Roots World

Roots World radio 195

From Tatar-Australia to Congo-America

On the 195th edition of RootsWorld, we’ll visit the dark fairy tales of Zulya and the Children of the Underground, the rhythm and reeds of NY’s Hazmat Modine, Welsh innovators 9Bach and The Afro-Haitian Experimental Orchestra. We’ll listen to a couple of classic sounds from the 80s, with Hank Jones, Cheik-Tidane Seck and the Mandinkas and some South African horns featuring a 1989 recording by Barney Rachabane. We’ll also hear some new music from Congolese guitarist and song writer Siama Matunzungidi (now based in the Minneapolis-St Paul ) and a fusion of East and further East with Iraqi oud player Rahim AlHaj and Indian sarod player Amjad Ali Khan
