Dizzy Mandjeku & Alé Kumá Canción De Amor Y Muerte De Palenque À Matongé

Uniting Colombian and Congolese musicians, De Palenque à Matongé, de project of Dizzy Mandjeku and Alé Kumá, revives and re-interprets the historical connection between two musical traditions that have travelled back and forth between the New World and the African Motherland. https://www.womex.com/virtual/zephyrus_music_vzw/dizzy_mandjeku_ale

Founded in 2002 by Leonardo Gomez Jattín as a platform for research and exploitation of the Afro-Colombian musical culture, Alé Kumá focuses on the oral tradition, working with singers from all regions – the pacific coast, the amazone (sic), the countryside and the eastern departments.

In the Congolese rumba movement, the guitarist Dizzy Mandjeku is considered a living legend. Before he became a member of the renowned Orchestre OK Jazz, directed by Franco Luambo Makiadi in the 60’s and 70’s, Dizzy had already formed numerous bands in his home country.

Blick Bassy Mpodol 1958

Bassy was born in Mintaba, Cameroon, one of 21 offspring from his father, a police chief.[1] His mother was the youngest of his father’s three wives. He began singing at the age of three, waking up at 5am everyday to rehearse with the other children of the village. [Wikipedia]

Playing throughout France from now to March

“1958 is more of a concept work. It’s dedicated to the memory of one of Bassy’s political heroes, Ruben Um Nyobé, the anti-colonial leader who addressed the United Nations, demanding independence for Cameroon, and was killed by French forces in September 1958.” The Guardian

Emily Wurramara Black Smoke Milyakburra

Emily Wurramara (website) is an indigenous Australian indie-pop and roots artist who shot to fame with her 2016 six-song EP, ‘Black Smoke‘. Rooted in her personal history and indigenous heritage, Wurramara’s songwriting is beautiful and visceral, leading listeners to a place of tactility; her vocals layered, soft and encircling. Singing in both English and Anindilyakwa (the traditional language of her home on Groote Eylandt, Northern Territory), Wurramara is a prime example of contemporary indigenous Australian music at its finest. (From Culture Trip)

Lonely Boys The Hunter The Hunter – EP

(Facebook)

Chosen as Queens of the Stone Age’s (QOTSA) support act for Splendour in the Grass 2017, this bush-punk indigenous band have swiftly stepped into the spotlight. Amusingly, Lonely Boys admit they had never even heard of QOTSA until after they had been selected, not that deterred the American rock band or the millions of listeners tuning in. Since, they’ve been wooing the Aussie and international music scene with their playful, vibrant, dance-floor-ready beats. (From Culture Trip)

Su Soley Zamansız Aşk Zamansız Aşk – Single

Born in Ankara this Turkish musician and performer has at least 4 albums already. This is her new single.

 

I’ll add more notes if possible.
