World Music mag.
« on: February 25, 2008, 06:30:25 PM »
World Music is such a huge genre these days compared to the 80's. Picked up jan/feb Global Rhythm magazine (mostly because it had a free cd of tunes attached). It's main article and cover feature Youssou N'Dour, the int'l singer from  Senegal (where I grew up). I used to hang out  at his nite club in Dakar (Thiossane - 'our culture') to hear local music etc..
Anyway, it's worth the $6 just for the 10 song cd - a sampler of new world beat artists.


I like m'balax, soukous, zouk, blues, roots reggae, s.a.zulu music, certain 70's & 80's rock (esp. the police), almost any tribal recordings, a few select radio/hip-hop songs....I'm sure other stuff too, can't recall right now. :Drogar-Smile(LBG):

Here's a bit of Youssou N'Dour.........he's in the red. The guitarist is Jimi M'Baye, one of the best in the country (Senegal).

Here's some of Youssou that airs in Senegal - interesting dancing.The beats drop on 1 and 3 in Mbalax (pop senegalese music) instead of 2 and 4 like what we are used to hearing.
