New Gaida's debut, "Levantine Indulgence" is the pride of mulattapop label distributorship in many moons. It is currently available for sale even though its official release date is May 11, 2010. Abdoulaye Diabate's "Sara" and Fula Flute, "Mansa America" both did pretty good in critical acclaim and sales in 2009.

ElodieO's Stubborn is here

elodieO is originally from Paris, France and she sang, composed and arranged all the music on Stubborn with the exception of two re-arranged covers, one by Serge Gainsbourg and the other by The Cure. Her sound is an elegant mix of 60's Nico-esque pop and 90's golden era trip-hop and down-tempo. Stubborn is a brilliant and complex album that is a suitable soundtrack for both a night on the town, and, the more intimate activities that often follow.

New release from Miliki Music

Miliki Music harkens to the mood and style of King Sunny Ade’s 1980 international debut ‘Juju Music’ but without a major label production budget. It differentiates itself in a broader creative spectrum from its seven distinctive featured artists and a modernist take on tradition. Its two octogenarians, veterans of the 60s, highlife, Fatai Rolling Dollars and Kokoro, and the guitarist scion of the founding father of Yoruba Juju guitar music, Biodun Ayinde Bakare, lend this collection a cache similar to the Buena Vista Social Club phenomenon.

Though many of the songs here reference the 60s Juju-Highlife tradition, other songs that hint of Afrobeat (courtesy of ex-Fela Kuti’s keyboardist Duro Ikujenyo), Jazz and Big Band Highlife round up this amazing collection of modern Nigerian music.
