AUGUST 6 ! -IN AN OLYMPIC STATE OF MIND -part II
Yes, yes, we're still in it! Remember last week? The Olympics just started and I was all excited, playing tunes from different places. It's even worse now!! Hahaa. I'm gonna be sad when the games are over, for real.
BUT, we still have some days to go. I'm playing tunes from Ethiopia, Mali, Puerto Rico (with no Olympic medals, but bad ass musicians), tunes from the US, Jamaica (Of course.. I mean.. Usain Bolt!)
but I also chose some tracks with titles referring to countries. Like David Sanchez, Stefon Harris & Christian Scott -'Congo', Frank Ocean -'Sierra Leone', Bob Marley -'Zimbabwe'.
Love the Frank Ocean by the way. That's a sexy tune.
Think my favorites in this list gotta be Mulatu Astatke's Yekermo Sew (the Te'Amir Remix) , Don't be Blue by Jackie & Roy (great track!) & no doubt; IF SO.. by the multi talented Georgia Ann Muldrow. That's 1 to play LOUD!!
Hope u enjoy & catch u all nxt week
