And I think that’s what separates the legends from the regular artists. It’s all in how you manage that success, and how you deal with the controversy when it actually comes. I’m very inspired about the Queens. I started to pick a guitar because of their music. Meeting them will be a dream come true. michelle on 13 August, 2015 at 11:44 Reply Beatifully written, made me wish I had been there. You should be writing the blurb for the WOMAD catalogue! Kouyaté Muriel on 14 August, 2015 at 00:13 Reply Seb, thank You so much for this superb review of our performance @ Jazz Café ! I love yours photos to! Vert beautiful and full of emotion.

Baz Francis on 26 February, 2016 at 16:53 Reply We saw Anda Union when the played their Morecambe gig a couple of weeks ago and found them mesmerising Marco Canepari on 27 February, 2016 at 11:40 Reply Great to read that they left behind good memories all over the U.K. Dave on 4 April, 2016 at 19:18 Reply Can’t wait to see them! Chico Urbanus on 7 April, 2016 at 19:36 Reply Criolo’s UK tour has 6 dates: – 21st April at Junction 2 (Cambridge) – 22nd April at The Lantern at Colston Hall (Bristol) – 23rd April at Belgrave Music Hall (Leeds) – 24th April at Koko (London) – 25th April at The Haunt (Brighton) – 26th April at Band on the Wall (Manchester) Marco Canepari on 8 April, 2016 at 12:54 Reply thanks for the correction and details! Joe on 14 May, 2016 at 09:42 Reply This is fantastic. Thanks for turning me onto La Mambanegra! Although you say, “With its many acoustic instruments La Galeria asks us to listen and to take in Latin tradition, in an age of DJs and electronic music.” — there is still tons of new, organic music that’s superior to electro garbage. It’s not a challenge to make people dance with acoustic drums. Plenty of bands (Latin & gringo) are doing it well. Maybe it’s a challenge to get white, suburban 16 year old gringos to dance to this…but who cares. Jack Kolkmeyer on 18 May, 2016 at 11:56 Reply Thanks. Love your site. I’m sure some of these tracks will play on our internet radio station, Fifthwall Radio. check us out.

I’ve seen The Hot 8 Brass Band in Brooklyn. They know how to make a fun party! I think the best place to hear them live would be New Orleans or England. It’s really cool to see them get such a warm reception in the UK. Pallavi on 30 June, 2016 at 05:08 Reply An excellent collection of old creole music! A must have for music record collectors!! Lorena on 18 July, 2016 at 23:58 Reply Hello Are you posting the photos from the event? Thanks admin on 19 July, 2016 at 00:21 Reply Hi Lorena, Yes we will have a full review with picture up this week. Did one of the photographers take your pic? If so I can let you know when they are up. Thanks, Kia Lorena on 21 July, 2016 at 09:52 Reply yes they did 🙂 Many thanks John Tripp on 21 August, 2016 at 14:30 Reply A compilation would be separate tracks, this is a continuous mix. Not useful for any DJ’s or anyone wanting individual songs. admin on 23 August, 2016 at 00:26 Reply We would love to be able to provide single tracks but as we are giving this away for free the stipulation and licence agreement with the record labels requires that the tracks we compile are in a single track. If we were selling this we could of course give you single track but we are giving it away for free. You can purchase many of the tracks on Juno, Amazon or Itunes and sometimes some of the tracks we include are free to download on the artists Soundcloud pages Graeme Duncan on 22 August, 2016 at 21:36 Reply Is it possible to get earlier volumes? admin on 23 August, 2016 at 00:30 Reply Hi Graeme, unfortunately due to our agreement with the record labels the mixes are only allowed to be available for download for 1 week only. However now that you have signed up for the mailing list you will never miss another one. We have also just launched a new section of the website dedicated to DJ mixes there are 4 to start and there will be a new one each Monday. These are streaming only but will remain online (on the top navigation bar of the website click “DJs”) Hope you enjoy! Rhoda on 24 August, 2016 at 18:57 Reply You say: “…imported from Cuba during the slave trade.” Please consider which way the slave trade flowed – it was African rhythms that were exported to the west… Tashan on 13 September, 2016 at 15:35 Reply Hi Rhoda, It was more the music form of Sokous that was influenced by Cuban music i.e 2 sections, but indeed Sokous was imported to Cuba rather than from, my mistake! Sam Sinha on 31 August, 2016 at 00:28 Reply Lovely descriptive review and now I’m enjoying the album! Thank you! Randall on 5 October, 2016 at 00:16 Reply This sounds awesome. I love Cumbia Volcadora. Can’t wait to download the record and listen to more. they must be amazing live band. admin on 5 October, 2016 at 09:21 Reply Hi Randall, thanks for leaving a comment, If you like Cumbia have you heard your playlist? http://www.rhythmpassport.com/playlists/styles/your-ticket-to-cumbia/ Deborah on 8 October, 2016 at 20:58 Reply Inna Modja is a breath of fresh air! A versatile and genuine musician, an acitivist, a proud African woman… What more could I ask for? Mali is one of my favourite countries in West Africa, it’s rich musical culture being one of the primary reasons. Great interview. Maxine on 18 October, 2016 at 20:06 Reply I look forward to seeing Osibisa perform again. The last time I saw them live was at the Battersea arts Centre when the did a series for Sunday afternoon Jazz. Does anyone have pictures of them then. This was approximately 15 years ago? Marcelo santos de paula on 25 October, 2016 at 13:20 Reply muito bom o site e a compilação. Marie C Hamelle on 14 November, 2016 at 14:38 Reply Sona is a wonderful musician and composer who is playing major festivals all over the world.

