Album Review: Duma – Duma [Nyege Nyege Tapes; August 2020]

When Venom’s legendary album Black Metal came out in 1982, ‘black’ meant two things: a vague reference to Old Nick himself and a fashion statement. Not one metalhead could have foreseen that it would be in – of all places – Nairobi where the mosh pits would be heaving with headbangers...

Interview: Q&A w/ Meridian Brothers – Cumbia from the Future

Since 1998,  they’ve been bringing the sound of cumbia forward. Meridian Brothers and their founder Eblis Álvarez have helped to radically shift the image of the Latin American style, from a traditional, and in some cases old-school, inherent aspect of the Latin culture to a dynamic, experimental and even challenging...

Interview: Mentrix – In Search of Your Voice (June 2020)

This year there have been debut albums, and then there has been My Enemy, My Love by Mentrix (née Samar Rad).

Interview: Bukky Leo – The Afrobeat Time Traveller (June 2020)

There are only a bunch of musicians who can claim to embody the history and evolution of a music style. Bukky Leo is part of this restricted club. His career and possibly life are indeed manifestations of afrobeat. So much so that, if you’d like to approach the quintessential Nigerian...
