Drummer Tony Allen
Music of the influential Nigerian-born drummer Tony Allen.  Instrumental in forming the foundations of Afrobeat, Allen was drummer & musical director of Fela Kuti's band, Africa 70.  Immersed in his youth with the sounds of traditional Yoruba music, Juju, and Highlife, Allen adaptded these rhythms to the drum kit, with a masterful technique informed by such jazz icons as Max Roach and Art Blakey, and a deep soulful groove.  Today's program will feature Allen's work from the time of his 1979 split with Fela through the present.  host: Andy Hosch

SUDAN

Program: 
Africa-O-Ye!
Air date: 
Thu, 05/08/2014 - 2:00pm - 4:00pm
Short Description: 
Music from Sudan

The vibrant musical traditions of Sudan are the focus on this week's show.  We do not hear a great deal of music from Sudan, in part due to the social disruption caused by decades of internal conflict.  The end of the second Sudanese civil war in 2005 promised to usher in an era of peace, but that dream would be short-lived, as the war in Darfur soon erupted.  The 2011 referendum creating an independent South Sudan again brought hope, but at present that new nation is torn with horrendous violence.  The music on this week's program does not reflect current realities, but much of it comes from that brief period when the window of opportunity for peace and reconciliation appeared open.

This time on Africa Oyé, the first of two programs focusing on the Ethiopiques series: 27 volumes of Ethiopian music released over the last 14 years on the Paris-based world music label, Buda Musique.  Most of this material was recorded during the 'golden age' of Ethiopian music, in the1960s and '70s before the long civil war seriously disrupted all elements of Ethiopian society.  Also in the series are archival recordings of traditional music, and a few recent recordings too, some involving collaborations between European or American musicians and some of the classic Ethiopian artists.  Many listeners may be familiar with a few of the featured artists, such as Mahmoud Ahmed, Mulatu Astatke, or Getachew Mekurya, but there is much, much more hidden within this marvelous series. We will finish up next month.   -dj timbuktunes
