30/11/2022Weltbeat Host/Selector Jean Trouillet Delivers A New Episode Of His Far-Reaching Global Format

Here we are. Can you believe it? Welcome to the last month of 2022. And with that, here comes another edition of Weltbeat host and selector Jean Trouillet's far-reaching Globalwize format. We just uploaded show #413 to our Greedio Mixcloud channel to provide you with another two hours of extraordinary global sounds. And yes, we'll have more for you coming right up, but first, let's see what this episode has in store for us, shall we?

"Globalwize Radioshow #413" kicks off on a rhythmic note with Sydney's Jeremy Rose and his eight-piece Earshift Orchestra on "Disruption! The Voice of Drums", a "thrilling tribute to the timeless, visceral and disruptive power of the drum," and continues with South African jazz bassist Carlo Mombelli and his "Lullaby for Planet Earth". After that, we have Copenhagen-based Gambian kora player Dawda Jobarteh with two pieces from his new album "Do You Know a Place Called Flekkeroy?", before heading to Dakar for a new trans-continental project by iconic French producer GUTS, retracing the roots of Afro-Cuban music on "Estrellas" (read more here). We then sample the new and tenth studio album "Interconnectedness" by Portuguese jazz singer and songwriter of Cape Verdean heritage Carmen Souza, recorded alongside her musical partner Theo Pascal, and then hear two tracks off the new album "Sequana" by Franco-Algerian singer-songwriter Souad Massi, produced by Justin Adams (you can also hear "Mirage" in our "Greedio X October '22" playlist) .

Moving on, we hear a track from the new album "Night Trippin'" by Paris-based singer Hugh Coltman and guitarist Matthis Pascaud, a tribute to the legendary jazz, blues and rock 'n' roll singer and 'voodoo rock' pioneer Dr. John. Berlin-based multi-genre violist, violinist and composer Sebastian Peszko is next, presenting his personal "Journey" on Galileo Music, before Nova Scotian folk-without-borders duo Mama's Broke showcase two tracks from their current album "Narrow Line". We then embark on a five-track exploration of the late Portuguese singer-songwriter José Afonso, who is considered 'the voice of the Carnation Revolution' and whose seminal albums were recently reissued on Mais 5.

Argentinian producer, DJ, remixer and composer Chancha via Circuito follows that up with two digital cumbia tracks from his current fifth album "La Estrella" on Wonderwheel, which works well with Angola-born and Lisbon-based artist Batida and two tracks taken from his debut album "Neon Colonialismo" on Crammed Discs, one featuring Angolan icon Bonga and the other featuring popular Cape Verdean singer Mayra Andrade. After that, Trouillet lines up two tracks by Cuban singer and guitarist Eliades Ochoa (Buena Vista Social Club), to be found on the reissue of his latest album "Vamos A Bailar Un Son". In closing, we hear a final track by the Nishtiman Project's "Nowruz: Spring in Kurdistan" album, "a project inspired by an extensive Kurdish collective memory while respecting the particularities of each dialect," released on Accords Croisés.
