Channel 4 Athletics 2011

Playing tracks by

The Kenyan Boys CHoir, Bomas Of Kenya, Goeffrey Oryema, Mali Music, Gramophonedzie and more.

To do my selection I have start my research on Usain and As an African athlete it was normal to start my selection with two music from Kenyan artist to evoke the origine of Usain.
I have also research for tracks which I could visualise images of Usain doing is training on it but also, I wanted to have a little twist between Europe and Africa culture. this, to make them understandable by a wilder public ('Ye Ye Ye' from Geoffrey Oryema and 'Makelekele' from Mali Music (Damon Albarn charity project)).
Usain is running and fighting to be the winner but also there is a thought of pleasure, courage and frustration. Using dance/house music was direct decision due to the beat and tempo. The track 'Street lady', 'Natural Instinct' and 'Atom Funk' represent well all these feeling.
Finally to make this soundtrack perfect, I selected an other hybrid between the two continent music called 'Les Oiseaux' (The Birds in English). It represent the peace after the fight but also dreams and life.
