^ Yep, I used to listen to these guys and enjoyed that hypnotic quality too.

Here's the long title track from a 1984 album that also has a hypnotic quality to it. (The band, Dissidenten, are from Germany, but have a career of working with world musicians, in this case, from Morocco.)

2015 re-release of the 1967 debut and only album from Ginger Johnson and his African Messengers. Too bad they didn't release more albums because this one is a 10/10 in my book.
^ Thanks for the link, Psy-Fi. I found the biog of Ginger Johnson very interesting, and am now listening to one of the "you may also like" recommendations there: a band called Soothsayers:-

Various Artists - Sound of Siam Volume 2 - Molam & Luk Thung from North East Thailand 1970​-​1982

Sound of Siam Volume 2 - Molam & Luk Thung from North East Thailand 1970​-​1982




Haven't heard this one for a year or so. Decided to give it a spin. I have both volumes in the set and I think this one is the better of the two.

Quote:
Soundway’s second foray into South East Asia is focused on North-East Thailand, the epicentre of Molam and Luk Thung Isan music. Hypnotic phin & khaen riffs, pulsing, electrified country rhythms and heartfelt vocals punctuate another journey into the lesser known reaches of 1970s Thai music.

The first volume of The Sound of Siam, released in 2011, was the first introduction for many to the artistry and innovations of modern Thai music. One of the most popular compilations on Soundway Records the music even made it onto the big screen with ‘Mae Jom Ka Lon’ by Dao Bandon featured on the soundtrack of ‘The Hangover Part II’. In an interview with LA Times Mick Jagger spoke of discovering the collection that “some nutter put together” after hearing the riff from Jumpin’ Jack Flash on one of the tracks from the compilation.

KonKoma - KonKoma (2012)

KonKoma






The debut and (so far) only album from "KonKoma" out of London, England. Might just be a one-off type of album but well worth a listen.



Quote:
KonKoma was originally conceived by saxophonist Max Grunhard and producer Ben Lamdin who wanted to form a group around a pair of highly-respected and well-known Ghanaian musicians -- Alfred Bannerman and Emmanuel Rentzos. Both have been working musicians for a long time having worked with the likes of Bobby Womack and Hugh Masakela, as well as regularly playing with long-time afro-rock band Osibisa.
