Colomach
Collectors' Afro-rock from 1974, fusing traditional Sahel music with the style of raw, garage psych explored by the likes of Hedzoleh Soundz and Edzayawa. Limited 180g vinyl in rigid, paste-on sleeves.



Super Mama Djombo Festival
Fabulous dance music from Guinea Bissau, done full justice by Lisbon's Valentim de Carvalho studios in 1979. The title track sticks it to imperialism; the love-song Julia is a Djombo masterpiece.




Mark Ernestus Presents Jeri-Jeri Bamba
Rock-steady, slow-burning, hard funk, a kind of fatback Mbalax, in no mood to be messed with, with full vocal and instrumental versions; plus two vivid sketches, talking drums to the fore.



Mark Ernestus Presents Jeri-Jeri Casamance
A traditional Jola rhythm, with tuned, talking and kit drums swarming across scraps of guitar and the Mboups singing; then a more deeply dug-in, spaced-out funk, spun from a Serer rhythm. With full instrumentals.



Orchestre National De Mauritanie
Vintage regional highlife traditional instruments, swinging brass, funky flute, wah wah guitars the more precious for the national toll since of dictatorship, religious psychosis, and racism to the bone.



Larry Achiampong More Mogya
Same proudly autobiographical, beat-tape plunderphonics as Meh Mogya, this time with the sampling focussed more on palm-wine and other acoustic Ghanaian music. 'More Mogya', 'More Blood'.




Gyedu-Blay Ambolley Simigwa
Heavy Ghanaian funk and highlife from 1975, still revered there today by the Hip Life flag-bearers of the hip-hop nation (not to mention high-end record dealers).



Kiki Gyan 24 Hours In A Disco, 1978-82
Grooving Ghanaian boogie from the wizz keyboardist.



KG Band Disco Train
A reissue of the original Kiki Gyan LP from 1980.



Sekouba Bambino The Griot's Craft
From his teens the lead singer of the great Bembeya Jazz National here in more intimate, all-acoustic settings, spotlighting his voice and songs and those rolling, melancholic Guinean grooves.



Moreno Sister Pili
Classic, headlong Congolese dance album recorded in Nairobi in 1983 (plus a couple of 1977 extras) by the siver-throated, husky Moreno Batamba, mainstay of the Orchestra Virunga and Samba Mapalanga.



African Brothers Band (International) Tribute To D.K.
Fabulous, deep Ghanaian high-life from 1979. Profoundly rueful but politically resolute, in their trademark, hypnotic, minor-key manner, with sustained organ and CK Mann-style guitar.
