Forest Music Northern Belgian Congo, 1952
Two Mangbetu communities from the rainforest, the Mayogo and the Meje: drum ensembles, mass singing, likembe. Also the xylophone and kundi harp of the Azande people; more harp songs by the Balendu.



Forgotten Guitars From Mozambique Portuguese East Africa, 1955, '56, '57
The roots of marrabenta — compelling guitar-playing, and gritty songs about everyday issues, like having kids, sleeping around, snobbery and the supernatural.



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.



France Basque Country
'Wild songs' (without words), sophisticated choral singing, improvisations, pastorals and newer song forms.



France Songs Of Central Brittany
Erik Marchand singing, with his accompanist Thierry Robin finding the ud better suited than guitar or mandolin to the intervalic arrangements of quarter tones peculiar to this repertoire.



Franco Et Le Tout-Puissant OK Jazz Francophonic
The first volume of a long-awaited retrospective — spanning 1953 to 1980 — of the Congolese colossus.



Franco Et Le Tout-Puissant OK Jazz Francophonic 2
Reviewing the eighties (up till his death in 1989), including big hits like Mario, with no let-up in quality since the early fifties.



Freedom Family Ayentsoo
Terrific West African funk from 1974. The FF backed Geraldo Pino for years, before recording with Odion Iruoje (Ofege, SJOB Movement, Fela etc etc). Stone classic from start to finish. Ace notes, too.




Gabi Lunca Sounds From A Bygone Age
The fifth in this unmissable series showcases the traditional Rumanian music of the great Gypsy diva, from the 1960s and 70s. Refined and full of yearning.



Gabon Myene Songs
Mainly for rituals of initiation, possession and mourning, with the women singing and shaking a tchege, besides drums, a palm branch hit with a stick, a harp, and a bow played with the mouth.



Gabon Music Of The Bibyak Pygmies
Polyphonic song — a kind of broken, yodelling counterpoint — accompanied by drums, sticks, sanza, vegetal trumpets, hand-clapping.



Gabon Atege Songs
Terrific recordings of Atege (or Bateke) contrapuntal polyphony from the past sixty years, with its elaborate tertiary structure, each part called a different name and using a different vocal technique.




Gamelan Of Peliatan, 1952 Dancers Of Bali
Gong, angklung and gender wayang under the direction of Anak Agung Gede Mandera.
