with the Mwami, or 'king-shepherd', after five centuries.



Les Mangalepa Endurance
Scintillating East African dance music, from seventies Nairobi. The band's name mangles 'marquez le pas', meaning 'mark time': sure enough, the beat is irresistible.



Ali Farka Toure Savane
The last record, sadly, by a giant of our time. But beautiful.



Boogaloo Pow Wow Dancefloor Rendez-Vous In Young Nuyorica
This scorching compilation brings to the table the brilliant, explosive array of styles (at the time, warring) which burned up Latino dancefloors in the political and cultural ferment of Sixties New York.



Gwigwi Mrwebi Mbaqanga Songs
'The South African folk music that makes people glad to be alive!'
With Dudu Pukwana and Chris McGregor.




Las Malas Amistades Jardin Interior
New, from Colombia. '... deliciously haunting... rekindles the spirit of DIY that their British counterparts have so patently forgotten', The Times; 'startlingly poignant', Metro.



London Is The Place For Me 4: African Dreams And The Piccadilly High Life
'*****', The Times, Independent On Sunday, Daily Telegraph, What's On, Evening Standard, The Independent. 'Marvellous pop — catchy, fun, young, effortless', The Times; 'one of the delights of the age', Songlines.



London Is The Place For Me 3: Ambrose Adekoya Campbell
Modern Nigerian music starts here.
'*****', Mojo; 'these songs leap out of the past like madeleines soaked in palm wine', The Observer; 'impeccably curated and packaged', The Wire.



Tony Allen Lagos No Shaking
'CD Of The Week... the best soul album — in the real sense of the word — you'll hear this year... classic, blistering afro-beat', Daily Telegraph; 'as tight as a pressure cooker... fierce and fun', The Wire.



Funsho Ogundipe The Afrobeat Chronicles Vol. 1
The 2002 5-tracker that made us sit up to Funsho's 'jazz side of afrobeat'.




Lagos Chop Up Fuji And Afrobeat, Highlife And Juju
‘*****’, The Independent; 'a vibrancy and energy that make it impossible to sit still’, Metro; 'shines from Shina to Shina', The Beat; 'CD Of The Week... astonishing', Daily Telegraph; 'incendiary', The Observer.
