Trio Madjesi & Orchestre Sosoliso - Photo Madjesi

I think this may be the highlight of this year's finds, some supremely funky rumba from the Congo.  The influence of James Brown is clear and the addition of a keyboard sets Sosoliso's sound apart from many of the other rumba groups.  Check it out and I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

02 Moussa Photo Na Yo
03 Na Leli Mokili 1 & 2
04 Carte Blanche 1 & 2
05 Mama Tshika Ngai Malembi

Ustad Mahmud Mirza - Rag Darbari

This album of North Indian sitar music I picked up at today's boot sale is particularly mesmerising. If you click on the back sleeve you should see an enlarged image which allows you to read the very informative sleeve notes.  Or maybe you just want to immerse yourself in beautiful sound.

Caliente y Picante: Latin Heat from Snap Crackle and Pop

Here on the South Coast of England it has rained non-stop for days and days.  This has given me the perfect opportunity to delve into the now extensive Snap Crackle & Pop archive and put together this mix of Afro-Latin sounds.  These tropical rhythms sound wonderful under our leaden skies.
