Professor Wouassa is one of Switzerland’s best kept musical treasures. On their second album ‘Grow Yes Yes!’ they get support from Afrobeat legends Seun Kuti & Ebo Taylor. 'Grow Yes Yes' will be released on Matasuna Records on June 30th and is our album of the week at Global Riddims. We highlight some interesting festivals this weekend: Copacobana Festival in Gent with London Afrobeat Collective, Couleur Café in Brussels with Toots & The Maytals & Afrika Festival in Hertme with Dele Sosimi & Dieuf-Dieul de Thiès. We open our show with the fantastic 'The Revolution Will Not Be Televised' of Gil Scott Heron in a Tahira Abayomy Afrobeat version, further new work from La Dinamitaa (Cumbia), Rodrigo Gallardo (Matanza) in Nicola Cruz remix, Kabanjak and we play a track from the compilations ‘Pop Makossa’ (Analog Africa) & ‘Humble Dubbers’ (Melting Records)
