Blundetto
Cousin Zaka (Vol. I)

While recording Slow Dance, french folk artist Blundetto also recorded the tracks you'll find here on Cousin Zaka (Vol. I). In a bit of a throwback to his first album, Bad Bad Things, this was recorded with that same DIY mix of impulsiveness and creativity. Despite that Slow Dance manages to be cinematic and sweeping all the same.

The Heavenly Sweetness label get in there at the right time with their reissue of 1972’s Ethiopian Modern Instrumentals Hits.

The styles range from classic Ethio-jazz slinks (Astake’s ‘Metche Dershe’) to hard-bopping twelve-bar blues (Kidane’s ‘Yetesfa Tezeta’).

Ethiopian Modern Instrumental Hits

Before Bob Geldof and Midge Ure decided that the best way to help Ethiopians facing starvation in 1985 was by inflicting a badly-written, factually incorrect and borderline racist song on the world, Ethiopians were doing some fantastic musical pieces, untouched by European influences. Ethiopian Modern Instrumental Hits is out on vinyl.

Anthony Joseph
Caribbean Roots

British and Trinidadian singer, novelist and spoken-word artist Anthony Joseph is finally coming out and saying it: he’s got Caribbean Roots. As you might guess based on the title, this record is all about Caribbean rhythms and melodies - but never without freely formed lyrics and some crazy and equally free jazz.
