1. Söndörgő - Tamburocket

Fast and furious, fingers flying with a fiery panache, Söndörgő are one of the most exciting bands in Europe. With their signature instrument, the tambura, the band brilliantly combines respect for tradition with a desire to innovate and a fizzing virtuosity.

2. The Bombay Royale - The Island Of Dr Electro

The Island of Dr Electrico, The Bombay Royale's second studio album, is a varied musical landscape – from lonesome spaghetti to surf-rock, from psychedelia to spine-bending space disco, overlaid with the voices of our protagonists The Tiger and The Mysterious Lady.

3. Sia Tolno - African Woman

Sia Tolno's explosive new album African Woman is produced by Afrobeat legend Tony Allen and carries on in the same way as many of his classic recordings. Explosive: a woman takes up Afrobeat! The Yoruba, funk, jazz fusion of Afrobeat is rough, rowdy and political. It was introduced at the end of the 60s by the prince of the Nigerian resistance, Fela Anikulapo Kuti. Yet Guinea's Sia Tolno is not afraid to take up Fela's torch. Her third album, African Woman, challenges male supremacy in a forceful style derived from Ghanaian 'high-life'.

4. V/A - The Rough Guide To The Music Of Palestine
Palestine is a beautiful ancient land of faith where conflict appears to overshadow its creative voices. This unique Rough Guide explores the diverse and wonderful array of music that springs out of adversity and expresses the deep roots of Palestinian identity.

5. V/A - The Rough Guide To The Music Of The Sahara

Almost as big as the USA, the vast Sahara spans Africa from the Atlantic Ocean to the Red Sea. Despite being the hottest desert on earth, it is home to millions of people whose diverse cultures and traditions create a vivid cultural landscape. This Rough Guide features the region’s best-loved artists as well as exploring beyond the arid sandscapes to reveal hidden Saharan sounds.

6. Mamy Kanouté - Mousso Lou

In 2013, Bao Sissoko and Wouter Vandenabeele began a CD project with the fantastic Griot singer Mamy Kanouté (Dakar, Senegal), one of the principal background singers of Baaba Maal. Mousso Lou was recorded in Dakar with members of the Sissoko and Kanouté families, all splendid musicians who enriched the album with balaphone, kora, guitar, voice… The recording of the strings, the mixing and the finalisation of the album took place in Liège, Belgium. The result is an excellent selection of traditional songs and compositions of Mamy Kanouté and Baye Diop. Here, the classical griot music is mixed with some audacious string arrangements.

7. Kasai Allstars - Beware the Fetish

"Six years after their debut album, the Kinshasa-based collective are back with a double album of lengthy, hypnotic songs that provide a furious reminder of the wilder side of Congolese music. Kasai Allstars are a 16-piece band made up of five different groups from the Kasai region of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, joined here by an extra 24 guest musicians. All of the tracks involve chanting, an insistent array of percussion and relentless riffs from guitars, xylophones and the amplified, distorted likembe thumb piano. There are some extraordinary moments, from the unaccompanied chanting and likembe workout on 'Thus Spoke the Ancestors' to the suitably spooky and edgy title track. Several of the musicians took part in the Congotronics vs Rockers project three years ago, along with members of Konono No 1, their producer Vincent Kenis and singer Juana Molina, and the final track is a suitably frantic reminder of that tour. Play it very loud." - The Guardian

8. Arto Lindsay - Encyclopedia Of Arto

Encyclopedia of Arto , is a photograph of the musical world created by Arto Lindsay. A double CD that presents the different musical souls that have always been the basis of the musical creativity of this American musician and composer.

9. Sergio Mendes - Magic

Producer, composer, keyboardist and vocalist, Sergio Mendes’ influence on the music industry has spanned five decades and continues to evolve through new collaborations and mediums. One of the most internationally successful Brazilian artists of all time, Mendes has recorded more than 35 albums, many of which went gold or platinum, and he’s a three-time Grammy Award winner. Magic is Sergio Mendes' latest album and includes guests such as John Legend, Seu Jorge & Milton Nascimento.

10. Sonzeira - Brasil Bam Bam Bam

This record is the product of Gilles Peterson being a fan and a champion of Brazilian music in the clubs and on the radio for the last 25 years, culminating in him bringing together the country’s finest artists all on one album for the very first time. Recorded in Rio de Janeiro, they collaborated to create a collective called Sonzeira and an album that is Brasil Bam Bam Bam – a true expression of the real soul and authentic sound of Brasil, from its majestic heritage to its super-dynamic present. One of the world’s most respected DJs and Brasilian music aficionados, Gilles turned producer for this ambitious venture, setting up camp in Rio de Janeiro with young UK production trio Sam Shepherd (Floating Points); Dilip Harris and Rob Gallagher from 2 Banks of 4; and Kassin from Rio big band Orquestra Imperial. Together they set about recording all-new material with a stellar line-up of Brasilian talent, under the name Sonzeira. The result, Brasil Bam Bam Bam, is an inspirational portrait of a nation in sound. At its heart are mesmerising vocal performances from superstars young and old, including City of God actor and singer Seu Jorge, and the grande dame of samba, 76-year-old powerhouse Elza Soares.
