There’s been a surge of powerful music from the sub-Sahara in the last few years and one of the finer pracitioners is the Malian group Terakaft. We heard a cut from their new CD Aratan N Azawad on today’s African Rhythms, along with new music from Karl Hector the Malcouns, a track from the forthcoming K. Frimpong his Cubano Fiestas vinyl reissue and much more.

6/16 in a nutshell…
OOPS! The 4@4 shoulda had Zap Pow’s Wild Honey in there somewhere; the set was instead bookended on both sides by Tommy McCook’s The Watergate Affair! Oh, well… as good an excuse as any to begin the show’s description with an Oops, right? At least GotchaSKAvered came out as planned_ Bad Manners treated us to their take on Exodus. Mr. Review also brought Tarzan kicking and screaming into the ’80s, and Natty Bo delivered a double-shot of Ska Cubano. Working backwards, Sherwood B. Funn sampled papayas and mangos a la Rosemary Clooney and Shiina Ringo (straight from the Shady Nuke!). Sometime during the oldies hour, a UFO crashed in ’47. It was one of ours… happens a lot around here. ;^)
