Blitz The Ambassador - World People 02



Blitz The Ambassador World People 02
Blitz The Ambassador - World People 02
(MP3 Podcast on ParisDJs.com) 2011-05-02

The World People concept is quite easy: we meet artists in Paris, shoot some photos, ask them for a playlist of what they're currently listening to, we publish a mix of the thing, and find in the artist' selection the next guest. Our first guest, Seun Kuti, had Blitz The Ambassador in his selection - and what a blast it's been to discover this Ghanean-American's Afro-Hip Hop bombs!! His new album Native Sun will be out this week and if you get the chance to go and check him onstage, don't hesitate!! If in doubt, peek at his video channel, you'll be amazed...

Following some of Frank Zappa's conceptual continuity ideas, the next guest in this new World People series will be one of the artists playlisted by Blitz The Ambassador, hopefully Nneka who'll be playing in Paris and around this week Won't be Nneka since Christian & Antoine @ Jive Records didn't bother to reply...
