This Week’s Featured Album

CONGADAR – Chora N’goma I Clipe Oficial

From Brazil, Congadar explore the relationships between the people and music of South America and Africa. In their second album Chora N’Goma the seven piece bring together deep harmonics, African and Brazilian rhythms, and edgy rock guitar. You can see and hear from the clip above how they mix their music derived from the inherited culture of the enslaved people taken from west Africa and transported to America and the indigenous music of Brazil.

This is how they describe themselves on Bandcamp:

“Congadar performs a new language of music based by fusion of Congado (a traditional folkloric from Brazil) with the rock. The band search the roots of Brazilian culture with strong link with cultural identity of afroculture.

“The sounds of the band explores values the Africa’s black culture, in three voices mixed with the cross beat of the “caixa”, drums, bass and guitar.”

There are 5 tracks on the show starting with the two songs that open the album.

Other music on the show this week

KeTeKalles & Pascuala Ilabaca y Fauna    Pa’mi

Pascuala Ilabaca [Facebook] is an accordion playing singer from Valparaiso, in Chile and her band is called Fauna. KeTeKalles is a four piece all woman band from – Santiago in Chile – and together they have produced a single Pa’mi. KeTeKalles are no strangers to the show but I hadn’t heard of Pascuala Ilabaca. They played Greenbelt in 2015.

Şatellites & Riff Cohen – Olurmu Dersin

They play Anatolian rock and Turkish psychedelic            and like another band who feature on the show – Altan Gun, they are not from Turkey – they don’t live in Istanbul. Şatellites are from Tel Aviv – Altun Gun are based in Amsterdam.

“The group comprises talented vocalist Yuli Shafriri on the synth; Itamar Klüger on the baglama & bouzouki; Ariel Harrosh on the bass, and Azriel ‘Raz’ Man on the drums.

“The band plays anything from Anatolian rock to vintage psych and spacey grooves. They describe their sound as retro-fresh psych à la Turk, a musical “laboratory” lost somewhere between the mysterious alleys of 70’s Istanbul and the scorching sun and crystal blue sea of Jaffa-Tel Aviv, 2020.” Batov Records


Pyhä veri vuotaa is a particularly eccentric album from Pelkkä Poutanen. Often when I say “eccentric” what I really mean is “inaccessible” or “difficult” music. This album isn’t. Petra Poutanen is a Finish artist who plays with the band UTU, but as a solo performer she goes by Pelkkä Poutanen – Just Poutanen –

Her album  is also on Bandcamp.
