Chart positions

This show was 17th in the global world music chart, 32nd in the global world chart, 34th in the global alternative chart and 78th in the global funk chart.

brand new Nightshop show #56, broadcasted during December on Radio Campus Bxl and streamed via Groovalizacion Radio. 2 songs of the day; reissued classic Nubian funk songs by Ali Hassan Kuban (southern Egypt) and a nice long qawwali sufi song by young Pakistani-Californian ensemble Fanna-Fi-Allah. We got 3 albums of the month to close the year: the new album ‘Valimbilo’ by Madagascar band Damily, an amazing trancedental ‘Tsapiky’ rock burner straight into the yearly top 10. Also the new EP ‘Liboso’ by Congolese/French group KOKOKO! with their electronic scrap metal compositions for underground dancefloors. An extra album of the month is the special compilation and research project Nouvelle Ambiance by Hugo Mendez, collecting the best African diaspora productions from Paris in the 80’s between soukous, zouk, bikutsi and more. Closing the show as always is our monthly Agenda + a few Soundclash bass tunes from tropical south. Download here:

Is that tracklist in the right order. I think the first two were in reverse order. And how do I know? Cos I checked and listened cos these are some sweet jams.
