    Default African music 2010

    The African music at Coachella is always a highlight for me each year. Amadou and Marriam, Konono no1 and of course Tinariwen were all fantastic. I still can't believe the legendary TInariwen was so low on the poster that year.


    Femi should be there, no doubt


    who else?

    check out TOmmy T.

    Gogol Bordello's bass players debut album. Good shit. no youtube but check out the clips on Itunes




    http://www.monstersandcritics.com/sm...sions-released


    The background of Gogol Bordello’s Ethiopian bassist Tommy T may only be an undercurrent for that Gypsy-rockin’ band, but it’s given full reign on Tommy’s solo outing, The Prester John Sessions. The name comes from a mythical figure of the Middle Ages, which Tommy uses as a metaphor for his search through his musical roots on this album. That search takes him through Ethiopian folk melodies (updated and given a fresh twist), booming, bottom-heavy dub reggae, and the kind of jazzy, funky sounds that popped up when Ethiopian artists began soaking up the music coming out of the U.S. and U.K. in the ’70s. On a couple of cuts, Ethiopia’s own Gigi — veteran of the World Music scene and collaborator/wife of Bill Laswell — lends her exotic pipes to the swirling, sensual mix of styles, and the Gogol Bordello gang pops up on another. For the most part, though, The Prester John Sessions is an instrumental affair whose insinuating reggae grooves, tasty jazz licks, and churning slices of steamy Ethiopian funk combine for an international experience a lot more resonant and personal than anything you’ll find on some Putumayo mix CD.

    I love this thread.

    My personal wish list of artists I've not yet seen:

    Femi Kuti
    Seun Kuti
    Vieux Farka Toure
    Baaba Maal
    Tony Allen(saw him with The Good, The Bad and The Queen in 07, but need a solo show)
    anyone from the Honest Jon's Record label


    I would also welcome back Amadou and Miriam, one of my favorite groups of all time.

    they're fantastic musicians, but the album as a whole to me does not really excite.

    I fully support this. The west coast needs to bear witness to the dance clininic that I lay down to afro-beat. For reference please see "Undies+Antibalas+ACL+2008" on you tube.

    ^Antibalas are long overdue on the polo fields. I've been expecting them on the lineup for years.
