Africa Express@Glastonbury


The Guardian’s main section featured an interesting round-up of the Glastonbury festival forays of yet another Damon Albarn-affiliated project, Africa Express. The concept is a marriage of quality African musicians of various genres and willing western artists (with a seeming emphasis on the former), brilliantly brought into life on one of Glasto’s more intimate settings, The Park Stage. Above is a sweet tune from Guinean band Ba Cissoko, featuring rising Somalian/Canadian MC K’Naan. Below you’ll find a decent video of UK grime prodigy Kano (whose myspace features some quality stuff) plus Scratch featuring Albarn himself on keys. Plenty more excellent live vids from the likes of Amadou and Mariam and Gang of Four can be seen here. Ch ch check it.
