Bando - Bando (CD, self-released, 2014)



Bando come from San Juan, and bring to the game a unique fusion of afrobeat, classic funk, folkloric afropuertorican rythms, boogalo, jazz and progressive rock, penning their own style as afrogressive. The Puerto Rican band collects on this self-titled first CD album all its singles released since the summer of 2013, announcing great things for what's gonna come out next… We had picked them for our 4th 'Tropical Grooves & Afrofunk International' compilation, 'Have You Ever Been To Electric Afroland?' and now the band has licensing this debut album - with redesign cover art and new tracks - on the Japanese indie label Barrio Gold Records/Music Camp Entertainment so you should hear more about Bando in 2015….

Vincent Ahehehinnou - Best Woman (LP, Analog Africa, 2017)

The latest Analog Africa reissue is up for pre-order on Bandcamp! The album, originally a 1978 release by Orchestre Poly Rythmo's singer Vincent Ahehehinnou, is rare-as-shit, worth nearly 4 figures if you can find a decent copy. There's only 4 tunes, two afrofunk monsters and two ballads, but...
