Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:47pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Coincidentally, June 26, 2019, was the Mdou Moctar show at Monty Hall.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:48pm Meghan:

Oh was it?! I was there! haha. Seems appropriate!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:48pm Meghan:

Though I don't have any of his stuff in this show today! Sooo much great African music, so little time!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:50pm Stanley:

Hi Meghan. Time for me to hit the floor.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51pm Doug Schulkind:

Looove this Sir Shina track!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:53pm spodiodi:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:06pm Meghan:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:07pm chresti:

What's a good stretch for dancing to this? Like the one in the photo?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:07pm Bas NL:

I love the Sahara Blues.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:08pm Meghan:

lots of leg stretches... and ones for the hip! and back! and a cane to help me back up! hahaha
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:19pm chresti:

The feet too..neck,..
  4:23pm Jefff:

Dance baby dance!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:24pm spodiodi:

Roger Damawuzan's voice (!) love it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:25pm chresti:

I tend to jump in and start moving, forgetting my body is 62 and will punish me for it later.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:26pm Meghan:

hahaha, yeah, but it means you are alive! all of it! Embrace and love it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:26pm Bas NL:

That's the spirit, chresti! ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:27pm Meghan:

Spodiodi- obviously very influenced by James Brown, when he came and performed there. He's from Togo, but both Togo and Benin have that great scream to their stuff!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:27pm Meghan:

Slow dance.... everyone, slow dance time. Grab a drink and relax! Sway!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:29pm Michael 98145:

feel it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:32pm Meghan:

ahhhh, a lovely gin and tonic has been made.... here we go!

Cheers Meghan. Here's to the weekend.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:34pm Bas NL:

G & T's! Mjum, mjum, mjum!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:34pm chresti:

Cheers Stanley.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:34pm Stanley:

This track has 23 clickies. I can understand why.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:35pm Julie:

Good god I barely know what day it is much less what time
Avatar 4:35pm northguineahills:

I was about to visit friends and my wife in Brooklyn, but seeing I'm in FL, that's not happening now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:36pm Julie:

if only we had the chance to go out dancing in africa
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:36pm chresti:

FL's locked out of NY?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:36pm Meghan:

If only we could really go out in Africa! We didn't get much city time!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:36pm Julie:

FL and TX I believe
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:37pm Meghan:

if you visit NY, NJ or CT, you are required to do a 14 day quarantine
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:37pm Julie:

We had some in SA at least!
Avatar 4:37pm northguineahills:

aye, the governors of NY/NJ/CT have put a 14 day quarentine on FL and 8 other states. (I was only going to go for 5 days.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:37pm Sean d:

Work almost over!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:38pm Sean d:

But welcome to PA
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:38pm Meghan:

Julie- only because there was fog and the view was obscured! haha
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:38pm Stanlé:

Hi Julie. I danced my way across Africa back in the day. Everywhere you went there was music of some sort.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:39pm Julie:

I bet! That sounds much fun.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:40pm Meghan:

We needed to go to Lagos... that is where the dancing happens!
Avatar 4:41pm northguineahills:

Wearing a mask in FL weather is a lot of fun (but here it really is a political stance. In more liberal settings, Orlando, Gainesville, and near downtown Jax, you'll see them, outside of said locations I mentioned, you'll get the side-eye wearing the mask, as they are rate). Outside of family, I can't remember the last time I've been in a social setting w/ more then 3 people.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:41pm spodiodi:

Meghan @4:27 -- i could tell! (and just noticed the album title (hah!))
great stuff. thanks for the infos (again) :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:41pm chresti:

My ex and his wife usually go live at the house in France for 6 months of the year, they have to have permanent residence status on their house to be allowed back in, they're in Los Angeles.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:41pm spodiodi:

hi Julie, NGH!
Avatar 4:42pm northguineahills:

I'm almost out of my Nigerian curry powder. I've only found one decent African market in FL.
Avatar 4:42pm βrian:

Sipping Sancerre through my mask, in tribute to Meghan. (Welcome back!)
Avatar 4:42pm northguineahills:

holas, spodiodi!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:43pm spodiodi:

all you foodies would probably raise an eyebrow to my very regular diet :)
Avatar 4:43pm βrian:

@NGH: Do you know what's in the blend? Penzey's is taking orders now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:44pm Stanlé:

Hi ngh. The hootest food I have eaten was in corner shacks in Nairobi. Ugali (maize) and beef stew. They even give you a side plate of green chillies as a 'cooler'
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:44pm Julie:

hey spodi!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:44pm Stanlé:

"hootest", yeah why not!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:45pm spodiodi:

cheers, βrian
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:45pm spodiodi:

why the heck not
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:45pm Bas NL:

Had my first face-mask-required train ride yesterday. People complied readily, except for teen-aged kids..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:46pm Meghan:

hahaha. hootest.... love it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:46pm chresti:

Stanle, thats what I thought.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:46pm Meghan:

Chin chin βrian!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:46pm chresti:

Why the hoot not.
Avatar 4:47pm northguineahills:

I've never had Kenyan cuisine (or much east African outside of Ethiopian/Somali). I'm jealous.

