Globalwize Radioshow #450

21/06/2024Listen To A Fresh Globalwize 'Reggae & Black Music' Special W/ Studio Guest Jack Sapphire

Believe it or not, Mixcloud threw a wrench in this one. We've literally been trying to upload this new instalment of WeltBeat host and selector Jean Trouillet's Globalwize format for well over a week. For reasons unknown, the upload kept stalling. That being said, here it is, the "Globalwize Radioshow #450", which is a 'Reggae & Black Music" special featuring stalwart Globalwize supporter, reggae/roots head and longtime friend Jack Sapphire. Trouillet and Sapphire link up once again to bring us a fresh two hours of Afro-infused sounds from around the globe, available to be streamed à volonté via our Greedio channel on Mixcloud. 

The "Globalwize Radioshow #450" includes an outstanding lineup of international artists delivering a wide array of reggae- and Black-Music-inspired styles from the global spectrum, such as Nairobi's Nina Ogot, London's Nubiyan Twist, Dadadi and Nana Budjei from the recently released "Ghana Special 2: Electronic Highlife & Afro Sounds in the Diaspora 1980-1993" compilation on Soundway Records, phenomenal French post-punk outfit Nouvelle Vague, the one-and-only Bob Marley and an Addis Live tribute to him, the late Jamaican reggae icon Peter Tosh, Heptones Expression with the classic "Callie Weed" anthem, Jamaican reggae outfit the Twinkle Brothers, fellow Jamaican singer-songwriter Burning Spear and the late pioneer of toasting U-Roy, legendary UK reggae outfit Aswad, Jamaican dub poet Michael 'Mikey' Smith and, last but not least, Birmingham roots reggae greats Steel Pulse.

You can now revisit the full show via the player below or head directly to our greedio channel on Mixloud for that and more quality audio content. Find the detailed playlist here. Have a nice weekend!
