    ALEXIS ZOUMBAS

    Fire on the Bayou

    [engl] Violinist Alexis Zoumbas immigrated from the mountains of northern Greece to NYC in the 1910s, where he recorded with the great Marika Papagika before cutting his own instrumental sessions with small string ensembles. Zoumbas had the rare gift of expressing emotion so clearly and urgently through his instrument, and his violin feels like an extension of his heart, soul, and the deep musical history of his faraway home in Epirus. Zoumbas' original recordings were recently uncovered in pristine condition and have been restored in astonishingly clear and present sound quality. This new compilation features previously unissued takes and stunning solo improvisations. LP and digital versions include an 8 page booklet with extensive biographical notes, and is co-released by Orpheum Phonograph, Olvido Records, and Mississippi Records.

    ANGKHANANG KHUNCHAI

    Never Forget Me

    [engl] "Never Forget Me" is the second release on EM Records from Angkhanang Khunchai, one of the greatest Thai singers; the original 1979 vinyl release, now extremely rare, was a collection of her self-produced songs, backed by her own band. This radically independent stance, though admirable, caused the album to languish in relative obscurity, due to her lack of support from the business masters of the Thai music scene of the time. "Never Forget Me" is a plea to her fans, and although the original album was not widely distributed, the high quality of the songs ensured that she was indeed not forgotten. Her first album, which was produced by Surin Phaksiri, was the very first of the new molam-luk thung style; the songs here continue in that vein, a mix of modern luk thung Isan and various types of molam, backed here by her hand-picked ensemble, which later disbanded due to financial pressures. Despite these struggles, "Never Forget Me" lives on, its killer tunes loved by DJs and given a 5-star rating by psych record guru Hans Pokora. Available now on vinyl and CD, with English lyrics and liner notes, this is unforgettable.

    ASSOUF, KEL

    Black Tenere

    Eine Musik auf Reisen. Moderner Tuareg-Rock mit westlichen Klangelementen. Nach ihrem gefeierten Album "Tikounen" kehren Kel Assouf mit einer weiteren, ungemein bestechenden Version ihres Tuareg-Rocks zurück: "Black Tenere". Das Album wurde von dem Keyboarder Sofyann Ben Youssef, zugleich Mastermind der hochgelobten Formation Ammar 808, produziert. Bei seiner Tätigkeit brachte er das Power-Trio-dazu, sich ganz auf die knisternde Energie des nigerianischen Frontmannes Anana Ag Haroun einzulassen. Mit seinem markanten Panamahut und der archetypischsten aller Rock'n'Roll-Gitarren, der Gibson Flying V, strahlt er pure Kraft aus. Kel Assoufs musikalische Reise flossnahtlos von der Quelle der Ishumar-Wüstenrock-Pioniere Tinariwen - die Haroun erstmals als junger Musiker in Niger kennenlernte - zu klanglichen Horizonten,die den Rock-Klassizismus von Gruppen wie Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath und Queens of the Stone Age sowie die Club-Beats und das astrale Ambiente der europäischen elektronischen Musik umfassen. Auf "Black Tenere" treibt die Band diese unterschiedlichen Texturen und Einflüsse zu einem überzeugenden, rauen Crescendo voran. "Mein musikalischer Geschmack hat sich nicht geändert, aber erwächst weiter, dank meiner verschiedenen Begegnungen und meiner Neugierde", so Haroun. "Für mich muss die Musik reisen und für andere Klänge offen sein, damit jeder die Botschaften hören kann, die sie trägt."

    BABA ZULA

    XX

    Baba Zula ist eine Istanbuler, von Levent Akman und Murat Ertel gegründete Formation, die Rock mit orientalischer Musik kombiniert und das Ganze "Oriental Dub" nennt. Spätestens seit Fatih Akins preisgekrönter Dokumentation "Crossing The Bridge" aus dem Jahr 2005 gilt Baba Zula auch in Westeuropa als progressiver Vertreter der türkischen Musikkultur. Zum Popularitätsschub im Ausland trugen darüber hinaus die Konzerte von Baba Zula bei, die in einer Art von Performance Musik, Poesie, Theater, Malerei, Videokunst, Bauchtanz und traditionelle Kostüme zu einem audiovisuellen Gesamterlebnis vereinen. 2016 feierte die Band 20-jähriges Jubiläum. Aus diesem Anlass bringt das Label Glitterbeat das Doppelalbum "XX" heraus. Dieses spannt einen kaleidoskopischen Bogen über sechs Studioalben. Allerdings handelt es sich bei "XX" nicht um eine schnöde Best-of-Kompilation, wie der Bandgründer, Sänger und Saz-Spieler Murat Ertel betont: "None of the pieces here are in their original forms. Instead, we picked remixes, re-recordings, collaborations, live tracks, all the possibilities, but none of these have been released before. And it_ÇÖs a mix of recording techniques - digital, analogue, tape, mp3."

