New Music from West Africa

« previous episode | next episode »

Saturday, October 12, 2013

For this New Sounds, hear some loping Tamashek guitar music from the brand new record, "Aratan N Azawad" by the North Malian band, Terakaft, and some new music from the South Malian Vieux Farka Touré, with his father, Ali Farka Toure.  Then take a listen to some jazzy big band music from Volker Goetze, featuring  Ablaye Cissoko on kora.

Also, we’ll hear from the first non-cassette recording of Group Doueh, “Zayna Jumma,” playing in its electric glory along with some Malian trance blues-rock from Sorry Bamba.  Plus, a new recording from Senegalese Sufi musician Cheikh Lo.   His new record, “Jamm” translates from Wolof as “Peace.”  And more.
