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.



Havana And Matanzas, Cuba Bata, Bembe, And Palo Songs From The Historic Recordings Of Lydia Cabrera And Jo
Songs and ceremonies of the Yoruba, Dahomean, and Kongo-Angolan religions, performed by Marcus Portillo Dominguez, Candido Martinez and others, recorded in Cuba in the late 1950s by Lydia Cabrera.




Tabou Combo Respect...
A Brooklyn-1973 brew of Compas carnivalesque Haitian party music and other Carib styles, mixed with funk, soul, psych. Treated guitars, ain't-no-stoppin' percussion.




Frankie Zhivago The Age Of Flying High
Lovely, exemplary Island Soul from 1976: a blend of soul, funk and reggae with Bahamian Junakoo and Goombay rhythms. Tasty funk backing from the Boris Gardner Happening expert in the floaters and ballads, too.




The Rhythms Of Black Peru
Marvellous selection of Afro-Peruvian music including giants like Nicomedes Santa Cruz, Chabuca Granda, and Zambo Cavero, with the cajon (wooden box drum) in full effect in lando, festejo and vals styles.



The Mighty Sparrow Doctor Bird
A career retrospective. Calypso and soca classics with a DVD of tributes and recent concert footage, but otherwise scantily presented.



Bahamas Goombay 1951-1959
Somewhere between rhythm and blues, Trinidadian calypso and Jamaican mento. The burgeoning revival of Blind Blake (and there's a Harold McNair, blimey.)



Michi Sarmiento Aqui Los Bravos! The Best of Michi Sarmiento Y Su Combo Brava 1967-77
Headlong, monster guagancos, descargas and cumbias, with pumping electric bass, Joe Arroyo at the mic, badarse metal percussion, tumbadora and timbales, trumpets, guitar, piano, Michi's sax and clarinet. Rough!