    BANYEN RAKKAEN

    Lam Phloen World-class: The Essential Banyen Rakkaen

    [engl] An exciting collection from pioneering Thai molam idol Banyen Rakkaen, featuring her most thrilling performances from the early to mid-70s, with innovative genre-bending arrangements and production from Thepphabut Satirodchomphu. These tracks, all originally released on 7-inch vinyl, showcase her powerful yet alluring voice, revolutionary yet rooted in tradition. Her exciting performance style was revolutionary and shocked traditionalists, but none could dispute the fact that she was a truly gifted singer, and Theppabut’s visionary production skills added to the feeling of freshness and vitality. The early 1970s saw a growing demand in Thailand for exciting and danceable music, and the recordings compiled in this release filled that demand perfectly. Banyen was one of the great singers of that era who propelled Isan music to nationwide popularity. A true star who in 2013 was designated a living national treasure, Banyen stole hearts with these hard-driving hits, while inspiring a new generation of aspiring singers. Banyen will now steal your heart -- on CD or 12-inch vinyl. Cover art: Shinsuke Takagi

    BENIS CLETIN

    Alpha & Omega

    [engl] In the mid eighties FM radio stations took over the airwaves in Nigeria. They wanted fresh new styles to play andin creasingly radio personalities like Bisi Olatilo, Ruime Effetie and Shea Martins were turning to reggae. Nigeria’s Freak Father Number One, Benis Cletin, saw the writing on the wall and created his deeply philosophical roots reggae opus, ‘Alpha & Omega’. Benis delivered a set of songs that tapped unashamedly into reggae’s message of peace and love. The title track is a philosophical opus on the state of the world and how to live in it. ‘Unqualified’ warns against letting others tell you how to live. ‘Guns for Freedom’ is more militant call to arms, undercut by a lilting flute line from the legendary Eji Oyewole. Benis didn’t completely abandon his freaky, funky roots. ‘Soul Fever’ is a slab of synth-driven boogie and ‘Get Up And Dance’ is pure funk with that typical Benis freak edge. But overall, ‘Alhpa and Omega’ is designed to soothe the minds of the oppressed in this unjust world - an African roots reggae classic that sounded great on FM radio.

    BIBI AHMED

    Adghah

    Bibi Ahmed, Kopf und Bandleader von Group Inerane, stammt aus Agadez (Niger), eine der unbändigsten, unbeständigsten und gefährlichsten Gegenden dieser Erde. Früh wurde Bibi mit der Unterdrückung und Ausgrenzung der Tuareg durch die nationalen Regierungen von Mali und Niger konfrontiert. Ebenso früh erwachte seine Liebe zur Musik. Als Kind brachte sich Bibi Ahmed das Gitarre spielen selbst bei, bevor er seine Ausbildung von dem großen Meister und Vater des Tuareg-Blues, Abdallah Ag Oumbadougou, erhielt. Geprägt durch die Erlebnisse in den lybischen Flüchlingscamps während des Tuareg Aufstandes, verlieh Bibi Ahmed, während viele andere Künstler das Land in Richtung Amerika und Europa verließen, mit seiner Band Group Inerane der Rebellion eine eigene, musikalische Stimme und öffnete gleichzeitig die reiche Tradition der Tamachek-Gitarrensänge einer neue Generation Zuhörern. In Zusammenarbeit mit Sounds of Subterrania und den Lotte Lindenberg Studio entstand Februar 2019 sein erstes Soloalbum, bei welchem er alle Instrumente selbst einspielte. Diese Reduktion eröffnen einen völlig neuen Blick auf diesen sehr spezielle Mix aus Tuareg Blues, elektrifizierte Tamachek Folk und Psychedelic Sahara-Rock. Man spürt förmlich das Flirren der Hitze und begibt man sich auf den Pfad des Hörens , verschwimmen die Unterschiede zwischen spirituellen Trance und hypnotischem Psychedelic-Blues.

