Greg guided the rythms today. We played lots of fuzzy, buzzy, electrified music from the 1960's & 1970's today. A set from Northern Africa included Algeria, Egypt and Morrocco started the program off. We spent some time in Zanzibar listening to Taarab music and in Madagascar checking out contemporary takes on traditional tunes. The last part of the show was more buzzing and fuzzing with funk from 1970's Ghana.
Afro-Andean dance music, music from Argentina & Brasil – pertaining to recent film screenings @ 35th Annual MSP Int'l. Film Fest (mspfilm.org).
Next I follow up with music from another former Portuguese colony, Angola. From Samba to Semba… including a Congolese dance version… ending this week's program with a new release from Cumbancha – Lakou Mizik's "Wa Di Yo", out of Haiti !
