APALA: Apala Groups in Nigeria 1967-70

Apala is the music of Nigeria’s Yourba people. Apala: Apala Groups in Nigeria 1967-70 is the first time a compilation of Apala music has been released outside of Nigeria. The music’s main characteristics are the hypnotic rhythms brought about by the powerful drumming, nasal singing and the Agdigbo, or thumb piano. Other African musical styles are more well known in the West such as Fuji, Highlife, Juju and Afrobeat, but Apala is regarded as more of a roots or neo-traditional form of music. On Soul Jazz.

Rodriguez
Coming From Reality

The story of American singer-songwriter Rodriguez has been much covered over the years particularly in the Searching for the Sugarman film. His debut Cold Fact is a stone cold (fact) classic but less is known about his second (and final album to date) Coming From Reality. It again pitches Rodriquez with Dennis Coffey and features further stream of consciousness type songs that reference Bob Dylan but has a sound all of its own.

Love Drums From The Ghetto by Malaku Daku is an afro-funk rarity. Malaku Daku, a percussionist from Philadelphia, uses the drums for deeper meaning. In the west, drums are just about music. In African society they mean much more - from the ritualistic to the spiritual to communication and passion. You can feel everything going on in these grooves.

Erlon Chaves
Procura-se uma Virgem

Despite dying in 1974 at the age of just 41, Erlon Chaves is still well-known in his native land for his work in TV and film scoring. Chaves brought elements of funk and samba to the world of library music, and these unusual elements set him apart from many of his contemporaries in the field. His score for 1971 soft-porn flick Procura-se uma Virgem is a perfect setting for his groovy, slightly louche brand of soundtrack work. Now reissued via Mad About Records.

Dali China is made up from recordings of Li Daiguo playing traditional stringed instruments pipa and zheng along with the cello which have then been mixed with field recordings and electronic sounds by Kink Gong. A fascinating mix of traditional and contemporary sounds.

Where his debut was a fun afrobeat and disco - inspired fusion, this 1980 self-titled album delves deeper into hypnotic grooves which have a much more raw and vital feel about them.

Confusingly the label is called 180g and the record is on 180g vinyl. Or maybe that's not confusing at all. What we have here are some far out contemporary groove from the far east from this multi instrumentalist and member of Kingdom Afrocks. The original edition came out on Jazzy Sport and amongst its fans were the guys from Lights in the Attic who were impressed by its afrobeat - leaning take on modern production. Get on it.

Atlas

Atlas by Tapan Meets Generation Talagalte sees a perhaps unlikely union of two bands from different parts of the world with quite different musical approaches. Tapan come from Belgrade and play a blend of industrial, techno and tribal music. Generation Taragalte are of the nomadic Tuareg people and play amped-up desert blues. Atlas, a one-off collaboration can only be described as a collision of droning, electronic jazz, and psychedelic guitar riffs. As former football commentator Barry Davies might say "Interesting, very interesting..."

Pour Me A Grog: The Funaná Revolt in 1990s Cabo Verde

'Pour Me A Grog' is a loving examination of funaná, a music based on the gaita (accordion) instrument originating in Cabo Verde in the second half of the 20th century. In the context of colonial rule, it was a heavily policed music, but in the 90s, when the islands held their first democratic elections, the scene’s leading lights were finally let loose in studios. This is a snapshot of that time.

The first ever vinyl re-issue of Disco Soccer, the 1979 album from Alhaji Sidiku Buari.

If you’re a fan of disco or boogie, Disco Soccer is a true lost gem of the late Seventies.

Betsayda Machado y la Parranda El Clavo
Loé Loá - Rural Recordings Under The Mango Tree

Loé Loá - Rural Recordings Under The Mango Tree was originally released in 2017. The title is meant to be taken literally - Betsayda Machado recorded this LP out in the open air of her hometown of El Clavo, Venezuela. The ‘Parranda’ of her backing band translates as ‘party’, and there’s certainly a spirit of movement and rhythm to these bustling drum instrumentals (a legacy, perhaps, of El Clavo's African heritage). However, there is also pain and worry to Loé Loá borne out of Venezuela’s difficult political situation. A powerful piece, Loé Loá is now set to wax for the first time courtesy of Olindo Records.

Gang 90 e as Absurdettes singer Taciana originally issued ‘Tudo Faz Sentido’ through !K7 back in 1995, and the track’s melting-pot club sound firmly timestamps it when heard today. This is a sleek mix of dub, deep house, samba and that sort of ‘Beautiful Stranger’-type chord progression that was happening in a lot of pop music back then. Original producer Suba serves up a psychedelic, slightly Balearic extended mix here too.

Alefa Madagascar - Salegy, Soukous & Soul 1974 - 1984

Throughout the recent glut of reissues and compilations that have focussed on African music from the 70’s and 80’s the country of Madagascar has been strangely absent. Strut Records finally set that right with Alefa Madagascar, a deluxe set that focuses on the salegy, soukous and soul sounds of the island nation. With radio bringing music from neighbouring nations like South Africa and Kenya, and the Discomad label championing the best local talent, the result was a musical style that has the propulsive grooves of other sub-Saharan pop styles while also adding in curious rhythmic and textural flourishes.

Daymé Arocena is a singer from Cuba. Her eponymous album lays down rumba rhythms which are then sprinkled with jazz. She is backed by a crack team of fellow Cuban musicians. She is influenced by legends of Cuban music such as La Lupe and Tito Puente. Recently she has collaborated with Dexter Story and Roberto Fonseca. Apparently, her live show is quite the thing to behold, so perhaps try and catch her in town sometime.

Yes, Ebo Taylor Jnr. is indeed the son of the legendary Ghanaian bandleader/guitarist/singer Ebo Taylor.

Manu Chao
Clandestino / Bloody Border

The reason that Manu Chao is now the poster-boy for ‘world music’ (we’ll not delve into the politics of that particular term here) is largely due to the success of his debut LP Clandestino. This record has sold a bajillion copies since its release in 1998 and continues to be beloved for its poppy mix of Latin guitar styles, reggae, multilingual lyrics and vaguely revolutionary invective. Personally this Norman Records™ writer is most grateful for this record because it paved the way for Robbie Williams’s truly mind-boggling cover of ‘Bongo Bong’ about a decade later. This new edition of Clandestino has been remastered and contains a trio of new songs - one of which is an updated version of the title-track.

Vanrock is a collaboration between Fortuna head honcho Kalbata with the five piece Afrodelic band Tigris. The result is six percussion-led tracks which distil the latter's Caribbean and African influences with the more techno and balearic sounds of the former. A fascinating meeting of minds and blending of genres which puts disparate influences together for something rather transcendental. Rock it in a van or any other vessel of your choosing.