Excelente banda Argentina!! Saludos desde Necochea, Buenos Aires, Argentína! Isaac Iorpine Yua, Abuja - Nigeria on 15 June, 2017 at 19:37 Reply I was young when ‘Ah Ndiya’ was released. My father brought the song home, after his stay in northern Nigeria where the song was a hit. Till date, some northern Nigerians assume the song is from one of the many ethnic groups there. Sangare is indeed a jewel from Mali. Senan on 6 June, 2020 at 23:34 Reply Hello Isaac. Yes, Oumou Sangaré is truly a jewel from Mali. She is Wassoulou, which is actually a dialect of the Fula or Fulani language. That is why she enjoys such following in northern Nigeria where’s there’s a very large number of Fulani speakers. clava on 8 August, 2017 at 15:30 Reply Today is August 8th, but i can’t download album ( nina rocha miranda on 4 September, 2017 at 14:13 Reply What beautiful writing! Particularly the last paragraph, like bossa nova lyrics ! tega ebe on 11 September, 2017 at 13:28 Reply I have always loved her music. What really attracted me to her songs so much, was the completeness of her song (moussoulou)which I heard on air way back in 1995.I said to myself after hearing the song,that this singer is just too good to ignore. Consuelo Sedano on 27 September, 2017 at 23:46 Reply Sergio you are an artist that will live on and on similar to the composers whose music you so admirably played this past Saturday September 23, 2017 at the Getty Center, Museum Courtyard. The Omnipotent has bestowed upon you enviable gifts. I had the fortune of being a witness sharing your talent. With this sincere note of congratulations I would like to introduce yours truly. I am a singer/composer, my professional stage career began years ago performing the songs of all the composers you represented in your concert. When I heard you, it occurred to me, in keeping with today’s view of including “yesterday’s children” in the entertainment field, if you ever consider including a Spanish (and English) yesterday’s singer/performer, I am at your disposition. If you would like a detailed bio and my compositions I will be privileged to send them to you. Thank you. Your forever admirer. Consuelo Sedano Claire on 17 November, 2017 at 08:26 Reply I was there… he was great but the sound was diabolical… left half way through, no point being there if its just a load of inaudible noise… gutted Count Drachma on 3 January, 2018 at 18:57 Reply Fabulous music – loved the review too Ben Murphy on 21 February, 2018 at 08:49 Reply This is a first class review. Not a pointless puff piece nor needlessly negative, just an individual’s honest interpretation evocatively expressed. This is a tick, or gold star depending on your schooling. Dima on 27 March, 2018 at 20:20 Reply Thanks! Good sounds! Dan on 20 April, 2018 at 01:24 Reply Hendrix’s shows were usually a big mess if you were looking for smooth showmanship. And too short. But if you were looking for great playing, they were incomparable. I’m going to see Toure’s show on Friday in Albuquerque and looking forward to great playing, even if the production values are not up to Disney’s standards. Amanda on 12 May, 2018 at 11:04 Reply I defy anyone not to dance or just sing along to this! Great mix, I’m loving it! Some one on 31 August, 2018 at 01:15 Reply This album is an absolute masterpiece ! Geoff Allen on 11 September, 2018 at 17:50 Reply Impressive review. Alan Cook on 12 November, 2018 at 10:15 Reply I’ve been listening to this album for 15 years now, and it still moves me now in 2018. I would go so far as to say, if I had to take just one album to the grave and listen to for eternity, Grit would make the final cut of.. maybe three albums? It might even be the one! jeremy pearce on 21 November, 2018 at 16:04 Reply I am so glad that Rhythm Passport got their shit together and started to compile these samplers .I’ve got most of them It’s a work in progress and as far as I am concerned a work well done .Keep up the good work Duncan Noble on 8 January, 2019 at 11:53 Reply Looks like you may have an error in your headline.

Crisp , driving, hypnotic, deep EPIC! DJ Jonathan E. on 6 April, 2020 at 19:12 Reply Manu Dibango’s significance as a musician and global cultural figure in the second half of the twentieth century was rivaled only by Bob Marley and Fela Kuti. The importance of his work and art cannot be overstated. We are fortunate that so many of his recordings continue to be available, but after over forty years of collecting his musics I still find wonderful gems hidden in corners. His earliest work before “Soul Makossa” is well worth searching for if you’re more used to his later recordings. Thanks for the personal reflections from Muntu Valdo.
