We are a record label. We may be based in Paris and London but our hearts firmly rooted in the universal motherland. We love African music, we want everyone to hear it and we want to spread the love. We are a collective of crate diggers, afro music-heads, label spotters and vinyl buying obsessives. We don't have any particular musical release agenda apart from,

"is it of African origin, does it have a beat? do we like it?".

Launching in 2015 with the "Africa Airways" compilation series, we've gone on to re-issue several long lost gems from across Africa from the likes of Pasteur Lappe, Manu Dibango, Jo Tongo, Ekambi Brillant, Momo Joseph, Jake Solo & Jo Bisso


Nous sommes un groupe de collectionneurs de disques, passionnés de musique Afro, et dénicheurs de talents. Nous sommes basés à Paris et à Londres, mais notre cœur est fermement ancré dans la mère patrie universelle. Grands amoureux de musique africaine, notre ambition est de la répandre dans la monde entier avec pour seul mots d'ordre: rythme & groove!

Lancé en 2015 avec la série de compilations "Africa Airways", nous avons réédité plusieurs gros succès Africains, avec entre autres, les albums de légendes humaines tel que Pasteur Lappe, Manu Dibango, Jo Tongo, Ekambi Brillant, Tala AM, Momo Joseph, Jake Sollo et Jo Bisso.

Afro Psych
(Journeys Into Psychedelic Africa 1972 - 1977)

Whilst the continents contribution to the global funk, boogie and disco canon has been well documented for decades, the strong presence of rock and psychedelia in 1970's African music has been a more slowly evolving story over the years.

Pockets of young Africans, turned on by Hendrix, the Doors, Santana and more, started to add heavy guitar riffs to rumbling, ever present funk, and built an afro psych scene that is still turning up gems to this day.

With Lagos an epicenter for the emergent scene, in 1972, local headquartered label Afrodisia was born near to the eye of the storm, and provides many of the tracks on this latest attempt to capture a bit of afro-psych magick.

Reggae Africa
(Roots & Culture 1972-1988)

On 18th April, 1980, after decades of anti colonial struggle, the Zimbabweian flag was finally raised at midnight at the Rufaro Stadium in Harare. Not long after, the words "Ladies and Gentlemen, Bob Marley and The Wailers!" rang out, and Zimbabwe's independent future began.

In the years that followed, Africa was to produce it's own reggae superstars, as the likes of Alpha Blondy, Majek Fashek and Lucky Dube swept across the continent and beyond, and there's no doubting Bob Marley's explosive impact on this particular narrative.
