    Thanks for sharing. Trying to gain a knowledge of Latin music and it’s history. What brought me here was “Ramito, el Cantor de la Montaña Parrandeando, Ansonia 1981”, now that history is a plus for me. Thanks alot.

    Does Global Groove have a Subscription or RSS Feed option somewhere? I don’t want to lose sight of this blog!

    Moos you are the KING! I never thought I’d ever hear any of Les Grands Succes des Editions Veve, let alone 8 of the 9, and a whole lot more. You have some truly MAGIC music here.

    A request: Can you please look for an Empire Bakuba LP, as rare as hen’s teeth (You can’t even Google it), from maybe around 1980 on Editions l’Oreille Internationale. It contains what I think is Pepe Kalle’s best ever song, and that’s saying something. I had it on cassette, but can’ find it. It does exist: You have a Zaiko LP on the same label.

    We are forever in your gratitude. Thanks so much Moos!

    Awesome site. Do you happen to have “Maa Jo” – By King Sunny Ade? If you do, how can I get my hands on the file?

  20. I love this site. I searched from Cape Verdean music, but no results…I would love to listen and get educated on it someday.

    Dear Moos,

    I was 22 when I first heard African Music it was 1981 I was in Kisangani, Zaire. I came back to London 2 years later with my eyes and ears opened. Ever since then I have had a life long love of Congolese music. At that time African music was largely unknown in London.

    I never imagined in my wildest dreams that i would find an archive like yours of such awesome quality. You have my highest esteem, what you are doing in preserving this priceless music is what life is about. On a personal level I coudn’t imagine a closer heart than yours to mine.

    Thank you, everlasting thank you,

    Tim (Hackney, London)

    Hello again, my friend.

    We’ve chatted in the past: last year, you helped me identify an Opambuo highlife. I’m trying to leave this message on your email, but I get an error message saying your box is full.

    Anyway, I wanted to let you know that I’ve got a blog going, lately. Its maybe more for musicians and even those who read music? But its always got a lot of music and video examples to hear and watch. Everything is in the (“Latin”) Mozambique style, maybe a bit narrow but if it’s something you like…?

    Also be aware that sometimes I go many months without time to post! I’ve tried to make up for it, with a lot of posts lately. If you think the blog could be improved in any way, I’d welcome your suggestions, too!

    ***I hope you enjoy it***

    And thanks again for what you are doing at the Groove.

    Hi Moos,
    Your website is really amazin, this is the right place for people like us who enjoy the groove no matter where is it from.
    Since I have discovered it I am a faithful visitor, not a single day without making a tour to see new posts and I am always surprised to find real gems from all over the world. Even from the small french island in the Caribbean, Guadeloupe “Gwada”, where I am from.
    I have downloaded in the past LP from Typical Combo, Daniel Dimbas, Hiver Abidos… that’s why I wanted to inform you that Hiver Abidos died 2 weeks ago and last saturday the band (Typical Présé Présé) played for his funerals in a crowded public garden in Basse-Terre and they will also play this week end in Saint-Claude in memory of late Daniel Dimbas who died a couple of years ago.
    So these Lp, available on your site are even more valuable for us now.

    Thanks for the good job you are doing.

    Kenbé rèd, fòs! (hold tight, don’t lose heart!)
