(Salif Keita, Africando, Kékélé, Kandia Kouyate, Criolo, etc.)
Sterns Music (initially Sterns African Records) was at the vanguard of the 1980s world music explosion, releasing Salif Keïta's seminal album "Soro" and going on to bring a multitude of African artists to western ears - Youssou N'Dour's Etoile de Dakar, Orchestra Baobab, Ghana's Super Sweet Talks, Senegalese salseros Africando, Congolese super group Kékélé, Mali's immense griote diva Kandia Kouyate - the list goes on and on. And on.
When the new wave of Brazilian artists began to make waves in Europe, it was again Sterns who were amongst the first to blaze the trail, mostly via the forward looking, futuristic São Paolo label, YBrasil. Unfamiliar artists and bands such as Rica Amabis, Instituto, Sabotage, DJ Dolores, Anvil FX, a revamped, hard-hitting, post Chico Science Naçao Zumbi, and more latterly São Paulo stars Criolo and Emicida.
This is fantastic music for a myriad of licensing opportunities, particularly TV and film. You can grab a flavour of these exceptional catalogues on spotify - Africa and Brazil.
