"Rezas Populares do Brasil, Anamak, Amkéa and Annazone, are vocal works. All the sounds on this disc originate with the Brazilian singer Anna Maria Kieffer. Two works, Anamak and Amkéa, have an "orchestral accompaniment", composed of tropical bird...

"Kurai is a Japanese word that corresponds to the adjective «dark», without «gothic» or other emotional references. In a certain sense, Kurai is the Yûgen’s «shadow», both because draws on some hints from it (directly from Labirinto d’acqua), and above...


This is by a string quintet (2 violins, viola, cello, bass) plus sax, trombone, drums and percussion.

"The long awaited first solo CD by world renowned (and cute - it's ok, from reading her website I can tell she doesn't mind that I am saying that) thereminist Pamelia Kurstin, who has been a rock star, rollerskater, party girl, classical virtuoso, jazz...

This album has some of Fela's most politicized lyrics and it also has a weird history, as it was released in several forms. This has 3 songs produced by Bill Laswell when he was hired by the label to 'popularize' Fela's sound and some typical 80s hired...

"There were three great beats in the 70 s: Fela Kuti s Afrobeat, James Brown s Funk, and Klaus Dinger's NEU!"-Brian Eno

This collection of 70s works by Fela and the great Africa 70, includes 3 long tracks totalling 45' and includes one of his...

This is not EVERY everything that Fela recorded, but it’s pretty damn close.
“The Complete Box Set contains 29 CDs and one DVD spanning Fela’s entire career from Koola Lobitos in the late 60’s to Underground System in 1992.
The box set also contains 'A Slice Of Fela’, a DVD documentary with live performances from Berlin Jazz festival and Glastonbury and a booklet."

"This meeting of the minds and bands of Afro-funk creator Fela Anikulapo-Kuti and American vibist and R&B/jazz innovator Roy Ayers is a collaboration that shouldn't work on the surface. Fela's music was raw, in your face politically and socially, and...

Seun is the son of Fela Kuti and the music he makes here, on his debut album, is hugely in the Fela tradition, even using Fela's amazingly great 1980s band Egypt 80. If you are a fan of classic Fela or great Afro-pop, Seun is a more than worthy son to...

Seun Kuti is Fela's youngest son and he also leads Fela's former band, Egypt 80.
This is a very good release of modern Nigerian Afropop in the Fela-style, but with its own twist, and with the (quite great) participation of Carlos Santana, who plays a wicked solo on a track.
Conditionally highly recommended!

"For their third album, Finnish quartet K-X-P – whose Twitter biog describes them as Original-Electronic-Motorhead-Space-Trance-Spiritual-Rock-Meditation-FreeJazz-Godz (!) – have decided to capture the raw energy of their live performances in the studio.
That description is not serious, of course, but neither is it far wrong, because their music is surprisingly adaptable, despite it not having an obvious melodic interest from first listen. Rather, it taps into a primal place of rhythm and percussion...

"K-X-P is a drums, bass and synth trio from Helsinki, Finland, born out of the fire and ashes of the seminal Op:l Bastards and The Lefthanded, both of which were led by Timo Kaukolampi. The band is comprised of Timo Kaukolampi (electronics, vocals)...

J.B. Lenoir was a bluesman who was active on recordings between 1954 and his premature death in 1967. He is perhaps best remembered for his songwriting, which feataured a wider range of topics than many of his contemporaries, often addressing political and racial issues of the time that are still relevant
