We start with Mali, there's a blast of Burkinabé hip-hop, and new tunes and some not-new tunes from current favourites Diron Animal, Baloji and Konono No 1, Tshegue and KOKOKO! We also have some great Arabic electronic from Tropikal Camel and we end with a New Orleans brass band dirge from 1951.
An hour of laid back African tunes. Starts with Mali - traditional, then modern groups reinterpreting the traditional styles. Then a set of lo-fi sounds from Madagascar, DR Congo and Guinea, a bit of soukous, rhumba and benga and we end with mbira electronics.
As often happens, starts mellow and joyful, and slowly gets darker and heavier. There is a constant stream of really great music coming out of Africa right now - fresh and innovative and great to dance to.
