Afropop Premier- Fatou Kounkoun Sissoko (Sol Power All-Star Remix)
Ready for a burst of Malian Sunshine? Of course you are! Even more ready for the best party since New Year's? We shouldn't even have to ask... With no further ado then, we present a piece of trans-traditionalism, a funked up, slicked down, sky-rooted, digitized, dusted, and overwhelmingly DANCEWORTHY track that mixes the freshest of freshest with the deepest of deep. Featuring the imitable vocals of Cheick Hamala Diabate, a master Griot from Mali who is currently based in DC, the Sol Power All-Stars have created a piece of radically down home groove, a total burner that will most certainly KILL on the dancefloor. And even better, they're going to do it all LIVE, playing with Cheick on Friday, Jan 18th, at the Tropicalia in DC. So if your in town? You know where you should be. and if not? Be happy with what you get- one of the coolest things we've heard so far this year. Give it a listen! [soundcloud url="" iframe="true" /] and then check out the event details HERE.
