Globalwize Radioshow #412

28/10/2022Weltbeat Host/Selector Jean Trouillet Presents A New Episode Of His Far-Reaching Global Format

Alas, the weekend is near and as we wrap things up here at the Greedy headquarters, we would like to point you to the latest episode of Weltbeat host and selector Jean Trouillet's far-reaching Globalwize format. Jean recently returned to his home studio in Frankfurt to present and record another two hours of musical goodness from around the world.

His  "Globalwize Radioshow #412" kicks off with two afrofuturistic tracks off the new album "The New Faith" by award-winning musician and scholar of Black American music, Jake Blount, on Smithsonian Folkways Recordings. From there we head to sitar player and composer Purbayan Chatterjee and his lifelong friend and flautist Rakesh Chaurasia, who recently released a new longplayer, demonstrating sublime chemistry and an innovative approach to Indian classical music (read more here). After a short chat with his studio guest Petra Klaus, presenting the New Generation Independent Indian Film Festival, we hear a classic track by The Beatles off their "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" longplayer, which serves as a transition to two tracks off the 2021-released soundtrack "Songs Inspired by the Film The Beatles and India". Taking over from there is acclaimed British composer, producer and musician Nitin Sawhney with a track off his 2021-released "Immigrants" album, before Tehran-born and Montreal-based setar virtuoso and Kiya Tabassian, Tunisian singer Ghalia Benali and the Constantinople ensemble wander "In the Foosteps of Rumi" and Israeli-Persian singer Liraz follows that up with "Roya" (Female Version) off her current longplayer of the same name (read more here). Next, we have Danish master percussionist and composer Marilyn Mazur's Shamania with a track from her album "Rerooting", combining brand-new and older composition of hers as interpreted by ten women from the independent Scandinavian scene. Polish band Kroke then present a track from their recent 30th anniversary album "Loud Silence". Adding even more delightful sounds to the mix is American classically trained harpist Mary Lattimore with a track found on the latest "Fictions (Made to Measure Vol. 47)" compilation by Crammed Discs. From there, we head to Ghana for a newbie by the great Ghanaian highlife musician Gyedu-Blay Ambolley off his current 'Hi-Life Jazz' album, which brings us to the final track of the show, i.e. "The Muslim Highlife" of Nigerian icon Alhaji Waziri Oshomah.
