Benin Yoruba Music
Recordings of ritual and entertainment music from 1958, 1969, and the nineties.



Benin Bariba Music
Griot music with delicate dambararou lute; ritual possession songs with gogue fiddle and gon and karou drums; and a women's choir.



Bitter Funeral Beer Band Live In Frankfurt 82  With Don Cherry And K. Shridhar
Mixing the funeral music of the Lo-Birifor people of northern Ghana, and jazz improvisation, with a Nordic touch. The debut was on ECM; one more, Praise Drumming, on the Swedish Dragon label.



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.




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




Brand New Wayo Funk, Fast Times And Nigerian Boogie Badness,1979-1983
Music from the Second Republic, twenty-three years of military dictatorship ended, at the crest of Nigeria's oil boom. Good-times disco-soul shuffle, mixing in jazz-funk, synth pop and Afro vibes.




Gangbe Brass Band Asiko
Kicking New Orleans / Afrobeat onslaughts from Benin. Great to see Roswell Rudd guesting.



Segun Bucknor Who Say I Tire
Politically engaged Afro-soul from the start of the 1970s. You'll just have to imagine the 'bare torsos, cowrie shells, shaved heads, and non-stop undulations of the trio of dancers, The Sweet Things'.




Burkina Faso Lobi Country, Buur Xylophones
Brilliant, jacking, extended, improvisatory, ancient dance music played at the initiation of diviners (drugged with jolonthi, to ward off spells) on a twelve-blade xylophone with calabash resonators.




C.S. Crew Funky Pack
A late-70s Nigerian blend of Kool And The Gang, Mandrill, and the Ohio Players... with a Moog synthesizer thrown in for good measure.
