'Soultown, rhythm and blues, funk and psych sounds from the townships, 1960-75'.

Representing fifteen years worth of live recordings, rife with frenzied Syrian dabke, Iraqi choubi and the mix of Arabic, Kurdish and Turkish styles unique to northeastern Syria.

The second album by the Ghanaian superstars, from 1974, for a change mixing their hit-making high-life with traditional rhythms and folk touches, and a little funk and afrobeat.

Faisal Helwani's early-seventies project, mixing Ghanaian folklore and musical roots with jazz and rock. The debut of material re-vamped as the Masekela vehicle, Introducing Hedzoleh Sounds, with added trumpet.




Mbuti Pygmies Of The Ituri Rainforest
A landmark field recording, exquisitely done, ambient and intimate, with beautiful music, and documentation by Colin Turnbull. A hit with Peter Brook, anyway.



The LA Drivers Union Por Por Group Por Por, Honk Horn Music Of Ghana
The squeeze-bulb honk horns of the truck and bus drivers union, belting it out with bells, drums, and voices, on the fiftieth anniversary of Ghana's independence. Terrific stuff.

His earliest recordings, for Emory Cook unflinching social commentary, spun with invincible exuberance and literary panache.



Indonesian Popular Music Kroncong, Dangdut, and Langgam Jawa
