SUDAN

Program:

Air date: 
Thu, 05/08/2014 - 2:00pm - 4:00pm
Short Description: 
Music from Sudan

The vibrant musical traditions of Sudan are the focus on this week's show.  We do not hear a great deal of music from Sudan, in part due to the social disruption caused by decades of internal conflict.  The end of the second Sudanese civil war in 2005 promised to usher in an era of peace, but that dream would be short-lived, as the war in Darfur soon erupted.  The 2011 referendum creating an independent South Sudan again brought hope, but at present that new nation is torn with horrendous violence.  The music on this week's program does not reflect current realities, but much of it comes from that brief period when the window of opportunity for peace and reconciliation appeared open.

W/ Special Musical Guest; Kildjate Moussa Albadé (TisDass, ex Bombino) & Co-Host Ibrahim Mohamedine

Africa O-Ye! is pleased to present a very special episode: “Free People: Toureg Sounds of Sahara” We’ve had the privilege of spending some extraodinary time with the masterful “Desert Blues” songwriter Kildjate Moussa Albade and his insightful cousin Ibrahim Mohamedine, drinking tea and making friends in the process. Moussa and Ibrahim both hail from the Azawagh regions of northeastern Niger, and strongly identify with their Tuareg roots; a historically nomadic people of Berber descent who have made their homees throughout the eastern Sahara and Sahel of North Africa for centuries.

Minimalism in Africa: Terry Riley's "In C" travels to Mali.  On this week's installment of Africa O-Yé, we aired a recent Malian recording of "In C", the influential minimalist work by the American composer Terry Riley.  In C Mali is performed by a large ensemble of mostly traditional African instrumentalists led by Damon Albarn.  The first hour of the show featured other recent innovative music from Mali and Guinée.  
This week's host: Andy Hosch.

Here is a link to an informative article from The Guardian about "In C" and "In C Mali" that includes a live performance video:
