REPOST - Global Mix 1

A mix of musical styles though predominantly north African.
After opening aptly on this Sunday morning with Baaba Maal's 'Call to Prayer' we find ourselves 'tranceported' by music from both the mountains and medinas of Maroc, by the psychedelic sounds coming from the Congo in the mid seventies and by the present-time desert blues of Tinariwen and Group Inerane.
From Algeria by way of Paris to the Ju-Ju lands of Nigeria.
From London to New York via Turkey.
Also featuring those bass-masters Jah Wobble & Bill (Have Bass Will Travel) Laswell.

If this compilation doesn't want to make you dance barefoot under the sky then you are already dead.

It can be got from here.
Left click on picture above for list of featured performers.

As an extra bonus you can get Tinariwen's performance from Womad of 2004 here.
