Grant Phabao and Djouls - 21st Century Afro Vol.3
(MP3 Podcast on www.ParisDJs.com) T.I.M.E.C., 2009-01-14

This 3rd volume of 21st Century African music begins in Asheville, North Carolina (USA) with The Afromotive, fusing Afrobeat, Funk and improvisation. Did someone say "jamband"? The trombone/trumpet player Brian Bender (from New England, USA) could easily fit in that category, since he's been playing with numerous bands across the globe, from latin jazz, to samba reggae, african, calypso, klezmer, celtic, arabic, turkish, middle eastern, jazz, blues, dixieland, afrobeat and funk! Next we have Nomo from Michigan, USA, with an extract from their latest album, "Ghost Rock", one of the most innovative records of 2008, heavily mixing Krautrock with Afrobeat, Funk and Jazz. We then come back to some HUGE recent afrofunk albums, the Karl Hector & The Malcouns one (from Germany) and the second Budos Band long player (New York, USA). We're kinda pushing those records a lot and proud of doing so. Buy them if you still haven't!! We close this selection with Chicago Afrobeat Project from Chicago, USA, with a track taken from "(A) Move To Silent Unrest", their latest and best album yet, a true crossover of Afrobeat and Jazz.
