I came across the 3 Mustaphas 3 on one of Riko's "Steal This Disc" collections. I became a fan very quickly. 3M3's essential albums are "Shopping," "Heart of Uncle" and "Soup of the Century."

In one of my very favorite movies, "The Fifth Element," I got a charge out of the music for the taxi chase scene. It was done by an Algerian fellow, Cheb Khaled, and his band. He is the leading proponent of a genre of music called Rai. I also found this gem of his:

I was wrong about Jim and Bertrand, for they were not my first exposure to world music, if by "world music" you mean anything/everything outside the US of A. No, it was the British folk band Pentangle, like so:

Oddly enough i only discovered Pentangle fairly recently. I was looking for a band called 'OUTBACK' from the 80s... and picked up 'PENTANGLING by PENTANGLE' at the same time.... i like them.... and folk is not my usual thing...most be getting more mellow as i age!

I also like Bonnie Dobson!

I listened to Outback, and the album cover looked familiar from somewhere. Listening to Bonnie now, but don't like it quite as well.

Bonnie is something a bit like Marmite! Mrs PC does not like either.... Outback is much more easy on the ears.... However i really do like 'Morning Dew' which is an anti nuclear war song by Bonnie Dobson.....

I am glad that you like one of them! :)

Mwoah...

Nothing new, and it feels a bit like overkill and cheap to me.

But it proves Giorgio Moroder was it's time way ahead in the late seventies.


Maybe I will do new extended version of it without ruining the original version...

Here is one of Shaun's mix tapes, circa 2014, playing back on my Sony TC-K950ES. Shaun appreciates a good disco tune.

Ha! And what an excellent light show to go with that tune... :) Great stuff Nando...

@ Miles - if you can 'Miles' some DISCO tunes.... that would be something else! But you would need to include some Boney M..... just to make it right!!

Boney M isn't right from itself. It was a fraud created by Frank Farian.

How the hell do you think creating a funky mix using stuff like that?

Although this video is still funny:

Quality stuff! And may his soul rest in peace...

You cannot have any disco mix without a little taster of Boney M!! It simply isn't cricket.... or the 70's

Proper funk mix is being prepared for you...minus the Boney M of course!! Ha!
