Diam
2.  Diam by Daby Touré

4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews)

Papa Wemba
5.  Papa Wemba by Papa Wemba

5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

Best Of
6.  Best Of by Marta Sebestyen

Sound Magic 1
8.  Sound Magic 1 by Afro Celt Sound System
The list author says:
  "An Afro-Celtic-Techno fusion really shouldn't work but here it does to great effect. Atmospheric pipes and solid beats leave you torn between dancing and lying on your back watching clouds."

4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (13 customer reviews)

Soro
9.  Soro by Salif Keita

The Lion
12.  The Lion by Youssou N'Dour
The list author says:
  "Might have chosen any one of ten Youssou N'Dour albums. The Voice of Africa delivers nine of his unmistakable blend of Woolof-Jazz  fusion with a little help from Peter Gabriel."

4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

World Lounge
13.  World Lounge by Putumayo Presents

4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (4 customer reviews)

Nursery Boys Go Ahead
14.  Nursery Boys Go Ahead by Abana Ba Nasery

£23.95   Used & New from: £12.99

Kongo Sigui
15.  Kongo Sigui by Super Rail Band De Bamako
The list author says:
  "Still going after all these years and still great. Manding traditions fused with Jazz and a former line-up that reads like a Who's Who of Malian music - Salif Keita, Djelimady Tounkara, Mory Kante ..."
£19.95   Used & New from: £5.99

Clandestino: Esperando La Ultima Ola...
16.  Clandestino: Esperando La Ultima Ola... by Manu Chao

Bembeya
18.  Bembeya by Bembeya Jazz National
The list author says:
  "Guinea's answer to Mali's Super Rail Band - they've also been going for decades and play a Mandling-Jazz fusion but with more emphasis on the Jazz. Instantly accessible - especially the title track."
£12.99   Used & New from: £3.12
