Ravi Shankar And Ali Akbar-Kahn The Master Musicians Of India
Two ragas recorded for Prestige — with Ali Akbar-Khan, the world’s best sarod player, plus tabla and tamboura. (The first tamboura is Nodu C. Mullick, who made Shankar’s sitar.)



Accordeon Musette, Swing: Paris 1925-1954
The Parisian musette style — from the accordion-banjo-drum trios typically heard in dance halls in the Roaring Twenties, to the refined swing of the 1940s.





Fela Kuti Shakara, London Scene
Shakara is killer, with Fela and Africa 70 right at the top of their game. London Scene has Egbe Mi O, where afrobeat is joined spine-tinglingly by the Abbey Road house choir.






Joao Gilberto The Boss Of The Bossa Nova
All his essential early recordings as a leader, including the first three LPs in their entirety, plus rarities like his originals of Manha de Carnaval, O Nosso Amor and A Felicidade, from the sevens.



Peter King African Dialects
Heavy blend of Afrobeat, Afrofunk and Caribbean styles. From 1979, the last of PK's London recordings, before his return to Nigeria that year. With notes and photos newly supplied by the artist.





Ethiopiques 28 Ali Mohammed Birra
The Imperial Bodyguard Band singer, who tuned his guitar like an oud. Oromo reasoning about love, existence and resistance, with a tasty Arab twang. Mississippi presented him on vinyl recently.



Nippon Girls Japanese Pop, Beat And Bossa Nova 1966-70
Belting and brassy, sexy and ardent, this is great fun.



Mark Ernestus Presents Jeri-Jeri Casamance
A traditional Jola rhythm, with tuned, talking and kit drums swarming across scraps of guitar and the Mboups singing; then a more deeply dug-in, spaced-out funk, spun from a Serer rhythm. With full instrumentals.