    BIXIGA 70

    Quebra Cabeça

    Die kulturelle Verbindung zwischen Brasilien und Westafrika ist eng. Entsprechend pulsiert sie auch durch "Quebra Cabeça" (dt.: Puzzle), dem vierten Album des Instrumentalkollektivs Bixiga 70 aus Sao Paulo. Deren zehn Mitglieder amalgamieren unterschiedliche Einflüsse wie Jazz, Reggae oder die afrobrasilianische Religion Candomblé zu einem fließenden Ganzen. "The whole idea of the band has been to take all these different elements that form us, from Africa and Brazil, and create a hybrid from them", erklärt der Baritonsaxofonist und Flötist Cuca Ferreira. Gegenüber den drei Vorgängern fällt "Quebra Cabeça" deutlich komplexer aus. Die kraftvoll-coolen Kompositionen sind ausgereifter, jeder Song besitzt verschiedene Parts mit Drehungen und Wendungen sowie wechselnden Melodien und kurvenreichen Rhythmen. "They can seem like a journey", vergleicht Ferreira. Abgerundet wird das Ganze durch melodische Bläsersätze. Die neue Herangehensweise entwickelte sich aus dem gnadenlos langen Tourplan der letzten Jahre. Bei ihren Auftritten traf die Formation auf Musiker wie den ghanaischen Highlife-Sänger Pat Thomas, den nigerianischen Saxofonisten Orlando Julius oder den berühmten Bossa-Nova-Pianisten Joao Donato. Sie alle beeinflussten den Sound von Bixiga 70.

    BOMBINO

    Agamgam 2004

    Das Album des nigrischen Gitarristen und Sängers erschien 2004 und war bis dato nur digital erhältlich. Seitdem hat sich allerhand für Bombino getan, vorläufiger Höhepunkt war 2013 das von Dan Auerbach (Black Keys) produzierte Album "Nomad", das Bombino über Weltmusikkreise hinaus bekannt machte. Zu dem in Nashville aufgenommenen "Nomad" ist "Agamgam 2004" ein wunderschöner Kontrast: Tuareg-Musik in ihrer reinsten und ursprünglichsten Form. Die zehn Tracks entstanden mit Freunden am Lagerfeuer in der Ténéré-Wüste. Neben eigenen Kompositionen verneigt sich Bombino vor anderen Tuareg-Künstlern wie Abdallah Oumbadougou und Hasso Kedou. Das 180-Gramm-Vinyl ist remastert und erscheint im Klappcover.

    BRAHIM, AZIZA

    Abbar el Hamada

    Aziza Brahim wurde 1976 in einem Flüchtlingscamp in der algerischen Wüste geboren. Seit zwei Jahrzehnten lebt sie im Exil, erst auf Kuba, jetzt in Barcelona. Brahims Leben und Musik ist exemplarisch für die Tragödien und Hoffnungen der heutigen Migranten und Flüchtlinge. In einer Zeit, in der die Grenzen in Europa und darüber hinaus wieder vermauert werden, wirken ihre leidenschaftlichen Songs wie mit poetischem Trotz befeuert - und damit sehr aktuell. Brahims Vorgängeralbum "Soutak" wirkte schon mit großen Schritten darauf hin, ihre Botschaft der Befreiung und des Widerstands zu verbreiten. Das Album führte drei Monate lang die World Music Charts Europe an und nahm dort auch Platz 1 der Jahrescharts 2014 ein. Während auf "Soutak" der musikalische Einfluss ihres Wohnorts Barcelona klar erkennbar war, wurde er auf "Abbar el Hamada" mit Sounds aus Westafrika erweitert. Mit von der Partie sind der senegalesische Perkussionist Sengane Ngom, der Schlagzeuger Aleix Tobias, Guillem Aguilar am Bass und die Gitarristen Kalilou Sangare und Ignasi Cussó. Vom pulsierenden Wüstenrock des Songs "Calles de Dajla" zu den afrokubanischen Anklängen von "La Cordillera Negra", von der düsteren Eleganz in "El Canto Del La Arena" bis zur rauen Ballade "Mani" reflektiert "Abbar el Hamada" immer die rastlose Suche nach Heimat.