I used to grow carolina reaper and ghost peppers and make my own salsas, so I have decent tolerance for capsaisin.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:47pm spodiodi:

Woodsy the owl agrees
Avatar 4:47pm northguineahills:

Give a hoot, don't pollute (really dating myself).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:48pm spodiodi:

jinx
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:48pm Stanlé:

ngh - I've always regarded you as my go to authority on chilli
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:48pm Meghan:

Kenyan was very much influenced by Indian.... that is what I thought when I was there
Avatar 4:48pm northguineahills:

*shakes tiny fist at spodiodi*!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:48pm chresti:

ngh, you, my son, love hottest peppers
Avatar 4:49pm βrian:

There used to be a very good South African Indian restaurant in Canton, Michigan.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:50pm Stanlé:

Sure, Meghan, especially the roadside snacks - samosas, spicy beans etc. Buit don't forget the British influence - you can easily get fish and chips there.
Avatar 4:51pm northguineahills:

Although Ivoirian, I always thought Stanislas was a curious coincidence of homophonic names, as the only other Stanislas' I've heard of have been Polish.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:51pm chresti:

*and my son
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:51pm spodiodi:

lunchtime (pantstime) at last (still listening)
Avatar 4:52pm northguineahills:

@Meghan: yeah, makes sense, as Kenya, Tanzania, and the Red Sea were highly influenced by the Indian Ocean monsoon traders.
Avatar 4:53pm βrian:

We had planned fish tacos for dinner. Now I'm pondering Senegalese fish tacos ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:53pm Stanlé:

Ah, memories of drinking beer and chewing khat in the afternoons.
Avatar 4:54pm βrian:

Some folks chew the fat, while others chew the khat.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:54pm Meghan:

NGH, so close geographically... Now I want Ethiopian.... and my house currently smells like the pulled pork I'm cooking!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:54pm chresti:

I've always wondered about khat, what's it like?
Avatar 4:55pm northguineahills:

I tried to get the lads at the Yemeni bodega near me in Brooklyn hook me up w/ khat, but they thought I was joking. But they did get me Yemeni cassettes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:56pm Julie:

Drummer stream makes dreams come true!
Avatar 4:56pm northguineahills:

(I've had the same luck w/ bettel nuts)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:59pm Stanlé:

It's a way of like chresti! But hard work considering the amount of chewing to get the required speedy buzz. And a bit fiddly, as you have to carefully with your teeth, peel the skin off the stalks. You get through a big bunch in an afternoon.
Avatar 4:59pm northguineahills:

The same people who complain about wearing masks, are usually the same people who want to tell other people what to do w/ their body (women).
Avatar 4:59pm βrian:

Meghan, did you by chance have any Vergelegen while you were in SA?
Avatar 5:00pm northguineahills:

jealous of your pulled pork (omnivore, but still a noob at cooking meat)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:02pm Stanlé:

ngh - I never got on with the ol' bettel nuts. For starters, in addition to good teeth, you need a load of lime in the gob to get the betel to do it's thing. End up with one messed up mouth.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:03pm chresti:

Ah, so for khat, you need all your teeth. What's the buzz like? Caffeine?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:03pm Stanlé:

lime, as in slake lime
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:04pm Meghan:

βrian- I had Stellenbosch and some Pinotage... and whatever people poured me.... haha. Never got out to the wineries....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:05pm Meghan:

NGH- slow and low... that is the secret. Keep it covered to keep it moist too....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:05pm chresti:

Lime is required for coca leaf chewing as well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:05pm Meghan:

NGH- and it's ready when you can twist a fork in it easily...
Avatar 5:05pm βrian:

I consider pinotage a "high-velocity" wine. I like it ok, I just need it to move fairly rapidly toward the gullet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:06pm Stanlé:

Yes, chresti, similar but somewhat stronger and has the effect of making you talk rubbish.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:07pm Meghan:

βrian- hahaha, yes... it's rather tasty... and not a sipper!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:08pm chresti:

Sounds fun Stanley, does it cause psychosis like meth does?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:11pm Stanlé:

It's a natural thang. Anyway, nowadays I'm strictly liquor, love and laughs.
Avatar 5:11pm northguineahills:

I've heard that khat is near the adderal middle of the caffeine to the blow scale. So, since it's organic, usually only habitual users have to worry about gum disease/cancer.
Avatar 5:13pm northguineahills:

@Stanley: yeah, these days I'm strictly booze and once in a green moon, ganja (maybe once every three months).
Avatar 5:13pm βrian:

"Pass phrase?"
"Liquor, love, and laughter."
"Please enter."

