After many years I’m back again with another African special on Brooklyn Radio about the spirits of African roots from the early 70s, fresh’n’highly motivated contemporary bands from around the globe to futuristic afro inspired pumping beats.
This time I’ve invited John Warr (UK) who has been promoting and DJing African and Latin Music since the early 80s with clubs and radio shows like Afro Base on totallyradio. Next up is Peter Piper (Germany), an expert in Ethiopian 45s and LP albums of the 60s and 70s with a tasteful set of his gems.
But before I open up the show with a selection of tracks by Agogo Records‚ new signing WANUBALÉ with their brand new 10″ and Tiliboo on the Two Tribes – An Intercontinental Journey in Rhythm compilation, The Sorcerers (ATA Records) and Ikebe Shakedown (Colemine Records) with heavy instrumental burners, afro-funk-disco fusion from Burkina Faso on Mukatsuku Records and JUNGLE FIRE in a JKriv remix on Razor-N-Tape, Osayomore Joseph & The Creative 7 with Obonogbozu from Strut Records‚ new compilation Nigeria 70 Vol.4, top notch contemporary Afrobeat by The Blassics from Finland, Hoodna Orchestra from Israel, Muito Kaballa from Germany (Switchstance Recordings) and The Public Opinion Afro Orchestra from Australia (HopeStreet Recordings), North-Ghanaian Alogte Oho & His Sounds of Joy with great Frafra-Gospel on Philophon and electronic sounds by Ekiti Sound from Nigeria on Crammed Discs.
Let’s begin this 2,5h-musical experience now by hitting the play button and spread the word.
Pce & love! ♡