    BRAHIM, AZIZA

    Soutak

    Seit Jahrzehnten kämpfen die Bewohner der Westsahara für einen unabhängigen Staat. Eine der schönsten Stimmen dieser Befreiungsbewegung ist Aziza Brahim. Die 1976 in einem Flüchtlingscamp geborene Sängerin veröffentlichte 2008 ihre erste EP, auf der sie traditionelle afrikanische Musik mit Blues und Rock mischte. 2012 erschien das Debütalbum "Mabruk", für den spanischen Film "Wilaya" schrieb sie den Soundtrack und agierte auch vor der Kamera. Der Titel ihres zweiten Albums "Soutak" bedeutet so viel wie "deine Stimme" und feiert die Möglichkeit, die eigene persönliche Stimme zu erheben - im Gegensatz zu ihrem Volk, den von Marokko unterdrückten Sahrauis. Musikalisch orientiert sich Brahim in Richtung Mali, eines Landes, das sie schon immer fasziniert hat, aber auch an den vielen Rhythmen der sahrauischen Musik, der Haul, die dem Desert-Blues als Inspirationsquelle dienten. Das Ganze bereichert sie mit Congas, E-Bass und ihrem Willen, einen möglichst eklektischen Sound zu generieren.

    CHACALON Y LA NUEVA CREMA

    Chacalon y la Nueva Crema

    [engl] Lorenzo Palacios Quispe "Chacalón" is a myth. More than a musical star, he is both a religious and secular phenomenon for the masses. Every year on his birthday, his tomb becomes a place of fevered pilgrimage where devotees pray, make wishes and ask for miracles, all done over songs, cases of beer, dancing and toasting. In Peru, his figure and music erases the distance between the holy and the profane, the hero and the lumpen. Chacalón is, for many Peruvians, the people’s angel, the messiah of the poor, the marginalized ’Inkarri’. "When Chacalón sings, the hills come down", was one of his favorite phrases and with it he referred to the migrant masses that invaded the hills and beaches that surround Lima like a "ring of fire" (José María Arguedas dixit). It was the early 80s and while bombs and a dirty war exploded in the Andes, in Lima, the new and ever–growing population of migrants "climbed down" from their precarious homes and filled venues to dance "chicha" music and to celebrate who they saw as their redeemer. Despite being a model messianic figure, Lorenzo Palacios had very humble origins. The son of a music dancer from Huancayo and a singer of huayno music (Andean folk) from Ayacucho, Chacalon was born in Lima in 1950. As a teen, he had his debut on stage as the singer of huayno band "The Indios Quechuas". The main requirement to sing that genre of music was to have a powerful ribcage and young Lorenzo seemed to have the needed lung capacity for "guapeos", thunderous voice blows that the genre required. Chicha music is neither a replica or a copy, despite using Western instruments, such as the electric guitar, bass, drums and organs, and mixing them with cymbals, congas and tropical Guiros. Chicha music has indomestizo elements (like Huayno music) tucked deep in his blood. Listen to the powerful cries of Chacalon and you will hear the heartfelt music of Huancayo; listen to his delicate voice breaks and you will hear the sweet music of Ayacucho. The mix of delicacy and strength and rural and cosmopolitan elements, is part of the secret of seduction that chicha music has had over the masses. Aside from use of electric instruments, rock music has influenced chicha music in other ways. Chacalón’s band was called New Cream as a tribute to the British band Cream. Their use of powerful fuzz tones and wah wah pedals for acid riffs and catchy solos, are the echoes of a rebellious music that wanted to silence the noises of a marginalized and exploitative city atmosphere debased by the most savage capitalism. "I seek a new life in this city / where everything is money and there is evil, " reads "Provinciano", Chacalon’s most famous songs. It’s because lyrics like these that people saw Chacalón as a messianic figure who sang about the promise of a new life. He sang about pain, alcohol and betrayal, but also about solidarity, love and hope. Chacalon sang to the most marginalized part of society, the lumpenproletariat, and not the middle class or the wealthy. Lorenzo Palacios did not see differences between those who complied with the law or those who transgressed it, because in marginality, survival is the only rule and the boundaries between good and evil become very subtle. "Eat first, then morals, " said Chacalon.

