This week Radio Mukambo focuses on two Japanese projects: Tokyo-based ten-piece wild Japanese folk band Minyo Crusaders joins forces with Colombian cumbia radicals Frente Cumbiero on the EP “Minyo Cumbiero” (on Mais Um Discos), while Japanese afrobeat rockers Stepak Takraw do it without horns on the EP “Livyatan” (on Soul Garden Records).
We also check out accordion virtuoso Carmelo Torres infusing the Colombian folklore with psychedelic surf music, electric guitars and a powerful rhythm section on a 7″ vinyl (on Galletas Bailables) and the colleboration between the Brazilian Zé Bigode Orquestra and dub producer Buguinha Dub on the EP “Viva Dub”.
Last but not least, three events this week.
One virtual: African Women’s Day Friday on the Global Afrobeat Movement Facebook page.
