It's no surprise that Tony Allen's new album does nothing to dim his reputation as one of the world's greatest drummers. He's the personification of subtlety, leading from the back and carefully pushing and prodding the music, but doing this so cleverly that half the time people don't even notice he's there. He's certainly a man whose four limbs operate independently, setting up cross- and counter-rhythms that add extra levels of texture and complexity to the music. On Secret Agent, recorded in his native Lagos, he's joined by a number of guests (including five different vocalists), but the core musicians working with him are producer Fixi, who contributes several instruments, and Cameroonian guitarist Claude Dibongue, who works well in this framework. It's largely Afrocentric, and definitely political, in the best tradition of Allen's late employer, Fela Kuti. Allen himself contributes vocals to the opening and closing tracks, showing he's more than a drummer, even if his voice is low-key. That he plays so well is remarkable. That he does it like this when he's almost 70 is amazing.

Fela, pape de l’afrobeat

Fusion des rythmes de l’ouest africain, de la soul, du funk et du jazz, l’afrobeat de son chamanique créateur disparu il y a 20 ans, influence encore aujourd’hui des hordes de musiciens. Brasier de cuivres et concentré de rythmes : et Fela Anikulapo Kuti inventa la transe la plus bouillonnante des années 70 et 80.

David Byrne, tête chercheuse

Il a piloté les Talking Heads, enregistré du punk funk et de la musique sud-américaine, réédité des pépites de world music, passé des heures à pédaler dans les grandes villes du monde entier et fait des dizaines d’autres choses. Mais que se passe-t-il donc dans la tête de David Byrne ?

Blues touareg, l’oasis du rock

Depuis la sortie en 2002 du premier album officiel du groupe touareg Tinariwen, “The Radio Tisdas Sessions”, leur musique électrique dominée par les guitares est devenue une catégorie de rock, reconnue et respectée de Bamako à Los Angeles. Alors que Tinariwen édite, vingt ans plus tard, son tout premier album retrouvé sur une vieille cassette, retour sur la scène des musiciens originaires du Sahara, qui ne cessent d’attirer les rockers occidentaux en quête d’authenticité rebelle.