    CHACALON Y LA NUEVA CREMA

    Grandes Éxitos 1976-1981

    [engl] This compilation originally appeared in 1982 under the title of “Éxitos, éxitos, éxitos”. It gathered some of the first recordings by Chacalón y La Nueva Crema that were released on 7-inch records between 1977 and 1981. These twelve themes were written during the years of the de facto government of Francisco Morales Bermúdez. This dictatorship led Peru to an institutional and economic crisis that also affected major record labels, which opted to publish foreign musicians to insure sales. Although Chacalon’s career experienced highs and lows after the release of this album, his intimate relationship with his audience remained, carried to levels as extreme as the ones he told Caretas magazine in July 1983: "Once we were playing at a venue on Mexico Avenue, I was singing a song called “Llanto de un niño”, about a boy who was born in poverty, he has to leave his small town with his family. On the coast his father becomes a fisherman and dies, the son wants to send a letter to heaven. While I was singing, a guy who was there, at the front, pulled a switchblade and cut open his veins. He saved himself and then told me later that he had suffered a lot like the child in the song. Yes, the man had been drinking.”

    CHIWESHE, STELLA

    Kasahwa: Early Singles

    Stella Rambisai Chiweshe wurde 1946 in der britischen Kolonie Südrhodesien, dem heutigen Simbabwe, geboren. Sie ist die bekannteste Musikerin ihres Landes und gilt international als die "Queen of Mbila". Mbila ist eine im südlichen Afrika verbreitete Bezeichnung für unterschiedliche Xylophone und Lamellophone. Chiweshe spielt eine Lamellophon-Variante, die von den Zezuru, einer zu den Shona gehörenden Volksgruppe, "mbira dza vadzimu" genannt wird und 22 bis 28 Eisenlamellen in zwei Reihen hat. Chiweshe ist eine der wenigen Frauen, die dieses traditionell Männern vorbehaltene Instrument beherrscht. Obwohl im ersten Befreiungskrieg die britische Kolonialmacht alle kulturellen Aktivitäten verbot, die Kirche die Mbira zum Teufelswerk erklärte und sich Männer weigerten, ihr das Mbira-Spiel zu vermitteln oder überhaupt nur ein Lamellophon zu bauen, lernte Chiweshe zwischen 1966-69 das Instrument und nahm Anfang der 1970er an illegalen Heilungszeremonien teil, bei denen sie Mbira spielte. Nach der formalen Unabhängigkeit 1974 war es ihr möglich, erste Aufnahmen zu machen; gleich ihre Debüt-Single "Kasahwa" erreichte Goldstatus. Die vorliegende Kompilation enthält neben dem Erstling sieben weitere Stücke, die in den folgenden Jahren bis 1983 in Afrika veröffentlicht wurden.

They all have an inexplicable passion for a musical genre that some could consider obsolete, outdated and antique: the French ‘valse musette’ (a kind of popular swing waltz music, ndlt). But let’s be clear, this has nothing in common with the smutty chords of popular balls and singalongs in little town halls, nor with the trills of another generation linked to names like Horner or Verchuren in afternoon tea dances. No, this is ‘bal musette’ with balls, genuine, virile, authentic, and athletic, which used to get the blokes and the birds jivingin the no-man’s land of demolished forts around what the Parisians call Paname. Seen like that it is easy to imagine that the Primitifs du Futur, for that is their name, enjoy carefully recreating in minute detail museum pieces from the pungent remains of past festivals. It is more than that. Because though these noble savages like rummaging around in 1920s Paris, they don’t shy away from including rhythms from all over the planet, rhumba from Zaireto, gypsy jazz, Hindu waltzes or Argentine tango, blues, ‘paso doble’ or ‘chanson réaliste’. It all began in 1986, when Dominique Cravic, ‘’ukukeke’’ champion and a renowned guitarist who learned from jazzmen like Lee Konitz or Larry Coryell and also played with Georges Moustaki and Henri Salvador, met a certain Robert Crumb. Yes, the legendary comic book author from the great days of the US psychedelic underground in the 70s, the creator of Fritz the Cat and Mr Natural in person, the same man who also created the cover for ‘’Cheap Thrills’’ by Janis Joplin. Crumb plays banjo and mandolin, collects 78 sof blues, jazz and… musette. The two cronies then composed their own made-to-measure orchestra, alongside many famous names including accordionist Daniel Colin, clarinettist Bertrand Auger, saxophonist Daniel Huck, bassist Jean-Philippe Viret or singer Claire Elzière (sorry, it’s impossible to name them all). This great group has recorded four albums since 1986 (all with sleeves drawn by Crumb), some including guest stars such as Pierre Barouh, Jean-Jacques Milteau, AllainLeprest, Sanseverino or Olivia Ruiz. For thirty years, the Primitifs du Futur have carried the torch of musette to the four corners of the earth, from fiestas to festivals, and today release a double vinyl, entitled ‘Résumé des épisodes précédents’ which brings together the best of their adventures. It is a refreshing and heartening cocktail of ‘’world tribal musette’’, as they call it, which, in these electro digital times, has a rejuvenating effect, amagic swing potion. Les Primitifs du Futur take us back to the future. ‘’THE PRIMITIFS DU FUTUR travel on sound waves back in time to the early twentieth century and make the world seem like a far better place than it ever actually was. I cant get the band's music off my turntable or out of my head. Accordion, mandolin, harmonica, saxophone, musical saw, and beautiful haunting melodies—what’s not to love? Even their sad songs make me happy.’’ Art Spiegelman. • 2xLP with 20 page booklet with all Crumb previous artworks for the band’s albums plus unseen photos 1500 copies - No Repress

