Somali Sounds Mogadishu-Djibuti

“…the archive… transport[s] our hearts and minds to Mogadishu of the 1970s and 1980s, when the coastal capital glistened as the ‘Pearl of the Indian Ocean,’ when wine and cosmopolitanism flowed freely…”
“This music was never made available for mass release. As a result, most of it has never been heard outside Somalia and the immediate region.”
Something remarkable has taken place in the last few years: Somalia has reasserted itself.
Indeed, challenges still remain—and they are grave. But we should not discount how far Somalia and Somali people have come from two decades of civil war, and current ongoing hardships.

The Somali diaspora in North America, Europe, the Middle East, and elsewhere in East Africa have used the digital tools their disposal—namely YouTube and blogs—to upload their collections. This cultural assertion is a cornerstone of the Somali revival.

In 2015, Berlin-based researched and collector Nicolas Sheikholeslami nimbly scoured the Somali niches of the internet to compile Au Revoir Mogadishu Vol.1, a viral mixtape of Somali music from before the war.

http://www.aurovilleradio.org/au-revoir-mogadishu/

Made speechless by the mixtape’s other-worldly sounds, Ostinato Records and Sheikholeslami traveled to the Horn of Africa after catching word of an archive of over 10,000 cassettes and reels, painstakingly preserved through the war by intrepid radio operators and dedicated vanguards of Somali culture. What we discovered is difficult to articulate. But what the music revealed was an untold history of the Somali music belt, which stretches from Djibouti to Hargeisa, all the way down to Mogadishu. Somali culture transcends artificial borders and groupings.
For the last year, from Minnesota to Dubai, we have tracked down the musicians, songwriters, composers, former government bureaucrats, and quirky personalities that colored Somali music life.

A full-fledged compilation album of the best cuts we discovered in this archive is slated for release this year exclusively on Ostinato Records.

But because we could not wait to share what we have been reveling in, we have put together a little taste of one of the most hidden music cultures in the world. The sound quality of this recorded material also bear the scars of war, and you are hearing it in the same shape as we found it.

Orchestra Baobab

Life in Senegal has a soundtrack, and the Senegalese sound unmistakably has a Latin vibe. By tracing the bloodlines of slavery, arching from Gorée Island off the coast of Senegal, to North America, South America and the Caribbean, it is possible to begin to understand the long history in the relationship between Senegalese and Cuban music. Where people go, culture follows and where there is culture, there is the song that carries the story of its people.
Music in Senegal, with its strong structure of Latin flavor, continues to evolve with new musicians joining the international circuit every year.
Despite the differences in cultures, the music should feel like home to you. It’s the sadness, happiness, hopes and dreams that are a part of every human, a sense of longing and belonging that traveled throughout history and has become the sound of almost everything you hear on the radio and television. Orchestra Baobab is that sound directly from its source, a musical melting pot with the organic ingredients providing an undeniable flavor.
We are featuring in the beginning two songs from album to be released on 31st of March 2017 Tribute to Ndiouga Dieng….continuing with their early years…. Pirates Choice, Specialist in All Styles , Made in Dakar …

Truba, Bregovic and Gyspys

The village of Gu?a has gained world fame owing to its Assembly of Trumpet Players, the largest trumpet event on the planet. The love of the people of Draga?evo for music, especially for the trumpet, began in the rule of Prince Miloš Obrenovi?, who ordered the formation of the first military band in 1831. From then until now the trumpet has reigned here uninterrupted while woodwind instruments, in keeping with the customs, warm the soul of its population.

This musical edition features as well well known Goran Bregovic with his collaborations …. and some gypsy music.

Courage outside, peace inside and a quiet unshakable trust in the Divine’s Grace. -The Mother19 May 1933

frequency of the week – ABUNDANCE
Everything we need in life on Earth has been created for us in abundance. We often have difficulty accepting this, because we are prone to think in terms of lack. We cling onto the idea of security because we are afraid of having nothing. Energy is everywhere and everlasting.

Do not restrict yourself by thinking too small, because with the proper intentions everything is possible. You just need to believe.

The frequency of Abundance shows you that you already have everything you need to realise your dreams, no matter how big your ambitions are.

Lovers Rock 1

Lovers rock is a style of reggae music noted for its romantic sound and content. While love songs had been an important part of reggae since the late 1960s, the style was given a greater focus and a name in London in the mid-1970s.[1] Despite the name, lovers rock is not a rock subgenre or related to it.
