7/28/2011 African Rhythms


Malian singer Mamani Keita has a new CD coming out next month — a collaboration with French producer Nicolas Repac — that promises to make some waves on the world music scene. We heard the cut Demissen Koulou from that album on today’s African Rhythms, along with a Swizz Beatz remix of Seun Kuti’s Rise Up and a track from NRBLN: Welcome to the Madhouse which features Berlin-based producers working with Kenyan hip hop artists.