    DAO BANDON

    Kon Kee Lang Kwai (Man on a Water Buffalo)

    [engl] For reasons unknowable, certain places in certain eras become hotbeds of music, fertile in their growth and flowering of musical talent. Thailand in the 1970s was such a place, and Dao Bandon is one of the enduring greats of that era. Born in the farm country of the Isan region, Bandon came from a poor family and was a monk during his teens, two great influences which shaped him, with his farm roots grounding the earthy heart of his lyrics, and his years of monastic chanting lending a unique resonance to his singing. After an apprenticeship with some of the greats of Thai music, Dao Bandon began to enjoy success leading his own band. The songs here, released in the 1970s, showcase the infectiously joyful Bandon groove, his mellifluous voice, and his captivating melodic sense. His lyrics deal with sex, love, marijuana, and the struggles of the poor, but no matter what he sings about, a sense of good cheer is always evident. Featuring parallel translations of the lyrics, in-depth liner notes, rare photos and of course great music, "Man on a Water Buffalo" is yet another example of Thai excellence from EM Records.

    DIABATE, TOUMANI & DIABATE, SIDIKI

    Toumani & Sidiki

    "Toumani & Sidiki" ist eine überwältigende Unterhaltung - zwischen Vater und Sohn, Vergangenheit und Zukunft, Kraft und der Kunst der Selbstbeschränkung - dirigiert von der Kora, der 21-saitigen westafrikanischen Harfe, die die Diabaté-Dynastie zu einem der bedeutendsten afrikanischen Instrumente gemacht hat. Vater-Sohn-Kooperationen sind selten genug, die Verbindung zwischen Toumani und Sidiki Diabaté ist besonders eng. Was nicht nur an der jahrhundertelangen Familientradition der Griot-Sänger liegt, der die beiden vorstehen. Der englische "Guardian" lobte dieses Album sogleich als "Toumanis beste Kooperation seit seiner Zusammenarbeit mit Ali Farka Touré" und das "Mojo" empfahl, sich einfach zu entscheiden, ob man seinen Ohren trauen möchte oder nicht. Der zweifache Grammy-Gewinner Toumani Diabaté gilt spätestens seit seiner Kooperation mit dem Gitarristen Ali Farka Touré als einer der bedeutendsten Musiker Westafrikas, Damon Albarn nannte ihn den "weltbestern Koraspieler".

