LITTLE AXE RECORDS

The landmark 1958 debut of this revered Haitian troubadour. Voice, maracas, guitar... a bluesy kind of folk music just a short hop from calypso. Beautifully simple, rooted, intimate, full of feeling.



The Afro Sound Of Colombia Volume 1
Going on three hours of firing salsa, cumbia, boogaloo, tropical funk and chicha, from the dazzling catalogue of Discos Fuentes. As a selection, mind, a bit zany and Route One.



Belenou Chimen Ta La
Traditional bele from Martinique — warmly organic and rootsy, body-rocking, communal and defiant, with flavours of grounation, calypso, jazz, Latin, compas, zouk and West African dance.



Blind Blake Bahamian Songs
Not the great ragtime guitarist, but Alphonso Higgs and his 1950s calypsos, charming and vivacious, including the blueprint of Sloop John B. A dozen now on Moi J'Connais vinyl, in a beautiful silkscreened sleeve.



Leslie Butler We've Only Just Begun
Soul jazz from the jazz pianist plus trio. The first half's a bit soft, before Aquarius marks the dawning of the funky stuff — Evil Ways, Shaft, Booty Butt — ending with a cooking cover of The Meters' Funky Miracle...




Rupert Clemendore Le Jazz Primitif From Trinidad
Precious Emory Cook recordings from 1961: Clemendore playing drums, percussion and vibes in jazz, calypso, r'n'b and Latin settings; bassist John Buddy Williams leading a more
straight-up calypso set.



Cult Cargo Grand Bahama Goombay
Seventies Caribbean soul and funk — one ear tuned in to nearby Miami, with reggae and jazz in the mix too — from Frank Penn's Freeport operation.



Cumbia Beat Volume 1
'Experimental Guitar Driven Tropical Sounds From Peru, 1960-1976.'




Los Destellos Constelacion
Classic but questing Peruvian cumbia from Enrique Delgado's outfit, originally released in 1971. Twisting, glittering party music, steeped in surf, psych and Latin American roots.



El Gran Fellove Mango Mangue
Drummer, singer and showman, veteran of the Cuban Jam Session LPs, Francisco Valdes moved to Mexico City in 1955. His guarachera and chuachua scatting mixes up ska and mambo, Cuban, Mexican and Puerto Rican styles.



Gozalo! Bugalu Tropical Vol. 3
Torrid Peruvian boogaloo, guaracha and other sixties styles, jacked up by a sense of world-wide political change — in musical tradition, the bridge between mambo and salsa.

Gozalo! Bugalu Tropical Vol.4
Further excavations amidst the tropical Peruvian music of the 1960s, careering between the mambo era just over, and the salsa and cumbia upheaval to come.



Henri Guedon Cosmozouk
Dazzling, expansive, Latin-Caribbean brilliance from 1974 by the Martiniquan percussionist — check molten descarga Vulcano and jazzy guaganco Negro Lucumi — revived on 180g vinyl in made-in-Japan sleeves.



Las Malas Amistades Maleza
‘The bad influences’, from Bogota, with their third album for us: twenty-eight gorgeous variations of saudade, in a warmly acoustic, post-punk take on Tropicalismo — impromptu, snapshot and sublime.
