The Pierced Heart And The Machete Olivia Wyatt
Vivid, unflinching film of two annual Haitian Vodou pilgrimages — for Ezili Danto, goddess of love, art and passion, and her old man Ogoun, god of war, iron, healing. Ecstatic, bloody, intensely musical.



Colombia Sixto Salgado And Los Gaitos De Punta Brava
Gaitas music, for flutes and alegre, llamador and tambora drums.



Martin Lopez Y Sus Estrellas Cocinando
Well-presented, hot Peruvian cook-up of the tropical styles carrying the swing at the turn of the 1960s, featuring names like Tito Chicoma and Melcochita. Martin (who formed Grupo Naranja) was fuzz during the day.



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.



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.



Alfonso Lovo La Gigantona
Consider it a Nicaraguan take on Herbie's Mwandishi — this psychedelic swirl of Latin jazz and pan-American funk, marrying Lovo's out guitarism with the fine percussion-work of Jose 'Chepito' Areas, from Santana.






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.




Remolino De Oro Coastal Cumbias from Colombia's Discos Fuentes 1961-73
Twelve more tear-up cumbias from this mighty label's treasure-rooms, handsomely sleeved.



Martinique Edmond Mondesir: Bele, Tradition And Creation
Bele is an African folk drumming and singing tradition running back to slavery days. Mondesir leading five singers, with two percussionists, on tambour and tibwa.
