Kenyan entertainer Nyambane visited African Rhythms today, sharing his wit and wisdom plus some serious words about AMREF’s campaign to Stand Up For African Mothers (more information at www.amref.org). Plenty of great music as well including tracks from Batida, Terakaft, Francis Bebey, Orchestre Baobab and much more. Two hours with Brad and Jojo.
It’s the last conversation between Kristine and jazz/flamenco composer/pianist Sergio Pamies, so Kristina plays Sergio’s top 3 inspirations – Paco de Lucia, Bill Evans, and Chick Corea, and of course there’s a track by Sergio too!
Another Echo Chamber brimming with great music new and old… Old school meets new school in two new releases: Dubblestandart & Marcia Griffiths with “Holding You Close” (an EP containing 7 mixes) and The Orb & Lee Scratch Perry on the new album “Observer In the Star House”. Also new tonight: Jimmy Cliff’s aclaimed new “Rebirth” album; the mighty Dub Syndicate with the new “Special King Size Dub” release (Echo Beach); Overproof Soundsystem’s “Pull It Up!”; and a new album in the Lovers Rock series from Tuskani. More recent releases from The Dynamics, Dr. Mooch, Ratapignata, Groundation, Anna Gemina, Dennis Bovell, Dub Rifles, and Sonora Irreal. On top of this we did a 5 track set from Springline Records which included the fine new release from Ras Sis Highness, plus David Powell Experience, Hassle, Yabass Yaba Radics, and The Manor.
