Afro Soul Descarga
Sometimes a virtual discovery can feel as real as any record store find. Today I found a bevy of radio sets from Afro Soul Descarga. It's cool that the D.J. -- James Stewart of RAJE in France -- is able to share the whole playlist so easily via Soundcloud waveform. Set # 10, below, is two hours of rare music, most of which you wouldn't find elsewhere.
Part 1 - track 6. (37:20) Segun Bucknor plays "La La La Acoustic" with some pretty wild organ sounds from Nigeria.
Part 2 - track 9. (101:00) Sun Ra's "Nuclear War" is a classic anti-proliferation anthem: "If they push that button, your ass gotta go...watcha gonna do without your ass?" Good question.
Part 2 - track 10. (110:35) These four or five poems by Langston Hughes with punctuation by Charlie Mingus and co. are real swell, too. Said Hughes, "Dig and be dug in return."
