Kenya Special Selected African Recordings From The 1970s And 1980s
Kikuyu ‘liquid soul’, Luo benga with its rat-tat-tat beat and layered guitars, Swahili afrobeat, Congolese rumba, plus influences from SA and Zambia, disco and funk, coastal rhythms like chakacha. Mostly from 45s. ...



C.S. Crew Funky Pack
A late-70s Nigerian blend of Kool And The Gang, Mandrill, and the Ohio Players... with a Moog synthesizer thrown in for good measure.



C'Est Chic! French Girl Singers Of The 1960s
Great-fun, expertly-assembled, well-presented collection of ye-ye girl pop, featuring Francoise Hardy (of course) alongside BB, Anna Karina (from the Godard films) and co. An LP now, too.




Tadjikistan Abduvali Abdurashidov: Classical Music and Songs
A master of the sato (a bowed tambur or long-necked lute held vertically) joined by Tajik singer Ozoda Ashurova in this beautiful, haunting, little-known court music. Plus doyra drum and dotar lute.



Theppabutr Productions The Man Behind The Molam Sound, 1972-75
Profiling producer Theppabutr Satirodchompu — the first in a series of albums celebrating the key-players of modern molam music, from Northeast Thailand. Limited vinyl from Light In The Attic.





Turkey The Ceremony Of The Bektashi Djem
A liturgy and feast headquartered in the mountains of Antalya, with semah sacred dancing and sung poetry accompanied on the saz lute. Six instrumentalists, two vocal lineups here: from 2004 and 2011.



Colomach
Collectors' Afro-rock from 1974, fusing traditional Sahel music with the style of raw, garage psych explored by the likes of Hedzoleh Soundz and Edzayawa. Limited 180g vinyl in rigid, paste-on sleeves.



Ramesh
'In 1970s Tehran, the classically-trained Ramesh played the serious, quiet marquesa against Googoosh’s languorous pop princess.' Vintage Iranian pop from rare singles: lutes, goblet drums, brass, strings, synths.




London Is The Place For Me 5 And 6: Afro-Cubism, Calypso, Highlife, Mento, Jazz
At last, a fresh delivery of open-hearted, bitter-sweet, mash-up postcards to the here and now, from young black London.
Proper Brit Pop.




Super Mama Djombo Festival
Fabulous dance music from Guinea Bissau, done full justice by Lisbon's Valentim de Carvalho studios in 1979. The title track sticks it to imperialism; the love-song Julia is a Djombo masterpiece.
