Virtuosic oud-playing from northern Syria, aiming for the evocation of 'spiritual states', in-between and unresolved.



Cameroon Flutes Of The Mandara Mountains
Fantastic music. Flutes made of bamboo, shell, clay, wood, bark, horn or reed, along with breathing songs, transverse horns, harp, xylophone, drums and percussion, in various lineups.



William Onyeabor Who Is William Onyeabor?
Epic Nigerian disco-funk with intricate percussion breaks, bleepy synths, politics, Krautrock, cheese, oddity, wonder. Hotly recommended.



Black Man's Cry The Inspiration Of Fela Kuti
Plenty of TKOs, the Colombians for example, beautifully presented. A moving, mind-boggling testament to Afrobeat, with shout-outs from Ghana, Trinidad, the US and elsewhere. Last few vinyls. Don't miss.

Christie Azumah And The Uppers International Din Ya Sugri
Knockout Ghanaian music from the mid-1970s urgent, killer Afro-funk and super-charged highlife, female-fronted for a change. Lovely artwork, too, beautifully printed; precious photos on the insert. Scorcher.

The Semi-Colon Ndia Egbuo Ndia (Afro-Jigida)
Bee's knees Nigerian Afro-rock from 1976. The CDs are exceptionally well-presented, with plenty of musical extras, and a book of photos, notes and translations.
