Manu Boubli - Tribute To Henri Guedon

Manu Boubli - Tribute To Henri Guedon
(exclusive MP3 mix for www.ParisDJs.com) Comet/Mind, 2005-03-03
File under : Salsa/Zouk

Info :
Percussionniste, peintre et poète, Henri Guedon est mort il y a quelques jours à Paris. L'homme qui a amené le son Fania à Paris, le premier musicien français à avoir joué avec les maitres de la musique afro-cubaine (Sabu Martinez, Ray Barretto, Marty Sheller...) méritait qu'on lui adresse un ultime salut... Entre classiques et raretés (l'album qu'il a fait avec le brésilien Solon Gonçalves à Paris!), "Ça Ka Zouké" sur le son des Antilles!

Percussionnist, painter and poet, Henri Guedon died a few days ago in Paris. The man who brought the Fania sound to Paris, the first French musician to play with the masters of the afro-cuban music (Sabu Martinez, Ray Barretto, Marty Sheller...) deserved an ultimate au revoir... Between classics and rarities (the album he did with Brazilian Solon Gonçalves in Paris!), "Ça Ka Zouké" on the sound of the Antilles!

Apologies from a non-French speaking Australian, but...

You've the best tunes/podcasts on the web. At last I've got my iTunes to subscribe to your feed, but I can't get any Archived casts, only (the superb) Charles Is The One Vol.1.

How can I access your older podcasts? Especially... Doctor L & Manu Boubli - Mind Radio Show #3

Everything is everything, and your everything is very very good indeed.

Much thanks and Antipodean respect.

Hope to hear your past as well as future.

peace rob p
