Nayda fron Bab L'Bluz: new Moroccan star power

Peter Culshaw’s periodic global music radio update is back, quicker than usual as there is some catching up to do.

Peter Culshaw’s periodic global music radio update is back, quicker than usual as there is some catching up to do. There’s a focus on Ennio Morricone, who died this week - with his amazing range from Westerns to lush soundscapes and experimental hipster 1960s hipster pop. A secondary focus is on re-issued and new Moroccan grooviness - the wonderfully stoned 1970s soundscapes of Abdou El Omari to the hot off the press fabulousness of Bab l’Bluz. Other sizzling new stuff includes a rework of Saint Germain’s “I Want You To Get Together Right Now”(who sampled it from Marlena Shaw in the first place) for our BLM times by Jonja Smith, some Japanese dance music and Palestinian re-works of 1980s Middle-Eastern disco from Tootard. Not to mention some hot toe-tapping Sudanese progressive techno.
