Orchestra Super Mazembe Mazembe At 45 RPM
Mazembe finally arrived in Nairobi in 1975, having left Zaire some five years earlier. The first years were lean, but in 1977 they smashed it with the single Kassongo... Magnificent East African rhumba 45s.



Ravi Shankar Improvisations
Eastern jazz from 1962, with Gary Peacock and Bud Shank. Including improvisations on Shankar's theme for Pather Panchali what a great film and two traditional Indian works, Carnatic and Hindustani both.





Bassekou Kouyate And Ngoni Ba Jama Ko
Fabulous, tough ngoni (with a wah-wah pedal), and songs railing against radical Islamic law in the North, and last year's coup, and calling for tolerance in true Malian tradition. 'Magnificent', said The Guardian.



Dur-Dur Band Dur-Dur
Precious, late-eighties dance music from Mogadishu. Big group three horns, four singers plus three backing, two guitars, keys, drummer, two percussionists, bassist choca with funk swagger and highlife shimmy.







Ravi Shankar Three Ragas
His Western debut, recorded in London in 1956: amongst his very best albums, conceived as a kind of introduction to his music. With Chatur Lal, one of the greatest tabla players of all time.





Os Mutantes The Sixth Finger: Singles, Rarities And Outakes 1965-1968
At their wildest, most raw, psychedelic unreleased and live, outtakes and advertising jingles, with many different and longer versions of old favourites. Wicked cover group-shot!



Mark Ernestus Presents Jeri-Jeri Bamba
Rock-steady, slow-burning, hard funk, a kind of fatback Mbalax, in no mood to be messed with, with full vocal and instrumental versions; plus two vivid sketches, talking drums to the fore.
