Review: Two years ago, Ostinato Records was granted access to the bulging archives of Radiodiffusion-Television de Djibouti (RTD) in order to compile a series of releases showcasing the best of East African music of the last 50 years. This fine compilation showcases some of the results of the label's tireless digging. It focuses on music recorded by 4 Mars, a 40-piece Somalian supergroup which was initially established by a political party. Musically it's an astonishing melting pot of sounds and styles, with Somalian vocals rising above fuzzy 1970s synthesizers, funk guitars, North and East African rhythms, jazz and soul horns, surprise Asian instrumentation and, intriguingly, nods towards Jamaican reggae. The result is a range of vibrant, Kaleidoscopic cuts that genuinely sound like nothing else around.

Review: The Gulf of Tadjoura is a basin of the Indian Ocean in the Horn of Africa, south of the entrance to the Red Sea. It's an area rich in natural flora and fauna, with a bustling and lively music scene to match, as proven by this new compilation on Ostinato's Djibouti Archives series. It all features a 40 person Somali ensemble of dancers, actor, musicians, percussionists and singers called 4 Mars (named after the founding date of The People's Rally for Progress in 1997. The group served as house band for that collective and here show their sound is full of soulful and sassy grooves that tend to go slow but build you up big. Elements of African, Asia and Mediterranean culture all permeate the tracks, some of which are studio recordings, other live performances.

Review: Since Dijbouti gained independence in 1977, no music made in the tiny East African nation has been released internationally. Yet the country is blessed with some superb musicians, many of which play for Groupe RTD, the in-house musical ensemble of the state broadcaster. "The Dancing Devils of Dijbouti", their brand-new debut album, was recorded after hours at the RTD studio and offers thrilling glimpse into the unique musical fusions popular in the country. From start to finish, the album offers up a succession of sublime cuts that somehow join the dots between Bollywood-style vocals, NYC jazz, Somalian funk, Middle Eastern synthesizer sounds and, most surprisingly of all, Jamaican dub and reggae. It's a stunning and genuinely eye-opening combination.
