Along the way, Georges grooves us with tunes from Khaled, Amadou & Mariam, Rokia Traore, Los Amigos Invisibles, Femi Kuti and more. We will fill you up!

Featured Artists

Khaled

khaledAt this point, Khaled probably doesn't need all that much introduction.... But, just it in case, keep in mind that the man is an absolute powerhouse of Rai, the rebelliously explicit Algerian music that came to prominence in the 80's. Born in Oran, he first started recording under the name Cheb Khaled (Young Khaled). While he has since dropped the Cheb, the intervening years have stripped nothing of his vocal prowess.

Femi Kuti
