Hi Folks! Happy New Year!

Here's disc two of an eclectic sampling of sounds from all 53 countries of Africa. It was quite an educative adventure, and turned out some bitchin' mixes, I do believe. Thanks to the incredible blogs,,,,, and
Another shout out to the Smithsonian's for providing a conucopia of field recordings as mp3 downloads.




Oops. Two Ivory Coasts: Manou Gallo 's Amagnany must go. Sorry! Mauritius and Rodrigues slipped in at 15 and 16.

This is a fantastic idea and if this is even half as great as the first volume, it's totally worthwhile.

Smithsonian, eh? I imagine they have recordings from all over the world, so are there plans to continue your conquest of the world, one continent at a time?

Stunning. I love it when a mix appears and I know nothing on it. Great work.

What a killer listen! Excellent, Mike.
It may be a coincidence, but my favorites were the ones from the Portuguese-speaking countries (Angola, G-B, Mozambique, CV) which seem to share some musical notions with Brazilian music. Anyway, exotic and unusual stuff all the way thru. Great project.

I took this home with me last night so I could listen while I paid my bills and balanced my checkbook. this is my favorite series ever, I swear. just incredible. loved that Libya track, the Benin and Zanzibar tracks too. Knew the Seychelles tune would be a favorite as soon as I heard the organ start to play, and another favorite was from Senegal, a song that seems to include a trio of squeaking mice on backing vocals. great stuff!
