And now for something completely different! Words don't do it justice, but...what you have here are (mostly) familiar Baroque vocal pieces, sung by a Congolese countertenor, Serge Kakudji, and accompanied by a battery of Congolese percussion and electric guitar. The African players are from Kinshasa, and the music is mostly in the soukous style, derived partly from Latin American rumba. There are a couple of original pieces, and in live performance the music would be accompanied by dancers. Just to top it all off, there are some syllable vocal harmonies that sound as though they could have come off 1960s lounge recordings. When it comes to cross-cultural fusions, this is hard to outdo. The idea was apparently the brainchild not of Kakudji but of Belgian composer and jazz saxophonist Fabrizio Cassol, who has traveled extensively in Africa. Sometimes the Baroque pieces lie right on the surface, and sometime they're buried more deeply; you may enjoy playing a few for friends and seeing whether they can identify the source material. What makes this all so extraordinary is that there is absolutely nothing of pat pastiche about it, or even of experiment. The music sounds as though it's the most natural thing in the world, as though people had been mixing these elements for decades, and it has the kind of swing that comes only from true enjoyment on the part of the players. A real triumph.

The Great History of Malian Music

Mandingo traditions or urban intersections, ancestral chants from the griots or dance bands on the day following the Independence, the family tree of Malian music possesses deep roots, leafy branches and a strong sap. Let’s take a look back at the fascinating history.

David Byrne, a burgeoning mind

He was the leader of the Talking Heads, he recorded punk funk and South-American music, republished gems of world music, spent countless hours cycling through large cities throughout the world, and dabbled in dozens of other activities. What is truly going on in David Byrne’s head?

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.
