There has been an amazing amount of new World Music releases on LP over the last three months. It has become so overwhelming that I thought I’d better call attention to it. Whether you like reissues of obscure World Music albums, hits collections, compilations, or new music, we have plenty of recent arrivals for your turntable. Not only do we have lots of new releases, but at the Hollywood store we have plenty of used LPs and two rows of collector LPs on the wall just above the Country/Bluegrass section. Listed below are some of my favorite new releases, broken down by geographical regions.
La Grande Cantatrice Malienne Vol 3 (plus download) - Na Hawa Doumbia
Danger - Lijadu Sisters
Wake Up Your Mind - Joni Haastrup
Give The Beggar A Chance & Dawn Of Awareness - Monomono
Jealousy/ No Discrimination / No Accommodation For Lagos / Progress - Tony Allen
Bambara Mystic Soul – The Raw Sound Of Burkina Faso 1974 to 1979 - V/A
