Podcast: Radio Mukambo #510 – Behind the Groove

This week The Selenites Band takes us Behind the Mask to discover their original compositions where Ethiopian music of “Swinging Addis” encounter kraütrock, psychedelic music and afro-jazz, made in France.

We also discover more tracks from the second Global Afrobeat Movement compilation, out on NYP Records, including He K Tombe from Mexico, Haitch (Nigeria) & Rhabdomantic Orchestra (Italy) & a Makala remix of a Fela Kuti classic.

The second part of the podcast takes us into global bass with Nihiloxica (Uganda), K’boko (Brazil), IKOQWE (Angola/Portugal) & Spoek Mathambo (South Africa).
