Tropical Funk Experience
A Quantic selection, mostly Colombian, great stuff.



Turkish Freakout!
Choice sixties and seventies psych, funk and rock, swiped from Turkish 45s.



Lobi Traore Rainy Season Blues
Chokingly beautiful last recordings, singing with soul and tenderness to his own guitar accompaniment. We loved Lobi, and we'll miss him badly.
Quintessential Malian blues.



Rita Lee Build Up
Her solo debut in 1970, backed by fellow Mutantes, with arrangements by Rogerio Duprat. A flamboyant, tainted pop album. It doesn't sound like Nico at all, but its moves put her in mind.



Josephine Foster Anda Jaleo
Folk songs from Lorca’s collection Las Canciones Populares Espanolas make rather ruddy, incongruous settings for Foster's voice. The empty ones are best.






Os Mutantes Tecnicolor
Recorded in Paris in 1970 (but not released till recently), revisiting classics like Baby and Panis Et Circenses from the first two albums, in English. Heavyweight vinyl.



Abdoulaye Traore
Protege of Yoro Sidibe, master donso ngoni player, a hunter's musician.



Ethiopiques 1 Golden Years Of Modern Ethiopian Music, 1969-1975
Music from the Amha label run by Amha Ashete, driving force of modern Ethiopian music.




Ethiopiques 11 Alemu Aga
With virtuoso self-accompaniment on the beguena — an oversize ten-string lyre, the oldest instrument played in Ethiopia: religious songs as well as traditional fables, folk tales and poems.



Ethiopiques 12 Kirba Afaa Xonso
The music of the Konso — a tribe from the Sudanese border country — to do with daily chores, sacred or ritual matters, and entertainment. Flutes, bells, harps, horns, xylophones, drums.



Ethiopiques 13 Ethiopian Groove
Another survey of the golden age of modern Ethiopian dance music — bound up with the production of vinyl records — between 1969 and 1978.
