Sierra Leone Traditional Music
Fula flute and keronaru lutes, the wedding music of Karanko xylophone ensembles, Mandingo three-string harps and Christian hymns, the ceremonial music of Themne and Mende secret societies...



Silvestre El Rey Del Ritmo Afro-Cubano Oriza (Afro Cuban Rhythms)
Buzzing mid-fifties New York percussion showcase timbale, bongo, maracas, quijada, tumbadora, cow-bell, cabasa, guiro, clave combining Latin, jazz and Santeria.



Dona Dumitru Siminica Sounds From A Bygone Age
Desolate gypsy blues from the Bucharest suburbs of the 1960s, and some of the most soulful music ever made. Siminica's beautiful, beautiful falsetto over broken, staggering tempi.



Simla Beat 70
Legendary compilation marking the All-India Beat Contest run by Simla cigarettes. Garage, beat and psych acridity... with pungent Eastern aromas. Great stuff.



Simla Beat 71
Indian beat, garage and psych from the 1971 competition... bands from Shilong, Poona, Delhi, Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Cuttack and Panjim.



Charanjit Singh Ten Ragas To A Disco Beat
Astounding 1982 attempt to feed ancient raga forms to the synths (and temperament) which would define Acid, the Roland TB-303 and TR-808. Pulsating, minimal grooves, a living Indian antecedent of House.



Los Siquicos Litoralenos Sonido Chipadelico
Bracingly gone-wrong, outsider mix of slo-mo cumbia, space-rock row, shamanistic ranting, knockabout Tropicalia, psych 'n' electronics from Corrientes, rural Argentina. Sun City Girls loves em. Warmly recommended.



Sir Victor Uwaifo Guitar-Boy Superstar, 1970-76
The irresistible, inimitable rock 'n' soul highlife of Benin City's prodigal son.






SJOB Movement A Move in The Right Direction
Four members of Sonny Okosun's band, edging things on in 1974: deep, spacey afro-funk.



Mustapha Skandrani Istikhbars And Improvisations
Improvisatory solo piano from 1965 a trans-Mediterranean crossover based on traditional Algerian vocal pieces, with roots in Spanish Islamic culture. Hotly recommended.



Slovakia Folk Music
A lavish array, with scattered lines of descent (Gypsy, Jewish, Ukrainian, German and so on), from rootsy and robust to other-worldly. Pipes and drones (fujara), dulcimer, violin, polyphony from the heart of Europe...
