Morning Meghan! The journey continues!

Lurv Cape Verde sounds. Morning Meghan. I'm only here for the first hour, crazy day awaits!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/17/13 6:04am Meghan:

hehe.... it's a very worldly day today!
Avatar Thu. 10/17/13 6:04am Matt from Springfield:

Quite a bit of coastal rhythms today! That atmosphere produced these mellow sounds, I presume!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/17/13 6:06am Meghan:

Oh no crazy days in a good way or bad? Hopefully good... though bad if you miss 2 hours!

Portuguese influence too with the guitar style.
Avatar    Thu. 10/17/13 6:09am Dave B:

Lotsa meetings and the company Service Awards Dinner tonight.

Not that it has anything to do with Cape Verde, but the other day I noticed this written on the signs around AMNH "Pa fimen nan pak la". Took me a little bit to decipher. Hatian Creole for "no smoking in the park" Targeting all the stroller nannies I guess

Morning Sem! Happy sounds for the morning, right?

Hi there, Matt.
Meghan: The rhythms sure are perky. If we only understood the languages...

Morning Meghan,another Thursday morning filled with joyous African beat's...perfect.
Avatar Thu. 10/17/13 6:41am Rob W:

Great song by Star Band. Cuban style music was really popular in Senegal (and Congo and other parts of West and Central Africa) mid-century... then Senegalese pop music evolved into more of its own distnict style, particularly Youssou N'Dour's mbalax; in fact you can kinda follow that progression in his music thanks to various reissue cds. (Youssou in fact started his career with the Star Band as a teenager.) In recent years there's been a bit of a Latin music retro-revival in African music. In particular, 1970s band Orch. Baobab is a Latin-tinged Senegalese group that has had big revival and toured North America and Europe in recent years.
Avatar    Thu. 10/17/13 6:47am Dave B:

To see how far the Senegalese influence spread, check out Japan's "Kingdom Afrocks"

Morning DOM! Walking music for Dave! Have a good Dave..... good luck!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/17/13 7:21am Meghan:

Sorry, wrong disc machine got pressed.... THIS is the correct song.... ahead of myself. Was enjoying too much to notice right away!
  Thu. 10/17/13 7:25am Dave B:

These tunes brighten up an otherwise grey morning
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/17/13 7:27am Meghan:

a grey one huh? That is the joys of leaving early in the morning, it's still dark out. Though there were a couple walking down the street fighting at 5 am....
  Thu. 10/17/13 7:32am Marmalade Kitty:

A friend of mine makes and sells Kora imported from Gambia as well as music teacher..
He is a known as "Griot" or "folk" musician
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/17/13 7:34am Meghan:

Oh nice! Yeah kora is big all around this area. It's pretty great.
  Thu. 10/17/13 7:35am Rob W:

Thanks Dave B for year earlier tip on "Kingdom Afrocks" - I'll check that out!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/17/13 7:37am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- is not a 'Griot' also a story-teller - almost a traditional history-keeper? Perhaps there are sort-of 'degrees' of it - &/or somewhat different meanings...
  Thu. 10/17/13 7:37am Marmalade Kitty:

Hello Rob!
Avatar Thu. 10/17/13 7:37am Rob W:

I was mentioning bands from Sierra Leone last week and forgot about our own nearby outfit, Janka Nabay and the Bubu Gang (he's from Sierra Leone and based in DC, the rest of the band is American kids based in Brooklyn, but they do a good job playing the music). Also Sierra Leone All-Stars of course...
Avatar Thu. 10/17/13 7:38am Rob W:

Hi Marmalade Kitty and bye, have to run, everyone enjoy the show and show your support for Underwater Theme Park!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/17/13 7:39am Meghan:

Good thing I didn't make it all the way to Sierra Leone yet! Thanks for the tip!

Hey everyone!

At this time tomorrow, I'll be in my home city, waiting for Yo La Tengo to play.

btw: - despite hiccups, Thanks Meghan for generally being (now I think of it? am I right?) on top of the Playlist (relative to coughcough some perhaps) so one knows what one is listening to & can keep track of what one is ☆ing.

...woudn't be surprised if one could find an African Music Stream too...there are a couple Indian ones I bookmarked on my old computer - need to get on that...

Thx (other) Dave B. ! - I knew it...
...I just sort of haven't come to terms w/ Archives yet! I guess live streams make me feel more in touch w/ the world in real time, or that I'm not missing something, or some silly thing (??)...
Avatar    Thu. 10/17/13 8:29am Dave B:

I can dig it.

Side note for me, the gateway song that pointed me down the afro-polyrhythm road was "I Zimbra" from Talking Heads back in Junior High.
  Thu. 10/17/13 8:33am Marmalade Kitty:

Nice jams! At live performances..Those drums can be like fire crackers going off! serious earplugz!
Avatar Thu. 10/17/13 8:33am Sem Chumbo:

Dave B: there was something about repeated listenings to "My Life in the Bush of Ghosts" which opened my mind to African rhythms. Funny you should mention Talking Heads...
