Sierra Leone Traditional Music
Fula flute and keronaru lutes, the wedding music of Karanko xylophone ensembles, Mandingo three-string harps and Christian hymns, the ceremonial music of Themne and Mende secret societies...




Staff Benda Bilili Tres Tres Fort
Cooking James Brown Congotronics style, featuring the brilliant teenager Roger Landu on his home-made one-off one-string satonge lute. (Check Youtube.) Championed by Massive Attack, amongst others.




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.



Sweet Talks The Kusum Beat
The second album by the Ghanaian superstars, from 1974, for a change mixing their hit-making high-life with traditional rhythms and folk touches, and a little funk and afrobeat.



Tal National Kaani
Terrific, headlong, dense, hypnotic guitar-music from Niamey, the capital of Niger, lashing together Tuareg blues, the Songhai of Malian griots, and Hausa percussion, amongst other influences.



Ebo Taylor Love And Death
New recordings by the Ghanaian legend.




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.



The World Is Shaking Cubanismo From The Congo, 1954-55
Fired-up, originary African pop, conjuring the Congolese rumba from imported Latin 78s with thumb pianos, kazoos, banjos, bottles, violins, and irresistible little songs about pimps, dope, clubbing, sex, death.



Togo Kabiye Orchestras And Lithophones
Highly rhythmic ensembles of percussion, flutes, whistles and trumpets from the mountainous north of the country; and brilliant pichanchalassi playing, five flat stones struck with two oval stones.



Tradi-Mods vs. Rockers Alternative Takes On Congotronics
Remixes, reworks, tributes and what have you, by a cast of thousands including Deerhoof, Shackleton, Animal Collective, Mark Ernestus, Juana Molina and Andrew Bird.



Victor Deme Victor Deme
Beatiful, lyrical and direct 'the classic sound of good-time West Africa', for Mojo.
