Podcast: Live from 21st Century Tana!
Less talking, more music! This podcast surveys live recordings Afropop Worldwide made in Antananarivo, Madagascar, in spring 2014. From the frenetic dance grooves of Aly Mourad and Thominot, to the acoustic guitar mastery of D'Gary, Sammy, Johnny, and the jazz-fused Silo, to soulful folkloric performances... It's a full-course musical meal from a spectacular and under-recognized destination. Here are images of the artists heard in this podcast: [caption id="attachment_21349" align="aligncenter" width="600"]Aly Mourad, Jao's Pub (Eyre 2014) Aly Mourad, live salegy at Jao's Pub (Eyre 2014)[/caption] [caption id="attachment_21350" align="aligncenter" width="600"]Angela and Mangaliba group at Rajery's studio in Tana (Eyre 2014) Angela and Mangaliba group at Rajery's studio in Tana (Eyre 2014)[/caption] [caption id="attachment_21359" align="aligncenter" width="600"]Surzi and Matthieu, at Rajery's studio in Tana (Eyre 2014) Surzi and Matthieu, Appalachian (not really!)
