Four years in the making but worth every second.

Fela Kuti: Box Set 4 – review

This is a wonderful collection of some of the finest music created. It's music that will ring eternal and Erykah Badu has chosen some of the finest and least obvious albums to be included. Badu's essays are a wonderful read as are those by Afrobeat historian and celebrated music journalist Chris May

Jupiter & Okwess: Kin Sonic – album review

Tamikrest: Kidal – album review

Louder Than War's Paul Scott-Bates finds Kidal by Tamikrest an album of defiance and hope which is well worth hearing. The struggle felt by the Tuareg nomads is represented on the album, with their hope for a homeland of their own. The songs speak of their worries about over-commercialisation of the desert and often feels like a call to arms. However, the album ultimately one of hope and defiance.

Vieux Farka Toure: Samba – album review

Often exceptional and hypnotic the solos alone are something to behold.

King Ayisoba: 1000 Can Die – album review

blending traditional with modern and even hints of the future.
