Zulu Stomp!! South Africa Garage Beats!!
Entertainingly hoarse, pimply and freaked-out garage punk and beat from mid-sixties South Africa, opportunistically entitled.




Next Stop... Soweto Volume 2
'Soultown, rhythm and blues, funk and psych sounds from the townships, 1960-75'.



Letta Mbulu Naturally
Afro-soul blends, the Sowetan exile alongside the Adderleys and a Crusader or two.




Madagascar Antanosy Country, Sarandra
Eastern vibes and high emotions in this singing, accompanied by the sosolu flute, rocking mandaly and jejo bory lutes, the atranatra xylophone-on-legs, the lokanga fiddle.



Namibia Ju'hoansi Bushmen
Instrumental music from the north: like the hunting bow, made from wild vine and the tendon of an antelope, struck with a stick or a porcupine spine. One end goes in the performer's mouth, which makes a resonator.



Madagascar Merina Country
Various songs and valiha zither, made from a bamboo trunk, the sodina flute, the angorodao accordion, the kabosy lute, and the amponga tany, a ground zither made of plant rope, wood, and dung.



Seychelles Forgotten Music Of The Islands
Popular song, often with bow accompaniment, sometimes mulumba (stuck in the mouth and scraped); and the jazzy mazurkas, waltzes and country-dance of kamtole, for string ensemble and bass drum.



Madagascar Antandroy Country
Puffing-and-blowing rimotsy singing for possession rituals and burials, a cappella polyphony with its image of blues and spirituals, erotic chin-shaking, solo marovany zither...



Zanzibara 5: Hot In Dar, Tanzania, 1978-83
Cream-of-the-crop, fabulous, firing dance music from Dar es-Salaam, rocking between shimmering, swinging guitars and delirious, riffing horns. Check the rest of the series, especially Volume 2.



Cazumbi African Sixties Garage Vol. 2
From the fuzzy garage of SA groups like The Gonks, to the raw beat of Ghana's Tall Emma, with wild representations from Cameroun, Madagascar and Mozambique, along the way. Fab.




Thomas Mapfumo Hokoyo!
HIs LP debut, released in 1976 at the height of the Rhodesian war incendiary chimurenga ('struggle') dance music, which transposed mbira rhythms to the guitar, and in its lyrics demanded revolutionary change.
