El Rey Del Son Montuno

Ref: RRS001


Price: 9.99

Tres player and bandleader Arsenio Rodriguez is the father of the modern Afro-Cuban sound. A prolific composer the songs on this album are original versions of Cuban classics, some performed many years later by Buena Vista Social Club, while BVSC's Ruben Gonzalez cut his teeth playing with Arsenio Rodriguez. It is therefore a document of the golden age in Cuban music.

American Music In The Beginning

American Music In The Beginning

Ref: RRS004


Price: 19.99

The beginning of the 20th century produced some of America's most innovative and pioneering recording stars. Name such as Billy Murray, Peerless Quartet and Harry Macdonough were the revered idols of their day. Nevertheless, their talents and important contribution have largely remained ignored by the popular media and mainstream record companies, and therefore unjustly unnoticed by the record buying public. This 2 CD set, compiled by and with extensive liner notes written by Toyo Nakamura, Japan's foremost music journalist, sets the record straight, paying tribute to these forgotten heroes of American popular music.

Behind these 50 tracks, lay the roots of many American styles of music. The earliest forms of gospel, jazz, ragtime, blues and country; recordings of the music brought to America by its early immigrants from Ireland, the Caribbean and Eastern Europe. Alongside the forgotten names are legendary performers including Jimmie Rodgers, Jelly Roll Morton, Original Dixieland Jazz Band, Duke Ellington, Pine Top Smith and the Memphis Jug Band. With extensive liner notes and two and a half hours of music, American Music; In the Beginning is a much needed document on the most important story of American music that was never told.

Miss You Amami

RIKKI

Miss You Amami

Ref: RAS101


Price: 13.99

Rikki is from a place just about as far south in Japan proper as you can get. Amami island is the last drop of Kagoshima, the southernmost prefecture of Kyushu, the southern of the four main islands that comprise Japan. Lying almost exactly half way between Japan and the southern islands of Okinawa, the music of Amami is a unique hybrid of its two neighbours. The music sounds stylistically essentially Japanese, but is played on a sanshin,(snake skinned banjo) more similar to Okinawa. The distinctive falsetto singing style is just about unique, there being little similar in either Japan or Okinawa. Amami shima uta (island songs) are often considered to be the Japanese blues, and the southernmost of the country’s folk styles.

Rikki (full name Ritsuki Nakano) was born to sing Amami shima uta. She started when she was four years old, making her ‘public’ debut at a minyo (local folk songs) award show in Kagoshima City the following year. The next year, still only six, she won that award and for the following six years until 1988. At the age of fifteen she won the National Folk Award title, the youngest winner in history.

On ‘Miss You Amami’ Rikki sings traditional songs and others rooted in the island tradition, with other influences and elements to create a new Amami island music. Still only young, (she was born in 1975) Rikki is somewhat a veteran of a new Amami island movement in modern roots music. Back in 1995, Japanese producer Makoto Kubota, revered for his productions of Asian music, was one of the first to recognize that Rikki had the talent to help him create a new Amami island music on the album ‘Rikki.

‘Miss You Amami’ was produced by Katsunori Tanaka, who worked with Kubota on some of his Asian projects and produced a succession of albums while living in Brazil. It was this experience that gave Tanaka the impetus for including the feeling of ‘saudade’, a Portuguese word, relating to a feeling of yearning, and at the heart of much Brazilian music. At the time she made this album, Rikki had lived away from Amami for about five years, and was experiencing saudade, and is behind the title of this album, ‘Miss You Amami’.

The album also features Yuki ‘Alani’ Yamauchi, a Japanese master of the Hawaiian slack key guitar, Brazilian percussionist Beto Cazes, Malaysian accordion player S.Atan, and Japanese accordionist Aki Tamura. On sanshin, the traditional banjo like instrument, is the great Shunzo Tsukiji, one of Amami island’s finest traditional musicians, and mentor of Rikki. Taking center stage however is Rikki and her beguiling voice, drawing from her rich heritage, dripping with emotion, and taking her tradition into new territories.

A new type of gamelan music rooted in the past, mingled with the urban energy of the present. The new Sound of Sunda. This is a compilation of their five Indonesian releases.

ELVY SUKAESIH

The Dangdut Queen

Ref: RAS104


Price: 13.99

Elvy Sukaesih is revered as one of Indonesia's and East Asia's greatest ever singers. From the late 60s, her career developed alongside dangdut, the deeply funky local street music, that emerged from 1950s Orkes Melayu (orchestras) and blended various foreign music including Arabic, Indian and western rock with Indonesian instruments such as suling (flute) and gendang (tabla shaped drums). Elvy was the undisputed 'Queen of Dangdut' during the music's golden age in the mid 1970s to 80s, before (arguably) the raw energy and blistering musicianship got drowned out by drum machines and synthesizers. This CD charts the course of this golden age, with a collection of Elvy's biggest hits and rare tracks.

VELHA GUARDA DA PORTELA

Velha Guarda da Portela

Ref: RAS105


Price: 13.99

Velha Guarda da Portela, 'The old guard of the Portela tradition' are a group of veteran musicians from one of Brazil's most historical escola de samba, situated in Oswaldo Cruz, just outside Rio. Their infectious samba is typified by its communal feel with wild beats and joyous chorus parts. In 1986 Japanese producer Katsunori Tanaka traveled to their hometown to rehearse and record with them over several months. This album conveys the intimate atmosphere of a 1950s samba party played by master musicians from a 70 year old tradition, way before the modern glitz took over. Many of these musicians have subsequently died, but their music lives on with these glorious recordings of classic Portela samba.
