welcome to two hours celebrating African songbirds. any favorites I can play for you tonight?
Coghauler 6:30:15 PM
Oh...Imidiwan Ahi Sigdim by Tinariwen because I can just picture them singing this while riding the camels across the desert. Perfect rhythm.
Matt Moon (host) 6:58:20 PM
I LOVE Tuareg music, and the fact that its set to the rhythm of a camel (one of my fav animals on the planet) is just so perfect.
Bama Dan 7:01:38 PM
This is awesome, Matt. "Blue People" is what I remember. Algeria, Mali and Niger.
Bama Dan 7:04:00 PM
(Tuareg, that is.)
Matt Moon (host) 7:06:37 PM
Yes! There used to be a crew of Tuareg men living in Tucson -- a guitarist, jeweler, and camel whisperer. True story. The guitarist moved back to Niger, I still see the jeweler at the Gem Show, and the camel whisperer has become a close friend. We are talking about organizing an international camel festival in 2023 in West Africa. Save the date :-)
Bama Dan 7:10:23 PM
That is very cool! Have you spent much time in West Africa?
Matt Moon (host) 7:20:42 PM
Not yet. Only Kenya in Mama Africa for me. I had an epic trip planned to Mali and Niger but it was canceled due to increased Taliban activity there. I hope to get there someday -- so much incredible music, culture, architecture and history. And camels!
Ed in Seattle 7:20:53 PM
Wait! Is this a cover of In The Air Tonight?!!
Bama Dan 7:21:43 PM
Would seem to be very different than sub-Saharan Africa...yes.
Bama Dan 7:21:52 PM
I envy you.
Matt Moon (host) 7:22:17 PM
Ed -- you called it!!! Congrats. It's a Senegalese cover of the Phil Collins song. Apparently, Phil used a Senegalese Wolof drum rhythm for that song. So his Senegalese friends took the song back!
Bama Dan 7:22:36 PM
Nice call, Ed. :-)
Ed in Seattle 7:24:01 PM
Well, they own the song now! Such a great performance!
Matt Moon (host) 7:51:52 PM
Thanks so much for listening!
