Music Monday! What are you listening to? Here is Jiro's list "I chose these songs after going to the MIM museum in Phoenix last weekend. I've always loved music from all over this planet and it re-ignited my interest. I only had enough to time to walk through the Africa section and was really impressed by the attention to detail and depth of the exhibits. Here are some of my favorites." Congotronics- Paradiso Music from the Congo using the Likembe (thumb piano) played through amps. Killer sounds!! Fela Kuti original- Original Sufferhead This was the first track of Fela I ever heard back when I was living in Japan. Been hooked ever since. Al Hassan Kuban- Om Sha'ar Asmar Medaffar I don't understand the lyrics but this track grooves hard with the bass and percussion. Cheikha Rimitti -Nouar Any compilation of African music must have the queen of Rai represented! Gnawa Halwa - Arbi A Moulay I love trance music from all over the globe and gnawa is no exception. Google Gnawa music Getachew Mekurya- Almaz Yeharerwa Chill out to the funky sounds of this old school saxophone.
