Celebrated Malian songwriter and guitarist Afel Bocoum will release his new studio album ‘Lindé’ through World Circuit Records on 4th September.
The first single taken from the record, titled ‘Avion’, is a playful and optimistic tribute to air travel. The song really does ‘take off’, soaring skywards on a beat that’s close to Congolese soukous, with the guitars of Mamadou Kelly, Oumar Konaté and Lamine Soumano providing sweet and melodic propulsion.
From Al-Qasar’s new EP Miraj مراج – mixed by Chris Rakestraw (Megadeth, Motörhead…).
Canadian producer / musician Poirier collaborates with Montréal-based Mozambican artist Samito, mixing African and Caribbean rhythms.
