Gee whiz, how time flies when one is having fun.

I apologize for the delay in posting the tracks that were meant to go up this week.

So, no more waiting. Here we go.

From African Serenades Vol 46 – Cheeku’s TanZam Express, here is Orchestra Mos Mos

You can find some more Orchestra Mos Mos over at Matsuli if you want some.

I thought about this a little and decided to post both versions of Infidelite Mado: the first is by the Grand Maestro himself while the second is from Soukous Stars with Malage.

In the spirit of keeping this thing eclectic, here is a bit of a curve from a CD of tunes named Africando

And before we close out for the day, a track that has been requested in emails over and over from a group I have posted about before, from Jamnazi Africa of I’m not sober fame, here is yet another killer track, Riziki.

Ja-Mnazi Afrika  Ja-Mnazi Afrika

While this track has been up before, everyone can;t get enough.

If you want to find out what playing lead guitar like you mean it is all about, then bust a move and skip in about 7m04seconds in the track.

There is a fella waiting to there to school you.

Actually, more like there is a well programmed synth there waiting to school you …

No track of the week this week.

And before I go, let me point you to a site that you should be trawling if you are not already. Check out Sea never run dry. While you are there, be sure to start with the track Duniani Mateso (In this world, suffering) that you can find in this post.

Finally, , if you are new to the site or trying to figure out how to do something, please read this post.
