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.



Nigeria Afrobeat Special The New Explosive Sound In 1970s Nigeria
Blistering Fela-inspired Afro-funk, as if in cahoots with the recent Now Again haymaker Lagos micro to its cross-continental macro, a double whammy and a half. The vinyl set has no less than five exclusives.



Tirogo Float
Crossing African psych and slinky afro-disco and funk, from 1977, Nigeria.



Mebusas Blood Brothers
It says 'Volume 1' on the cover, and this debut is full of promise, but it's a one-off, from Nigeria, 1973: African styles grooving together with Latin and Caribbean, US soul and funk, and psych rock.



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



Orchestre Poly-Rythmo De Cotonou Echos Hypnotiques, 1969 - 1979
Much better sound than the first volume, and presented in the fine style of this label, with a 44-page booklet full of great photos, low-down and interviews.



Blo Chapters And Phases
The first two of their six albums Chapter One (1973) and Phases (1975) groundblazing, out-there Afro rock.



Tanzania Wagogo Songs
Chimelougali is yodelling; luchenze is hooting whilst darting the tongue from side to side; kuama are trembling sounds, and rhythmic interjections. Including polyphonies, and a few with instruments.



Niger Hunters Of The Dallol Mawri
Rugged songs with gurumi lute accompaniment to celebrate the opening of the bush, summon genies, honour animals and praise huntsmen.



Niger Zarma And Songhay Epics
Two 'ancestor tales' taking us back five hundred years, recited by Jibo Baje, who accompanies himself on the three-string moolo the last griot standing with the knowledge and skills to do this.



Niger Harouna Goge, Dendi Country
Music for spirit possession ceremonies, performed on the goge, a bowed single-string spike-fiddle a half-calabash covered in iguana skin, with a wooden neck, and a string made of bunched horsehair.



Pax Nicholas And The Nettey Family Na Teef Know The Road Of Teef
Addo-Nettey was a conga player and singer for Fela's Africa 70 when he cut this heavy afro-funk album in 1973, with the Martin Brothers Band from Portharcort, for the Tabansi label.