Best comments board.... right atmosphere, time for a refill!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:16pm Stanlé:

Did anyone catch 'Under African Skies', the BBC documentary series forn a few year back? It was terrific.
Avatar 5:17pm WR:

In my neighborhood paan with betal is sold by several street vendors and in a couple of shops. All the ingredients are available in local stores. I often see on the sidewalk or curb the bright red spittle as pictured on wikipedia:
en.wikipedia.org...
I tried it a couple times. Both by buying the paan from a vendor and also bought a box of the "nuts" to try at home. Not to my taste in any way.
Avatar 5:18pm northguineahills:

Well, Meghan's the boss *refills beer*.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:18pm chresti:

I'm strictly herbs, medicinal and psychoactive, gave up the alcohol.
Avatar 5:21pm northguineahills:

@WR: if you don't mind asking, where do you live? I couldn't even find betal nuts in Jackson Hights, Queens (TBF, I only visited there on occasion, and wasn't familiar w/ the the neighborhood).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:21pm Stanlé:

Actually, I was thinking "Africa: A Journey Into Music" with Rita Ray in 2018, not the eighties thing. (Damned khat is messing me up)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:21pm chresti:

Once in a while I'll have a Guinness, or wine with food.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:22pm unpopularfred:

Loving this

Thanks Meghan
Avatar 5:23pm northguineahills:

@Stanley: found it! The whole series is on YouTube (I know what I'm watching tonight)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:23pm Meghan:

I just made myself my favorite Danish cocktail... Aquavit, peet scotch, chestnut liquor, sherry, lemon, sunchoke simple syrup and buttermilk. it's AMAZING
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:23pm Stanlé:

A Nigerian 7.5 per cent Guinness, I hope chresti.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:24pm Meghan:

haha, glad you are enjoying it unpopularfred!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:24pm Stanlé:

Brilliant, ngh. Hope you enjoy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:24pm Meghan:

I had a Russian 7.5 percent... woooh!
Avatar 5:25pm βrian:

That sounds wild, Meghan. A few years back, we made Aquavit Bloody Marys with garden tomato juice. Garnished with Dilly Beans.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:25pm doctorjazz:

Great car company, love the music! Have to say, nobody rushes these grooves!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:25pm Meghan:

I am all about Aquavit bloody mary's! It's the best!!!

74th Street & Roosevelt Ave, area near Jackson Heights in Queens. The paan (betal leaf with other ingredients) vendors are a very regular thing around here. The nuts I bought were from a Ayurveda / religious talisman / book store. I did my experimentation about 15 or more years ago. So have not looked for the nuts since then.

@RRN: To quote a long-ago DJ, "If the good lord didn't want you shake your backside, she wouldn't have given you such a wide and expansive one."

It's all about not caring and getting into your inner self. We are all so self conscious about how we appear to others. Think like a kid. Just get into it and feel free

When the Dead gets noodly, you can be sure the pasta has been in the water just a bit too long.

HUSH YOU Dave B! You know that Grateful Dead is as bad as Rush to me!

Hahaha!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:29pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Considering George Clintons famous observe that Disco was like making love w/ only a single stroke
- might seem that Africans can't do even that w/out some Swing anyhow! :)
Like you can just tell if something is out of N'Orleans - not just like that - but has terroir...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:30pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...threatens to have Polyrhythm despite the form...
Avatar 6:32pm βrian:

What I think of as "disco" really feels kind of clinical to me, so I never understood the nostalgia. I prefer dance music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:32pm Michael 98145:

My better half wanted to know if i was listening to Parliament.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:33pm doctorjazz:

Lots of different stuff got the Disco label.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:34pm doctorjazz:

But these guys got that syncopated 3rd beat, disco was pretty steady 4/4, on the beat.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:34pm Meghan:

hahaha, African disco don't play by disco rules!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:35pm doctorjazz:

Reminds me more of Soca.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:35pm spodiodi:

don't stop the beat, pls

this is one great dance party

you said it, Michael 98145
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:39pm Meghan:

get down with your bad selves! I told you you need to have proper footwear and beverages!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:40pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

3rd & 4th Beat - Soca - saying it better, Thx.
Even here & even then I knew some 'Disco' was just new Funk or Pop - & quite good.
Problem was Disco dominated so totally for what seemed several years. (I always say this stuff when Disco comes up...) & in more rural places like where I was it wasn't People of Coor or Gays or HardDrug users - it was yer Dad wanting to be Travolta. The Squares...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:42pm Meghan:

ewww, yes, that is what I see of disco too. It's funny. But to find stuff that you are like- oh shit, YES! that is the best!
Avatar 6:42pm βrian:

American disco was like supermarket commodity cheese. The disco I like is akin to well-aged funky camembert.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:53pm doctorjazz:

Lots of current dance music sounds to me like reworked disco...it didn't die (just rebranded).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:53pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Dance Music eventually even bred w/ Psych in Rave...
Also always the Drug Theory of Pop History. Disco was Coke - Rave was X... Disco was actually any damn thing - Poppers & all sorts of madness... But we Rawk Stoners abused inhalants too - we were such dumb young pinheads...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:53pm Meghan:

I had to make sure there was a proper disco set!
