World Music

One more from the archives – a snippet of conversation with composer/guitarist/guitar-maker Arcadio Marin and a chance to hear again his lush opening number from Romerias.

International DJ Paul Harding is today’s guest, bringing fresh music from North Africa and beyond. Plus: key tracks from Fatoumata Diawara, Owiny Sigoma, Antibalas and more. 2 hours with Brad, Deborah, Jojo and Paul.

Kicking things off tonight with the excellent new “Rise Up and Love” album from Doktor Lond & Agarfa (Roots Lab Int’l/Springline). This was followed by the new dub-heavy “In the Chamber of Dub” album from General Levy & Joe Ariwa (son of Mad Professor). On top of this we had new tunes from The Dynamics, Tony Dubshot, Dub Colossus, Dr. Echo, Madness, Jah Marnyah, and Full Dub. Then, in the middle of the program, we aired part 1 of Dr. StrangeDub’s “In the garden of Dub” mix. This dubwise mix celebrates the pleasures of gardening, the roots of life, and the seasons of nature.
