An Afro-pop legend, Papa Wemba has been a template for world music synthesis since the 1970s, blending, over the course of several bands and solo albums, elements of traditional Zairean music, soukous, r&b, funk, jazz, and Caribbean rhythms, among other sounds. The two-disc BEST OF PAPA WEMBA serves as an overview of the icon’s output, offering 15 tracks of danceable, high-energy fusion music that showcases the man’s knack for accessible hybrids, and the full force of his wailing, passionate, powerhouse voice.

The World According to Peter Gabriel

A figurehead of the British prog rock scene with Genesis, Peter Gabriel, who will turn 70 on February 13th, later became a champion of world music and an example of the politically engaged artist, through his label Real World, his Womad festivals and of course the protest song “Biko”, etched into the history books and made famous from the Amnesty International tour concerts. Let’s take a look back at the career of a pop star not like the others.

Tuareg Blues: The Rock Oasis

Since the Tuareg group Tinariwen released their first official album in 2002, entitled “The Radio Tisdas Sessions”, their guitar-soaked electric music has become a category of rock - one that is recognised and respected from Bamako to Los Angeles. This international success has allowed many musicians from the Sahara to get their music heard. And Western rockers have often been attracted to this poetic music emanating from the sand dunes and rocky expanses.

Let’s Head for Cape Verde

Ever since the Portuguese annexed this collection of desert islands in the 15th century to make it a slave trade hub, the Black and Portuguese populations have mixed over time to give birth to a brand new language and brand new music—each island more or less developing its own style—, transforming the Cape Verdean dry lands into a bottomless talent pool.
