As always, after a few months of musical digging I have been inspired to put together another Rhythm & Roots Mix. This time round it came out as a celebration of the links between Latin American and African music (and pieces that cross the bridge).
One of my biggest discoveries (though originally released in 2010) has been Donso, a collaboration between Parisien producer Krazy Baldhead and Malian singer Gedeon Papa Diarra. There are also a couple of African edits from Amsterdam’s tropical duo UMOJA and a few unreleased El Búho tracks. Lots of little discoveries making it an eclectic celebration of fresh, contemporary “global” music.
