Theo Parrish, Burnt Friedman Meet Mancingelani And Zinja Hlungwani
TP's is an uglier-than-ugly edit, with no let-up for thirteen minutes, layered and shot with synth washes, bleeps and alarms, galloping drums, clattering percussion; Burnt's mix is more chilled, lithe, dubwise.



Penny Penny Shaka Bundu
No-shame housey Tsonga-disco and hands-in-the-air rave banged out on Korgs and Ataris in 1994 South Africa. It sold tons, rocking stadiums from Liberia and Sierra Leone to Namibia and Mozambique.

Secular Music From Uganda Uganda, 1950 And 1952
Likembe thumb-piano get-togethers, yodels and ekidongo harps, leg-rattles, vocal knees-ups, magwala horn groups, flutes, xylophones and drums.

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.



Shangaan Electro New Wave Dance Music From South Africa
An astounding compilation of the breakneck Shangaan dance output of the Nozinja studio in Soweto, recorded between 2006 and 2009.
