Tervehdys kaikille uutiskirjeen uusille lukijoille Suomessa! And to you, a good day! I’m keeping it short today. Boots to polish and bags to pack. So let’s get on with it.

Featured Album: Youssou N’Dour & Étoile de Dakar Badou Immigrés. By the time Youssou N’Dour released Immigrés, he had already put out 14 cassettes and this was to be his 6th vinyl album (recorded in 1984 and first released as a cassette album). This is the album that introduced him to a wider audience beyond Africa with its 1988 release in France and UK.

“N’Dour is one of the most celebrated African musicians in history. His mix of traditional Senegalese mbalax with eclectic influences ranging from Cuban rumba to hip hop, jazz, and soul has won him an international fan base of millions. In the West, N’Dour has collaborated with Peter Gabriel, Axelle Red, Sting, Alan Stivell, Bran Van 3000, Neneh Cherry, Wyclef Jean, Paul Simon, Bruce Springsteen, Tracy Chapman, James Newton Howard, Branford Marsalis, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Dido, Lou Reed, Bruce Cockburn, and others.”


Usually I play four tracks from each featured album. This time there are only 4 tracks – so I’m playing the full album – two tracks in each hour.

In the meantime, here’s the classic from Youssou N’Dour – 7 Seconds with Neneh Cherry

What’s New? Mon Laferte has a new single, Algo Es Mejor, and a new album on the way …

Orquesta Akokán have a new album on the way, too. I’ll be playing Mi Conga Es De Akokán, one of three tracks available from 16 Rayos in advance.

Here’s an introduction to Orquesta Akokán.

If you are more inclined toward folk and modern folk music there are some very tasty cuts:

There’s Talisk

There’s Lillebjørn Nilsen & Andy Irvine recorded live in Telemark (sorry, no video of that)

There’s You Are Wolf (here’s video of a different song to the one I’m playing)

And …

And more from Fanfare Ciocărlia. Here they are 7 years ago …