    DOMINGO CURA

    Tiempo De Percusion : An Anthology, 1971-77

    [engl] Despite tremendous political upheaval, Argentina in the 1960s and 1970s witnessed a remarkable musical flowering in which traditional "Folklore" styles were embraced and updated by a new generation of musicians who fused traditional Argentine rhythms and musical forms with elements of rock, soul, funk and jazz. Percussionist Domingo Cura was at the the center of these exciting musical developments. Born in 1947 in Santiago del Estero province in northern Argentina, he moved to Buenos Aires at the age of 18 where he joined the band of harmonicist Victor Hugo Diaz. In the 1960s Cura became the rhythmic heart of much Argentine music, playing with Ariel Ramirez, Mercedes Sosa, Astor Piazolla and Gato Barbieri. Cura also worked closely with Eduardo Lagos, playing on every track of Lagos's 1969 debut album "Asi Nos Gusra", a landmark of the modern Argentine Folklore sound. This release is a compilation of the finest moments from Domingo Cura's four solo albums released during the period 1971 to 1977, featuring Cura's propulsive mastery of the traditional Bombo drum as well as other percussion instruments. The music ranges from dj-friendly percussion workouts to piano-dappled rhythmic fantasias, Afro-Latin sax grooves to pieces with a more typically "South American" feel, featuring guitars and flutes. But it all coheres, driven along by Cura's percussive vision, magnificently displayed on the opening track "Percusion", a groundbreaking multi-track groove monster. For all percussion lovers and fans of world music. Featuring a lovely collage cover by Finnish musician and artist Jonna Karanka (a.k.a Kuupuu).

    FANFARE CIOCARLIA & RASO, ADRIAN

    Devil's Tale

    Der Teufel lauert gern an Wegkreuzungen, um ahnungslosen Reisenden Seele und Unschuld abzuluchsen. Doch nicht immer birgt so ein Deal Tod und Verderben. Der musikalische Pakt des kanadischen Gitarrenmeisters Adrian Raso und der rumänischen Blechblaslegende Fanfare Ciocarlia riecht eher nach Genialität als nach Verdammnis. Auf dem Album "Devil’s Tale" kreuzen sich die Wege von wilder Blasmusik und kunstvollem Gitarrenspiel im Stile des Jazz Manouche. Das zwölfköpfige Blechblasorchester hat im Laufe seiner Weltkarriere unzählige Konzerthallen zum Kochen gebracht. Adrian Raso ist ein begnadeter Gitarrist und Vertreter des Gypsy-Jazz à la Django Reinhardt - letzterer wird auch von der Fanfare verehrt. Gemeinsam traf man sich in Toronto, im Studio mit dabei waren noch John Jorgenson und Rodrigo (Rodrigo & Gabriela) sowie Rockschlagzeuger Kevin Figueiredo (Extreme). Wir hören einen wilden Ritt von New Orleans über den Atlantik nach Paris, weiter über den Balkan und durch Detroit zurück nach Toronto. Und dem Charme von "Devil’s Tale" wäre selbst Mephisto erlegen!

    GEBRU, TSEGE MARIAM

    s/t

    [engl] One of our favorite Mississippi releases yet -- the transcendent piano of the classically trained Ethiopian nun Emahoy Mariam-Tsegue Guebrou (Gebru). This is the second LP in our ongoing series of releases of Emahoy Guebrou's back catalog -- all tracks that are nearly impossible to find on vinyl. More 1960s recordings of her unique solo piano performances -- somewhere between Erik Satie, Debussy, liturgical music of the Coptic Ethiopian Church, Ethiopian traditional music, and a touch of the divine. A spiritual salve for troubled times. Old-school tip on jacket with gold foil.

    GEBRU, TSEGE MARIAM

    Spielt Eigene Kompositionen

    [engl] A most unusual & stunning album. Tsege Mariam Gebru is an Ethiopian nun who has dedicated her life to helping others. She has been composing & playing music on the piano since the 1960’s. Her music is a unique mix of Western classical music in the vein of Erik Satie, Ethiopian music & Religious Christian meditation music. On this reissue of her first LP, originally released in Germany in a very small pressing, we find Tsege Mariam Gebru playing her own compositions solo on piano. She plays with restrained grace & purity. The record invites repeated listening well and is filled with spiritual warmth. We are very proud to present this LP – the first in a series of records we will be releasing with music culled from the monumental Ethiopiques CD series. We firmly believe that she is among the very greatest piano players and composers of all time.

    HAMA

    Houmeissa

    [engl] Nigerian composer Hama presents a groundbreaking album of traditional electronic desert folk songs, hovering somewhere between early 90s techno and synthwave. Nomadic herding ballads, ancient caravan songs, and ceremonial wedding chants are all re-imagined into pieces seemingly lifted from a Saharan 1980s sci-fi soundtrack or score to a Tuareg video game. With a deep love and respect, Hama effortlessly takes back and re-appropriates fourth-world ethnoambient music.
