The name Lefter comes from a Turkish football legend of Greek descent who was also a peace symbol between two societies. Lefter/Elefterios which is originally a Greek word, means free/freedom.
Lefter Records specializes in so-called world music. Our offering of second-hand vinyl is unique in germany in terms of quality and broadness. At our place, you will find special sections on caribbean music, calypso, brazilian bossanova, arabian sounds, latin, bellydance, field recordings from all regions of the world, balkan diaspora, russian bards, and as the icing on the cake, the biggest vinyl collection of turkish music in europe, comprising of more than 1000 items.
All sections are being constantly updated with weekly fresh arrivals.
We also feature quickly expanding blues, jazz, folk, rock, soul, reggae, soundtrack and library sections, as well as special bins for african/arabian/global 45s.
And don’t miss the crates of cheapos, with hundreds of 2€/5€ records and 1€ singles. Even when you can’t find something to fit your taste-of-the-day in the regular sections, this should make sure a visit is worthwhile anytime.
If you are selling we would possibly be interested in especially music from Turkey or Middle East. If you are collecting, we hope you enjoy digging our collection. For some of the records we have, please take a look at our Discogs page.
