Mark Ernestus Presents Jeri-Jeri Xale
A next-level three-tracker, intense and roiling, featuring a mesmeric six-minute instrumental, with Thierno Sarr grooving out on the top string of his bass, adding an elusive Manding flavour to the deep Mbalax mix.



Senegal Sufi Brotherhood Chant
Fervid vocal intensity from the venerable Tijaniyya and Muridiyya brotherhoods, singing hymns and poems to the glory of the Lord, live in concert.



Ebo Taylor Twer Nyame
Outstanding seventies Ghanaian LP, layering together lashings of calypso, highlife, funk and jazz. Side Two cooks. Limited reissue to superfly standards: 180g vinyl, Japanese sleeves.



Diabel Cissokho Kanabory Siyama
Irresistible kora-led Manding melodies, surging and hypnotic; original songs rooted in the musical traditions of Senegal and Mali.




Afro Funk Body Music
Rocking, fuzzed-out funk and afro-beat recorded by West Africans in London in 1975. Excellent.



Edzayawa Projection One
Moody, experimental, Ghanaian Afro-Rock recorded by these teenagers in 1973 for EMI Nigeria, after a run at Fela's Shrine.



Nguenang Wouck
Tear-up late-seventies afro-funk and soulful soukous from the Ivory Coast.




Guelewar Touki Ba Banjul: Acid Trip From Banjul To Dakar
Lip-smacking distillation of their four legendary LPs, from 1977-82. Real-deal Afro Manding: a Senegalese crossing of traditional and regional rhythms like boogaraboo and sawrouba with soul, funk and rock.



Lewlewal De Podor Yiilo Jaam
As featured on the terrific Ishilan n-Tenere compilation Pulaar guitar music from northern Senegal, ranging from acoustic bliss to edgier head-nodders. A co-production with the excellent Sahelsounds.



I Have My Liberty! Gospel Sounds From Accra, Ghana
Recent church recordings: distorted PAs, female lead singers, claps, tambourines, ramshackle guitars move the earth to get congregations on their feet. Crossing Opika Pende and Johnny L. Jones, says the label.



Bambara Mystic Soul The Raw Sound Of Burkina Faso
Afro-Funk mixed with traditional Islamic rhythms and Afro-Latin sounds spread by visiting Cuban ensembles and most of all the Mandingue melodies and guitar techniques of Mali and Guinea.
