Western Jazz Band Songs Of Happiness, Poison And Ululation
Saboso from mid-seventies Dar Es Salaam. Complex, fluid guitars and congas; pithy songs.







Zanzibara 4: Bi Kidude
'Little Thing' began her singing career in the 1920s. This spans the last twenty years, with illustrious ensembles like the Culture Music Club and the Zanzibar Taarab All Stars.



Zanzibara 1: Ikhwani Safaa Musical Club
Swahili music from the eastern coast of Africa Lamu, Mombasa, Tanga, Dar es Salaam, Zanzibar and the Comoros. Archival in amongst contemporary recordings.



Zanzibara 2: 1965-1975, The Golden Years Of Mombasa Taarab
Spicy, deep, sensual Arab, Black and Asian styles, lipsmackingly mixed together in classic Taarab when electric guitars, bass guitars, organs and kit drums kicked orchestral instruments out of bed.




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.



Zanzibara 6: Mtendeni Maulid Ensemble
A form of Sufi music with its roots in the ancient Arab world, surviving only in Zanzibar: slowly building in intensity, with songs and poetry, and passages for dancing, featuring a wide range of percussion.




Zimbabwe Ndebele Songs
Three singers a cappella, or with rattle and djembe, emulate the beautiful sound of the insingizi rain bird. Traditional, gospel, warrior-chant and political songs.



Zimbabwe Ambuya Nyati
Judith Juma's wonderful mbira playing shona ritual music, with singing, drum and rattle.



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